10 In that day(A) the Root of Jesse(B) will stand as a banner(C) for the peoples; the nations(D) will rally to him,(E) and his resting place(F) will be glorious.(G) 11 In that day(H) the Lord will reach out his hand a second time to reclaim the surviving remnant(I) of his people from Assyria,(J) from Lower Egypt, from Upper Egypt,(K) from Cush,[a](L) from Elam,(M) from Babylonia,[b] from Hamath(N) and from the islands(O) of the Mediterranean.(P)

12 He will raise a banner(Q) for the nations
    and gather(R) the exiles of Israel;(S)
he will assemble the scattered people(T) of Judah
    from the four quarters of the earth.(U)
13 Ephraim’s jealousy will vanish,
    and Judah’s enemies[c] will be destroyed;
Ephraim will not be jealous of Judah,
    nor Judah hostile toward Ephraim.(V)
14 They will swoop down on the slopes of Philistia(W) to the west;
    together they will plunder the people to the east.(X)
They will subdue Edom(Y) and Moab,(Z)
    and the Ammonites(AA) will be subject to them.(AB)
15 The Lord will dry up(AC)
    the gulf of the Egyptian sea;
with a scorching wind(AD) he will sweep his hand(AE)
    over the Euphrates River.(AF)
He will break it up into seven streams
    so that anyone can cross over in sandals.(AG)
16 There will be a highway(AH) for the remnant(AI) of his people
    that is left from Assyria,(AJ)
as there was for Israel
    when they came up from Egypt.(AK)
