26 (A)He will lift up a banner to the nations from afar,
And will (B)whistle to them from (C)the end of the earth;
Surely (D)they shall come with speed, swiftly.
27 No one will be weary or stumble among them,
No one will slumber or sleep;
Nor (E)will the belt on their loins be loosed,
Nor the strap of their sandals be broken;
28 (F)Whose arrows are sharp,
And all their bows bent;
Their horses’ hooves will [a]seem like flint,
And their wheels like a whirlwind.
29 Their roaring will be like a lion,
They will roar like young lions;
Yes, they will roar
And lay hold of the prey;
They will carry it away safely,
And no one will deliver.
30 In that day they will roar against them
Like the roaring of the sea.
And if one (G)looks to the land,
Behold, darkness and [b]sorrow;
And the light is darkened by the clouds.

That the Lord (A)will whistle for the fly
That is in the farthest part of the rivers of Egypt,
And for the bee that is in the land of Assyria.
19 They will come, and all of them will rest
In the desolate valleys and in (B)the clefts of the rocks,
And on all thorns and in all pastures.

20 In the same day the Lord will shave with a (C)hired (D)razor,
With those from beyond [a]the River, with the king of Assyria,
The head and the hair of the legs,
And will also remove the beard.

15 Behold, I will bring a (A)nation against you (B)from afar,
O house of Israel,” says the Lord.

It is an ancient nation,
A nation whose language you do not know,
Nor can you understand what they say.
