Therefore shall the Lord, Jehovah a of hosts, send among his fat ones leanness, and under his glory he shall kindle a burning, like the burning of a fire:
and the light of Israel shall be for a fire, and his Holy One for a flame; and it shall burn and devour his thorns and his briars in one day,
and it shall consume the glory of his forest, and of his fruitful field, both soul and body; and they shall be as when a sick man fainteth.
And the remainder of the trees of his forest shall be few: yea, a child might write them.
And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the remnant of Israel and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob shall no more again rely upon him that smote them; but they shall rely upon Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
The remnant shall return, b the remnant of Jacob, unto the mighty God.
For though thy people Israel be as the sand of the sea, [only] a remnant of them shall return: the consumption determined c shall overflow in righteousness.
For a consumption, and [one] determined, will the Lord, Jehovah of hosts, accomplish in the midst of all the land. d24
Therefore thus saith the Lord, Jehovah of hosts: O my people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of the Assyrian; he shall smite thee with a rod, and shall lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt:
for yet a very little while, and the indignation shall be accomplished, and mine anger, in their destruction.
And Jehovah of hosts will stir up a scourge against him, according to the slaughter of Midian at the rock of Oreb; and his rod [shall be] upon the sea, and he will lift it up after the manner of Egypt.
