24 Therefore thus saith YHWH, the GOD of hosts: O My people that dwellest in Zion, be not afraid of Asshur, though he smite thee with the rod, and lift up his staff against thee, after the manner of Egypt.
24 For this reason, the Lord, the God of hosts, says this: “My people, who inhabit Zion: do not be afraid of Assur. He will strike you with his rod, and he will lift up his staff over you, on the way of Egypt.
25 For yet a very little while, and the indignation shall be accomplished, and Mine anger shall be to their destruction.
25 For yet a little while, and the indignation shall cease: but my wrath shall be against their council.
25 But after a little while and a brief time, my indignation will be consumed, and my fury will turn to their wickedness.”
26 And YHWH of hosts shall stir up against him a scourge, as in the slaughter of Midian at the Rock of Oreb; and as His rod was over the sea, so shall He lift it up after the manner of Egypt.
26 And God will stir up enemies against them, according to the stroke of Madiam in the place of affliction: and his wrath shall be by the way of the sea, even to the way that leads to Egypt.
26 And the Lord of hosts will raise up a scourge over him, like the scourge of Midian at the rock of Oreb, and he will raise up his rod over the sea, and he will lift it up against the way of Egypt.
27 And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall depart from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed by reason of fatness.
27 And this shall be in that day: his burden will be taken away from your shoulder, and his yoke will be taken away from your neck, and the yoke will decay at the appearance of the oil.
28 He is come to Aiath, he is passed through Migron; at Michmas he layeth up his baggage;
28 For he shall arrive at the city of Angai, and shall pass on to Maggedo, and shall lay up his stores in Machmas.
28 He will approach Aiath; he will cross into Migron; he will entrust his vessels to Michmash.
29 They are gone over the pass; they have taken up their lodging at Geba; Ramah trembleth; Gibeath-shaul is fled.
29 And he shall pass by the valley, and shall arrive at Angai: fear shall seize upon Rama, the city of Saul.
29 They have passed through in haste; Geba is our seat; Ramah was stupefied; Gibeah of Saul fled.
30 Cry thou with a shrill voice, O daughter of Gallim! Hearken, O Laish! O thou poor Anathoth!
30 The daughter of Gallim shall flee; Laisa shall hear; one shall hear in Anathoth.
30 Neigh with your voice, daughter of Gallim; pay attention, Laishah, impoverished woman of Anathoth.
31 Madmenah is in mad flight; the inhabitants of Gebim flee to cover.
31 Madebena also is amazed, and the inhabitants of Gibbir.
31 Madmenah has moved away; be strengthened, you inhabitants of Gebim.
32 This very day shall he halt at Nob, shaking his hand at the mount of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem.
32 Exhort ye them to-day to remain in the way: exhort ye beckoning with the hand the mountain, the daughter of Sion, even ye hills that are in Jerusalem.
32 As yet he shall remain at Nob that day; he shall shake his hand against the mount of the daughter of Zion and against the hill of Jerusalem.
33 Behold, YHWH, YHWH of hosts, shall lop the boughs with terror; and the high ones of stature shall be hewn down, and the lofty shall be laid low.
33 Behold, the sovereign Lord of hosts will crush the little bottle of wine with terror, and the exalted in stature will be cut down, and the lofty will be brought low.
34 And He shall cut down the thickets of the forest with iron, and Lebanon shall fall by a mighty one.
34 and the lofty ones shall fall by the sword, and the Libanus shall fall with his lofty ones.
34 And the dense forest will be overturned with iron. And Lebanon, with its exalted ones, will fall.
