Yahweh Will Redeem Judah and Israel

10 Ask (A)rain from Yahweh at the time of the [a]late rain—
Yahweh who (B)makes the [b]storm clouds;
And He will give them (C)showers of rain, the plant in the field to each man.
For the (D)teraphim speak wickedness,
And the (E)diviners behold [c]false visions
And speak (F)worthless dreams;
They comfort in vain.
Therefore the people journey like (G)sheep;
They are afflicted because there is no shepherd.
“My (H)anger burns against the shepherds,
And I will visit punishment upon the [d]male goats;
For Yahweh of hosts has (I)visited His flock, the house of Judah,
And will make them like His splendid horse in battle.
From [e]them will come the (J)cornerstone,
From [f]them the tent peg,
From [g]them the bow of [h](K)battle,
From [i]them every good [j]taskmaster, all of them together.
And they will be as mighty men,
(L)Treading down the enemy in the mire of the streets in battle;
And they will battle, for Yahweh will be with them;
And the (M)riders on horses will be put to shame.
I will (N)make the house of Judah mighty,
And I will (O)save the house of Joseph,
And I will [k](P)cause them to return,
Because I have had (Q)compassion on them;
And they will be as though I had (R)not rejected them,
For I am Yahweh their God, and I will (S)answer them.
And Ephraim will be like a mighty man,
And their heart will be glad as if from wine;
Indeed, their (T)children will see it and be glad;
[l]Their heart will rejoice in Yahweh.
I will (U)whistle for them to gather them together,
For I have redeemed them;
And they will be as (V)numerous as they (W)were [m]before.
And I will sow them among the peoples,
And they will (X)remember Me in far countries,
And they with their children will live and turn back.
10 Then I will cause them to (Y)return from the land of Egypt
And gather them from Assyria;
And I will bring them into the land of (Z)Gilead and Lebanon
[n]Until (AA)no room can be found for them.
11 And [o]they will pass through the (AB)sea of distress,
And He will strike the waves in the sea,
So that all the depths of the (AC)Nile will dry up;
And the pride of (AD)Assyria will be brought down,
And the scepter of (AE)Egypt will depart.
12 And I will (AF)make them mighty in Yahweh,
And in His name (AG)they will walk,” declares Yahweh.
