1 a the Lord will have b on Jacob, and will yet c Israel, and set them in their own d: and the e shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.
2 And the a, and b them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the Lord for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them c, whose captives they were; and they shall d over their oppressors.
3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,
4 ¶That thou shalt take up this a against the king of b, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the c city ceased!
5 The Lord hath broken the a of the b, and the sceptre of the rulers.
6 He who smote the people in wrath with a, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.
7 The whole earth is at a, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.
8 Yea, the a rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art b, c feller is come up against us.
9 a from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the b for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?
11 Thy pomp is brought down to a, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.
12 How art thou a from b, O c, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the d!
13 For thou hast said in thine a, b will ascend into heaven, I will c my d above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the e:
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the a High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to a, to the sides of the pit.
16 They that see a shall b, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
18 All the kings of the nations, even all of them, lie in a, every one in b.
19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like a, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to b of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.
20 Thou shalt not be a with them in burial, because thou hast destroyed thy land, and slain thy people: the b of c shall never be renowned.
21 a slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
22 For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of hosts, and a from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Lord.
23 I will also make it a possession for the a, and pools of water: and I will sweep it with the b of destruction, saith the Lord of hosts.
24 ¶The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
25 That a will break the Assyrian in my land, and upon b tread him under foot: then shall his c depart from off them, and his burden depart from off their shoulders.
26 This is the purpose that is purposed upon the whole a: and this is the hand that is stretched out upon b.
27 For the Lord of hosts hath a, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?
28 In the a that king b died was this c.
29 ¶Rejoice not thou, whole a, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.
30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.
31 a, O gate; cry, O city; thou, whole b, art dissolved: for there shall come from the north a smoke, and none shall be alone in his appointed times.
32 What shall one then answer the messengers of the a? That the Lord hath founded b, and the c of his people shall d.
