burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of
the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah
and against Jerusalem.
3And in that day will
I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all
the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes
upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
5And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength
in the LORD of hosts their God.
6In that day
will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall
devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place,
even in Jerusalem.
7The LORD also shall save
the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify
themselves against Judah.
8In that day shall
the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house
of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.
it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him,
as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
11In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of
Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the
house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;
family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;
14All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.
