Jerusalem to Be Attacked

1 The burden F125 of the word of the LORD concerning Israel.

Thus declares the LORD who stretches R332 out the heavens, lays R333 the foundation of the earth, and forms R334 the spirit of man within him, 2 "Behold, I am going to make Jerusalem a cup R335 that F126 causes reeling to all the peoples around; and when the siege is against Jerusalem, it will also be against Judah. R336 3 "It will come about in that day that I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone R337 for all the peoples; all who lift it will be severely R338 injured. F127 And all the nations R339 of the earth will be gathered against it. 4 "In that day," declares the LORD, "I will strike every horse with bewilderment and his rider with madness. But I will watch F128 over the house of Judah, while I strike every horse of the peoples with blindness. 5 "Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, `A F129 strong support for us are the inhabitants of Jerusalem through the LORD of hosts, their God.'

6 "In that day I will make the clans of Judah like a firepot R340 among pieces of wood and a flaming torch among sheaves, so they will consume on the right hand and on the left all the surrounding peoples, while the inhabitants R341 of Jerusalem again dwell on their own sites in Jerusalem. 7 "The LORD also will save R342 the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David R343 and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem will not be magnified above Judah. 8 "In that day the LORD will defend R344 the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and the one who is R345 F130 feeble among them in that day will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, R346 like the angel R347 of the LORD before them. 9 "And in that day I will set R348 F131 about to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

10 "I will pour R349 out on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the F132 Spirit of grace and of supplication, so that they will look on Me whom they have pierced; R350 and they will mourn for Him, as one mourns R351 for an only son, and they will weep bitterly over Him like the bitter weeping over a firstborn. 11 "In that day there will be great mourning R352 in Jerusalem, like the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the plain F133 of Megiddo. F134 12 "The land will mourn, every family by itself; the family of the house of David by itself and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself and their wives by themselves; 13 the family of the house of Levi by itself and their wives by themselves; the family of the Shimeites by itself and their wives by themselves; 14 all the families that remain, every family by itself and their wives by themselves.
