 1 It will come to pass in the last days,

 that the mountain of the house of Yahweh

 will be established

 as the chief of the mountains.

 It will be lifted up above the hills,

 and peoples will stream to it.


 2 Many nations will go and say,

 “Come and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh

 and to the house of the God of Jacob,

 and he will teach us of his ways,

 and we will walk in his paths.”

 For the law will go out of Zion

 and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem,


 3 and he will judge between many peoples,

 and will decide concerning strong nations

 afar off.

 They will beat their swords into plowblades

 and their spears into pruning hooks.

 Nation will not lift up sword against nation,

 neither will they learn war any more.


 4 But they will sit, every man, under his vine

 and under his fig tree,

 and no one will make them afraid;

 for the mouth of Yahweh of Armies

 has spoken.


 5 Indeed all the nations may walk

 in the name of their gods;

 but we will walk in the name of Yahweh our God

 forever and ever.


In that day,

 says Yahweh,

 I will assemble that which is lame,

 and I will gather that which is driven away,

 and that which I have afflicted;


 7 and I will make that which was lame a remnant,

 and that which was cast far off a strong nation,

 and Yahweh will reign over them on Mount Zion

 from then on, even forever.


 8 You, tower of the flock,

 the fortified hill of Daughter Zion,

 to you it will come,

 yes, the former dominion will come,

 the kingdom of Daughter Jerusalem.


Now why do you cry out aloud?

 Is there no king in you?

 Has your counselor perished,

 that pains have taken hold of you as of a woman in travail?


 10 Be in pain, and labor to bring forth,

 daughter of Zion,

 like a woman in travail;

 for now you will go out of the city

 and will dwell in the field,

 and will come even to Babylon.

 There you will be rescued;

 there Yahweh will redeem you

 from the hand of your enemies.


 11 Now many nations have assembled against you

 that say, “Let her be defiled,

 and let our eye gloat over Zion.”


 12 But they do not know the thoughts of Yahweh,

 neither do they understand his counsel;

 for he has gathered them

 like the sheaves to the threshing floor.


 13 Arise and thresh, daughter of Zion;

 for I will make your horn iron,

 and I will make your hoofs bronze,

 and you will beat in pieces many peoples:

 and I will devote their gain to Yahweh

 and their substance to the Lord of the whole earth.
