(A)Alas! For that day is great,
(B)So that none is like it;
And it is the time of Jacob’s trouble,
But he shall be saved out of it.

‘For it shall come to pass in that day,’
Says the Lord of hosts,
That I will break his yoke from your neck,
And will burst your bonds;
Foreigners shall no more enslave them.
But they shall serve the Lord their God,
And (C)David their king,
Whom I will (D)raise up for them.

10 ‘Therefore (E)do not fear, O My servant Jacob,’ says the Lord,
‘Nor be dismayed, O Israel;
For behold, I will save you from afar,
And your seed (F)from the land of their captivity.
Jacob shall return, have rest and be quiet,
And no one shall make him afraid.
11 For I am with (G)you,’ says the Lord, ‘to save you;
(H)Though I make a full end of all nations where I have scattered you,
(I)Yet I will not make a complete end of you.
But I will correct you (J)in justice,
And will not let you go altogether unpunished.’
