Prophecies against Neighboring Nations; Rejoice, daughter of Zion, your King comes to you!

A revelation.The LORD's word is against the land of Hadrach,and will rest upon Damascus;for the eye of manand of all the tribes of Israel is toward The LORD; +
and Hamath, also, which borders on it;Tyre and Sidon, because they are very wise. +
Tyre built herself a stronghold,and heaped up silver like the dust,and fine gold like the mire of the streets. +
Behold, the Lord will dispossess her,and he will strike her power in the sea;and she will be devoured with fire. +
Ashkelon will see it, and fear;Gaza also, and will writhe in agony;as will Ekron, for her expectation will be disappointed;and the king will perish from Gaza,and Ashkelon will not be inhabited. +
Foreigners will dwell in Ashdod,and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines. +
I will take away his blood out of his mouth,and his abominations from between his teeth;and he also will be a remnant for our God;and he will be as a chieftain in Judah,and Ekron as a Jebusite. +
I will encamp around my house against the army,that no one pass through or return;and no oppressor will pass through them any more:for now I have seen with my eyes. +
Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion!Shout, daughter of Jerusalem!Behold, your King comes to you!He is righteous, and having salvation;lowly, and riding on a donkey,even on a colt, the foal of a donkey. +
I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim,and the horse from Jerusalem;and the battle bow will be cut off;and he will speak peace to the nations:and his dominion will be from sea to sea,and from the River to the ends of the earth. +
As for you also,because of the blood of your covenant,I have set free your prisoners from the pit in which is no water. +
Turn to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope!Even today I declare that I will restore double to you. +
For indeed I bend Judah as a bow for me.I have filled the bow with Ephraim;and I will stir up your sons, Zion,against your sons, Greece,and will make you like the sword of a mighty man. +
The LORD will be seen over them;and his arrow will go flash like lightning;and the Lord the LORD will blow the trumpet,and will go with whirlwinds of the south. +
The LORD of Armies will defend them;and they will destroy and overcome with sling stones;and they will drink, and roar as through wine;and they will be filled like bowls,like the corners of the altar. +
The LORD their God will save them in that day as the flock of his people;for they are like the jewels of a crown,lifted on high over his land. +
For how great is his goodness,and how great is his beauty!Grain will make the young men flourish,and new wine the virgins. +
