And a amongrelrace will dwell in 1Ashdod, And I will cutoff the pride of the Philistines.
And I will remove their blood from their mouth And their detestablethings from between their teeth. Then they also will be a remnant for our God, And be like a bclan in Judah, And Ekron like a Jebusite.
But I will camp around My housecbecause of an army, Because of 2him who passes by and returns ; And 3nooppressor will passover them anymore, For now I have seen with My eyes.
94Rejoicegreatly, O daughter of Zion ! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem ! Behold, your 5king is coming to you; He is d6just and 7endowed with salvation, 8Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a 9colt, the efoal of a donkey.
I will 10cutoff the chariot from Ephraim And the 11horse from Jerusalem ; And the 12bow of war will be cutoff. And He will speak13peace to the nations ; And His 14dominion will be from sea to sea, And from the fRiver to the ends of the earth.
As for you also, because of the 15blood of My covenant with you, I have set your 16prisonersfree from the gwaterlesspit.
12Return to the h17stronghold, O prisonersiwho have the 18hope ; This veryday I am declaring that I will restore19double to you.
For I will 20bendJudahjas My bow, I will fill the bow with Ephraim. And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O 21Greece ; And I will make you like a 22warrior'ssword.
Then the LORD will appear23over them, And His 24arrow will goforth like lightning ; And the LordkGOD will blow the 25trumpet, And will march in the 26stormwinds of the south.
1527The LORD of hosts will defend them. And they will 28devour and trample on the 29slingstones ; And they will drink and be 30boisterous as with wine ; And they will be filled like a sacrificial basin, Drenched like the 31corners of the altar.
And the LORD their God will 32save them in that day As the flock of His people ; For they are as the stones of a 33crown, lSparkling in His land.
