Future Deliverance for Jerusalem

12This message concerning the fate of Israel came from the Lord: “This message is from the Lord, who stretched out the heavens, laid the foundations of the earth, and formed the human spirit.H4853H1697H3068H3478H5002H3068H5186H8064H3245H776H3335H7307H120H7130 2I will make Jerusalem like an intoxicating drink that makes the nearby nations stagger when they send their armies to besiege Jerusalem and Judah.H7760H3389H5592H7478H5971H5439H4692H3063H3389 3On that day I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock. All the nations will gather against it to try to move it, but they will only hurt themselves.H3117H7760H3389H4614H68H5971H6006H8295H8295H1471H776H622 4“On that day,” says the Lord, “I will cause every horse to panic and every rider to lose his nerve. I will watch over the people of Judah, but I will blind all the horses of their enemies.H3117H5002H3068H5221H5483H8541H7392H7697H6491H5869H1004H3063H5221H5483H5971H5788 5And the clans of Judah will say to themselves, ‘The people of Jerusalem have found strength in the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, their God.’H441H3063H559H3820H3427H3389H556H3068H6635H430 6“On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a flame that sets a woodpile ablaze or like a burning torch among sheaves of grain. They will burn up all the neighboring nations right and left, while the people living in Jerusalem remain secure.H3117H7760H441H3063H3595H784H6086H3940H784H5995H398H5971H5439H3225H8040H3389H3427H3389 7“The Lord will give victory to the rest of Judah first, before Jerusalem, so that the people of Jerusalem and the royal line of David will not have greater honor than the rest of Judah.H3068H3467H168H3063H7223H8597H1004H1732H8597H3427H3389H1431H3063 8On that day the Lord will defend the people of Jerusalem; the weakest among them will be as mighty as King David! And the royal descendants will be like God, like the angel of the Lord who goes before them!H3117H3068H1598H3427H3389H3782H3117H1732H1004H1732H430H4397H3068H6440 9For on that day I will begin to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.H3117H1245H8045H1471H935H3389 10“Then I will pour out a spirit of grace and prayer on the family of David and on the people of Jerusalem. They will look on me whom they have pierced and mourn for him as for an only son. They will grieve bitterly for him as for a firstborn son who has died.H8210H1004H1732H3427H3389H7307H2580H8469H5027H1856H4553H5594H3173H4843H4843H1060 11The sorrow and mourning in Jerusalem on that day will be like the great mourning for Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddo.H3117H1431H4553H3389H4553H1910H1237H4023 12“All Israel will mourn, each clan by itself, and with the husbands separate from their wives. The clan of David will mourn alone, as will the clan of Nathan,H776H5594H4940H4940H905H4940H1004H1732H802H4940H1004H5416H802 13the clan of Levi, and the clan of Shimei.H4940H1004H3878H802H4940H8097H802 14Each of the surviving clans from Judah will mourn separately, and with the husbands separate from their wives.H4940H7604H4940H802
