201In that day 2the remnant of Israel and the survivors of the house of Jacob will no more 3lean on him who struck them, but 4will lean on the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.
A remnant will return, the remnant of Jacob, 5to the mighty God.
226For though your people Israel be as the sand of the sea, 7only a remnant of them will return. 8Destruction is decreed, overflowing with righteousness.
For the Lord GOD of hosts will make a full end, as decreed, in the midst of all the earth.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD of hosts: "O my people, 9who dwell in Zion, 10be not afraid of the Assyrians when they strike with the rod and lift up their staff against you as 11the Egyptians did.
For 12in a very little while my fury will come to an end, and my anger will be directed to their destruction.
And 13the LORD of hosts will wield against them a whip, as when he struck 14Midian 15at the rock of Oreb. And his staff will be over the sea, and he will lift it 16as he did in Egypt.
And in that day 17his burden will depart from your shoulder, and 18his yoke from your neck; and the yoke will be broken because of the fat."a28
He has come to Aiath; he has passed through 19Migron; at Michmash he stores 20his baggage;
they have crossed over 21the pass; at 22Geba they lodge for the night; 23Ramah trembles; 24Gibeah of Saul has fled.
Cry aloud, O daughter of 25Gallim! Give attention, O Laishah! O poor 26Anathoth!
Madmenah is in flight; the inhabitants of Gebim flee for safety.
This very day he will halt at 27Nob; he will shake his fist at the mount of 28the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
Behold, the Lord GOD of hosts 29will lop 30the boughs with terrifying power; the great in height will be hewn down, and the lofty will be brought low.
He will cut down 31the thickets of the forest with an axe, and 32Lebanon will fall by the Majestic One.
