Zechariah 12:9; Micah 4:11–13

oAnd on that day yI will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.


11  Now imany nations

are assembled against you,

saying, Let her be defiled,

and jlet our eyes gaze upon Zion.

12  But kthey do not know

the thoughts of the Lord;

they do not understand his plan,

that lhe has gathered them as sheaves to the threshing floor.

13  Arise and thresh,

O daughter of Zion,

for I will make your horn iron,

and I will make your hoofs bronze;

you shall beat in pieces many peoples;

and mshall devote1 ntheir gain to the Lord,

their wealth to othe Lord of the whole earth.
