And he will be our peace(A)
    when the Assyrians invade(B) our land
    and march through our fortresses.
We will raise against them seven shepherds,
    even eight commanders,(C)
who will rule[a] the land of Assyria with the sword,
    the land of Nimrod(D) with drawn sword.[b](E)
He will deliver us from the Assyrians
    when they invade our land
    and march across our borders.(F)

The remnant(G) of Jacob will be
    in the midst of many peoples
like dew(H) from the Lord,
    like showers on the grass,(I)
which do not wait for anyone
    or depend on man.
