I saw the Lord standing besidea the altar, and he said: 1"Strike the capitals until 2the thresholds 3shake, 4and shatter them on the heads of all the people;b and those who are left of them I will kill with the sword; 5not one of them shall flee away; not one of them shall escape.
If they hide themselves on 8the top of Carmel, from there I will search them out and take them; 9and if they hide from my sight at the bottom of the sea, there I will command the serpent, and it shall bite them.
Hebrew; Septuagint (compare Acts 15:17) that the remnant of mankind and all the nations who are called by my name may seek the Lord
"Behold, the days are coming," declares the LORD, 30"when the plowman shall overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him who sows the seed; 31the mountains shall drip sweet wine, and all the hills shall flow with it.
1432I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and 33they shall rebuild the ruined cities and inhabit them; 34they shall plant vineyards and drink their wine, and they shall make gardens and eat their fruit.
