12Return to the b3stronghold, O prisonerscwho have the 4hope ; This veryday I am declaring that I will restore5double to you.
For I will 6bendJudahdas My bow, I will fill the bow with Ephraim. And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O 7Greece ; And I will make you like a 8warrior'ssword.
Then the LORD will appear9over them, And His 10arrow will goforth like lightning ; And the LordeGOD will blow the 11trumpet, And will march in the 12stormwinds of the south.
1513The LORD of hosts will defend them. And they will 14devour and trample on the 15slingstones ; And they will drink and be 16boisterous as with wine ; And they will be filled like a sacrificial basin, Drenched like the 17corners of the altar.
And the LORD their God will 18save them in that day As the flock of His people ; For they are as the stones of a 19crown, fSparkling in His land.
For whatg20comeliness and 21beauty will be htheirs! Grain will make the youngmenflourish, and newwine the virgins.
