He will offer peace to the nations, a peaceful rule worldwide, from the four winds to the seven seas. 11 “And you, because of my blood covenant with you, I’ll release your prisoners from their hopeless cells. 12 Come home, hope-filled prisoners! This very day I’m declaring a double bonus – everything you lost returned twice-over! 13 Judah is now my weapon, the bow I’ll pull, setting Ephraim as an arrow to the string. I’ll wake up your sons, O Zion, to counter your sons, O Greece. From now on people are my swords.” 14 Then God will come into view, his arrows flashing like lightning! Master God will blast his trumpet and set out in a whirlwind. 15 God-of-the-Angel-Armies will protect them – all-out war, The war to end all wars, no holds barred. 16 Their God will save the day. He’ll rescue them. They’ll become like sheep, gentle and soft, Or like gemstones in a crown, catching all the colors of the sun. 17 Then how they’ll shine! shimmer! glow! the young men robust, the young women lovely!
