A (3) Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for Yahweh of hosts hath visited his flock THE HOUSE OF JUDAH,
B (3) and hath made them as his goodly HORSE
C (3) IN THE BATTLE.
D (4) Out of him came forth the corner, out of him the nail, out of him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together.
C1 (5) And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets IN THE BATTLE:
B1 (5) and they shall fight, because Yahweh is with them, and the riders ON HORSES shall be confounded.
A1 (6) And I will strengthen THE HOUSE OF JUDAH, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am Yahweh their God, and will hear them.
