11 Now also are there many people gathered together against thee, saying that Zion is cursed: "We shall see our lust upon her." 12 But they know not the thoughts of the LORD; they understand not his counsel, that shall gather them together as the sheaves in the barn. 13 Therefore get thee up, O thou daughter Zion, and thresh out the corn. For I will make thy horn iron. and thy claws brass, that thou mayest grind many people: their goods shalt thou appropriate unto the LORD, and their substance unto the ruler of the whole world.
