1It 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.
  2And many nations will come and say, “Come and let us go up to the mountain of Yahweh and to the house of the God of Jacob, so that he can teach us about his ways, so that we can walk in his paths.” For the law will go forth out of Zion and the word of Yahweh from Jerusalem,
  3and he will judge between many peoples, and will decide concerning strong nations that are far away. They will beat their swords into plowblades and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war any more.
  4But they will sit, each person, under his vine and under his fig tree, and no one will make them afraid; for the mouth of Yahweh of Armies has spoken.
  5Indeed 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.
  6In that day, says Yahweh, I will assemble the lame, and I will gather those who have been driven away, and those who I have afflicted;
  7and I will make the lame a remnant, and those who were cast far away into a strong nation, and Yahweh will reign over them on Mount Zion from then on, even forever.
  8You, 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.
  9Why are you now crying out aloud? Is there no king in you? Has your counselor perished, that pains have taken hold of you as of a woman in labor?
  10Writhe and labor to give birth, O Daughter Zion, like a woman in labor; for now you will go out of the city and will live in the field, and will go to Babylon. There you will be rescued; there Yahweh will redeem you from the hand of your enemies.
  11Now many nations have assembled against you, saying, “Let her be defiled, and let our eye gloat over Zion.”
  12But they do not know the thoughts of Yahweh, nor do they understand his counsel; for he has gathered them like the sheaves to the threshing floor.
  13Arise and thresh, Daughter 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 grain to Yahweh and their substance to the Lord of the whole earth.
