Raise your voice, Daughter Jerusalem!Your king is coming! a good king who makes all things right, a humble king riding a donkey, a mere colt of a donkey.I’ve had it with war—no more chariots in Ephraim, no more war horses in Jerusalem, no more swords and spears, bows and arrows.He will offer peace to the nations, a peaceful rule worldwide, from the four winds to the seven seas.“And you, because of my blood covenant with you, I’ll release your prisoners from their hopeless cells.Come home, hope-filled prisoners! This very day I’m declaring a double bonus— everything you lost returned twice-over!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.” Then God will come into view, his arrows flashing like lightning!Master God will blast his trumpet and set out in a whirlwind.God-of-the-Angel-Armies will protect them— all-out war,The war to end all wars, no holds barred.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.Then how they’ll shine! shimmer! glow! the young men robust, the young women lovely!
