“¶ Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, & let our eye look vpon Zion.”
King James Version (KJV)
8. ¶ And thou, O towre of the flock, the strong hold of the daughter of Zion, vnto thee shall it come, euen the first dominion, the kingdome shall come to the daughter of Ierusalem. 9. Now why doest thou cry out alowd? is there no king in thee? is thy counseller perished? for pangs haue taken thee, as a woman in trauell. 10. Bee in paine and labour to bring forth, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in trauell: for now shalt thou goe foorth out of the citie, and thou shalt dwel in the field, and thou shalt go euen to Babylon: there shalt thou be deliuered: there the Lord shall redeeme thee from the hand of thine enemies. 11. ¶ Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say, Let her be defiled, & let our eye look vpon Zion. 12. But they know not the thoughts of the Lord, neither vnderstand they his counsell: for hee shall gather them as the sheaues into the floore. 13. Arise and thresh, O daughter of Zion: for I will make thine horne yron, & I will make thy hooues brasse, and thou shalt beat in pieces many people: and I will consecrate their gaine vnto the Lord, and their substance vnto the Lord of the whole earth.
