1 But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the a of the house of the Lord shall be b in the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it.
2 And many nations shall come, and say, Come, and let us go up to the a of the Lord, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will b in his paths: for the c shall go forth of d, and the word of the Lord from e.
3 ¶And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their a into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn b any more.
4 But they shall sit every man under his a and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.
5 For all people will walk every one in the a of his god, and we will walk in the b of the Lord our God for ever and ever.
6 In that day, saith the Lord, will I assemble her that a, and I will b her that is driven out, and her that I have afflicted;
7 And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the Lord shall a over them in mount b from henceforth, even for ever.
8 ¶And thou, O tower of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, unto thee shall it come, even the first dominion; the kingdom shall come to the daughter of Jerusalem.
9 Now why dost thou cry out aloud? is there no king in thee? is thy counsellor perished? for pangs have taken thee as a woman in travail.
10 Be in pain, and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in a: for now shalt thou go forth out of the city, and thou shalt dwell in the field, and thou shalt go even to b; there shalt thou be delivered; there the Lord shall redeem thee from the hand of thine c.
11 ¶Now also many nations are a against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, and let our eye look upon Zion.
12 But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither understand they his counsel: for he shall gather them as the sheaves into the floor.
13 Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horn iron, and I will make thy hoofs brass: and thou shalt a in pieces many people: and I will b their gain unto the Lord, and their substance unto the Lord of the whole earth.
