The Nations Will Be Judged
1“For behold, in those days and at that time,
2I will gather all the nations,
3“They have also cast lots for My people,
4“Moreover, what are you to Me, O Tyre, Sidon, and all the regions of Philistia? Are you rendering Me a recompense? But if you do recompense Me, swiftly and speedily I will return your recompense on your head. 5“Since you have taken My silver and My gold, brought My precious treasures to your temples, 6and sold the sons of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks in order to remove them far from their territory, 7behold, I am going to arouse them from the place where you have sold them, and return your recompense on your head. 8“Also I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hand of the sons of Judah, and they will sell them to the Sabeans, to a distant nation,” for the LORD has spoken.
9Proclaim this among the nations:
10Beat your plowshares into swords,
11Hasten and come, all you surrounding nations,
12Let the nations be aroused
13Put in the sickle, for the harvest is ripe.
14Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision!
15The sun and moon grow dark,
16And the LORD roars from Zion
17Then you will know that I am the LORD your God,
Judah Will Be Blessed
18And it will come about in that day
19Egypt will become a waste,
20But Judah will be inhabited forever,
21And I will avenge their blood which I have not avenged,
