Ashkelon will see it and be afraid;

to the ends of the earth.

you prisoners who have hope;

today I declare that I will restore double to you.

and his arrow will fly like lightning.

The Lord GOD will sound the trumpet

and advance with the southern storms.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 9:15 -

The LORD of Armies will defend them.

They will consume and conquer with slingstones;

They will be as full as the sprinkling basin,

like those at the corners of the altar.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 9:16 -

The LORD their God will save them on that day

as the flock of his people;

for they are like jewels in a crown,

sparkling over his land.

How lovely and beautiful!

Grain will make the young men flourish,

and new wine, the young women.
