I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem; and the battle bow will be cut off;
and he will speak peace to the nations:
and his dominion will be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth. As for you also, because of the blood of your covenant, I have set free your prisoners from the pit in which is no water. Turn to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope! Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.
For indeed I bend Judah as a bow for me.
I have filled the bow with Ephraim;
and I will stir up your sons, Zion, against your sons, Greece, and will make you like the sword of a mighty man.
Yahweh will be seen over them; and his arrow will flash like lightning; and the Lord Yahweh will blow the trumpet, and will go with whirlwinds of the south.
