Because you have taken my silver and my gold, and have carried my finest treasures into your temples, and have sold the children of Judah and the children of Jerusalem to the sons of the Greeks, that you may remove them far from their border.
Behold, I will stir them up out of the place where you have sold them, and will return your repayment on your own head;
and I will sell your sons and your daughters into the hands of the children of Judah, and they will sell them to the men of Sheba ◆, to a faraway nation, for Yahweh has spoken it.”
Proclaim this among the nations: “Prepare for war! Stir up the mighty men. Let all the warriors draw near. Let them come up.
Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears. Let the weak say, ‘I am strong.’
Hurry and come, all you surrounding nations, and gather yourselves together.” Cause your mighty ones to come down there, Yahweh.
“Let the nations arouse themselves, and come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat; for there I will sit to judge all the surrounding nations.
