I will remove the battle chariots from Israel a and the warhorses from Jerusalem, and I will destroy all the weapons used in battle. Your king will bring peace to the nations. His realm will stretch from sea to sea and from the Euphrates River b to the ends of the earth. c11
Because of the covenant I made with you, sealed with blood, I will free your prisoners from death in a waterless dungeon.
Come back to the place of safety, all you prisoners, for there is yet hope! I promise this very day that I will repay you two mercies for each of your woes!
Judah is my bow, and Israel is my arrow! Jerusalem d is my sword, and like a warrior, I will brandish it against the Greeks. e
