As for thee also, because of the blood of thy covenant I send forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
Return to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope; even to-day do I declare that I will render double unto thee.
For I bend Judah for Me, I fill the bow with Ephraim; and I will stir up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Javan, and will make thee as the sword of a mighty man.
And HaShem shall be seen over them, and His arrow shall go forth as the lightning; and the L-rd GOD will blow the horn, and will go with whirlwinds of the south.
HaShem of hosts will defend them; and they shall devour, and shall tread down the sling-stones; and they shall drink, and make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like the basins, like the corners of the altar.
And HaShem their G-d shall save them in that day as the flock of His people; for they shall be as the stones of a crown, glittering over His land.
For how great is their goodness, and how great is their beauty! Corn shall make the young men flourish, and new wine the maids.
