Chapter 10

10:1 Ask ye of the Lord rain in the time of the latter rain, even of the Lord that maketh lightnings; and He will give them showers of rain, to every one grass in the field.

10:2 For the teraphim have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie, and the dreams speak falsely, they comfort in vain; therefore they go their way like sheep, they are afflicted, because there is no shepherd.

10:3 Mine anger is kindled against the shepherds, and I will punish the he-goats; for the Lord of hosts hath remembered His flock the house of Judah, and maketh them as His majestic horse in the battle.

10:4 Out of them shall come forth the corner-stone, out of them the stake, out of them the battle bow, out of them every master together.

10:5 And they shall be as mighty men, treading down in the mire of the streets in the battle, and they shall fight, because the Lord is with them; and the riders on horses shall be confounded.

10:6 And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them back, for I have compassion upon them, and they shall be as though I had not cast them off; for I am the Lord their God, and I will hear them.

10:7 And they of Ephraim shall be like a mighty man, and their heart shall rejoice as through wine; yea, their children shall see it, and rejoice, their heart shall be glad in the Lord.

10:8 I will hiss for them, and gather them, for I have redeemed them; and they shall increase as they have increased.

10:9 And I will sow them among the peoples, and they shall remember Me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and shall return.

10:10 I will bring them back also out of the land of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; and place shall not suffice them.

10:11 And over the sea affliction shall pass, and the waves shall be smitten in the sea, and all the depths of the Nile shall dry up; and the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the sceptre of Egypt shall depart away.

10:12 And I will strengthen them in the Lord; and they shall walk up and down in His name, saith the Lord.
