16 Moreover, the Lord said, “Because the daughters of Zion are proud And walk with [a]heads held high and seductive eyes, And go along with mincing steps And tinkle the bangles on their feet, 17 Therefore the Lord will afflict the scalp of the daughters of Zion with scabs, And the Lord will make their foreheads bare.”
18 In that day the Lord will take away the beauty of their anklets, headbands, crescent ornaments,19 dangling earrings, bracelets, veils,20 headdresses, ankle chains, sashes, perfume boxes, amulets,21 [b]finger rings, nose rings,22 festal robes, outer tunics, cloaks, money purses,23 hand mirrors, undergarments, turbans and veils.
24 Now it will come about that instead of [c]sweet perfume there will be putrefaction; Instead of a belt, a rope; Instead of well-set hair, a plucked-out scalp; Instead of fine clothes, a donning of sackcloth; And branding instead of beauty. 25 Your men will fall by the sword And your [d]mighty ones in battle. 26 And her [e]gates will lament and mourn, And deserted she will sit on the ground.
A Remnant Prepared
4 For seven women will take hold of one man in that day, saying, “We will eat our own bread and wear our own clothes, only let us be called by your name; take away our reproach!”
2 In that day the Branch of the Lord will be beautiful and glorious, and the fruit of the earth will be the pride and the adornment of the survivors of Israel.3 It will come about that he who is left in Zion and remains in Jerusalem will be called holy—everyone who is recorded for life in Jerusalem.4 When the Lord has washed away the filth of the daughters of Zion and [f]purged the bloodshed of Jerusalem from her midst, by the spirit of judgment and the spirit of burning,5 then the Lord will create over the whole area of Mount Zion and over her assemblies a cloud by day, even smoke, and the brightness of a flaming fire by night; for over all the glory will be a canopy.6 There will be a shelter to give shade from the heat by day, and refuge and [g]protection from the storm and the rain.
