For thus said the Lord of hosts, after his glory sent me[a] to the nations who plundered you, (A)for he who touches you touches (B)the apple of his eye: “Behold, (C)I will shake my hand over them, (D)and they shall become plunder for those who served them. Then (E)you will know that the Lord of hosts has sent me. 10 (F)Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion, for (G)behold, I come (H)and I will dwell in your midst, declares the Lord. 11 (I)And many nations shall join themselves to the Lord in that day, and shall be my people. (J)And I will dwell in your midst, and (K)you shall know that the Lord of hosts has sent me to you. 12 (L)And the Lord will inherit Judah as his portion in the holy land, and will again (M)choose Jerusalem.”

13 Be silent, all flesh, before the Lord, for he has roused himself from his holy dwelling.
