Jerusalem to Be Attacked

1 The burden of the word of the LORD concerning Israel. Thus declares the LORD who 1 stretches out the heavens, 2 lays the foundation of the earth, and 3 forms the spirit of man within him,
2 "Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a 4cup that causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against 5Judah.
3 "It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy 6stone for all the peoples; all who lift it will be 7severely injured. And all the 8nations of the earth will be gathered against it.
4 "In that day," declares the LORD, "I will strike every horse with bewilderment and his rider with madness. But I will watch * over the house of Judah, while I strike every horse of the peoples with blindness.
5 "Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, 'A strong support for us are the inhabitants of Jerusalem through the LORD of hosts, their God.'
