1 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the a, and formeth the b of man within him.
2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a a of trembling unto all the b round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
3 ¶And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be a together against it.
4 In that day, saith the Lord, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the Lord of hosts their God.
6 ¶In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an a of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the b round about, on the right hand and on the left: and c shall be d again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
7 The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of a and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.
8 In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.
9 ¶And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to a all the nations that come against b.
10 And I will a upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of b and of supplications: and they shall c upon me whom they have d, and they shall e for him, as one mourneth for his f son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
11 In that day shall there be a great a in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
12 And the land shall a, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;
13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;
14 All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.
