2 And the apeople shall take them, and bbring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the Lord for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them ccaptives, whose captives they were; and they shall drule over their oppressors.
3 And it shall come to pass in the day that the Lord shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,
6 He who smote the people in wrath with aa continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.
7 The whole earth is at arest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.
9 aHell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the bdead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.
10 All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?
11 Thy pomp is brought down to athe grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the amost High.
15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to ahell, to the sides of the pit.
17 That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?
19 But thou art cast out of thy grave like aan abominable branch, and as the raiment of those that are slain, thrust through with a sword, that go down to bthe stones of the pit; as a carcase trodden under feet.
21 aPrepare slaughter for his children for the iniquity of their fathers; that they do not rise, nor possess the land, nor fill the face of the world with cities.
22 For I will rise up against them, saith the Lord of hosts, and acut off from Babylon the name, and remnant, and son, and nephew, saith the Lord.
24 ¶ The Lord of hosts hath sworn, saying, Surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:
27 For the Lord of hosts hath apurposed, and who shall disannul it? and his hand is stretched out, and who shall turn it back?
29 ¶ Rejoice not thou, whole aPalestina, because the rod of him that smote thee is broken: for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit shall be a fiery flying serpent.
30 And the firstborn of the poor shall feed, and the needy shall lie down in safety: and I will kill thy root with famine, and he shall slay thy remnant.
