Geneva Study Bible
   1: A word of the Lord: The Lord has come to the land of Hadrach, and Damascus is his resting-place: for the towns of Aram are the Lord's,
   2: As well as Hamath, which is by its limit, and Tyre and Zidon, because they are very wise.
   3: And Tyre made for herself a strong place, and got together silver like dust and the best gold like the earth of the streets.
   4: See, the Lord will take away her heritage, overturning her power in the sea; and she will be burned up with fire.
   5: Ashkelon will see it with fear, and Gaza, bent with pain; and Ekron, for her hope will be shamed: and the king will be cut off from Gaza, and Ashkelon will be unpeopled.
   6: And a mixed people will be living in Ashdod, and I will have the pride of the Philistines cut off.
   7: And I will take away his blood from his mouth, and his disgusting things from between his teeth; and some of his people will be kept for our God: and he will be as a family in Judah, and Ekron as one living in Jerusalem.
   8: And I will put my forces in position round my house, so that there may be no coming and going: and no cruel master will again go through them: for now I have seen his trouble.
   9: Be full of joy, O daughter of Zion; give a glad cry, O daughter of Jerusalem: see, your king comes to you: he is upright and has overcome; gentle and seated on an ass, on a young ass.
   10: And he will have the war-carriage cut off from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the bow of war will be cut off: and he will say words of peace to the nations: and his rule will be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.
   11: And as for you, because of the blood of your agreement, I have sent out your prisoners from the deep hole in which there is no water.
   12: And they will come back to you, O daughter of Zion, as prisoners of hope: today I say to you that I will give you back twice as much;
   13: For I have made Judah a bow bent for my use, I have made Ephraim the arrows of the bow; I will make your sons, O Zion, take up arms against your sons, O Greece, and will make you like the sword of a man of war.
   14: And the Lord will be seen over them, and his arrow will go out like the thunder-flame: and the Lord God, sounding the war-horn, will go in the storm-winds of the South.
   15: The Lord of armies will be a cover for them; and they will overcome, crushing under foot the armed men; they will take their blood for drink like wine: they will be full like the sides of the altar.
   16: And the Lord their God will be their saviour in that day, giving them food like the flock of his people: for they will be like the jewels of a crown shining over his land.
   17: For how good it is and how beautiful! grain will make the young men strong and new wine the virgins.
