For look!

What [are] you to me, Tyre and Sidon, and all of the regions of Philistia? Are you repaying to me what is deserved?

And the sons of Judah and Jerusalem you sold to the sons of the Greeks, in order to remove them from their border. Look! I [am] rousing them from the place where you have sold them, and I will return what you deserve on your head!

Proclaim this among the nations: {Prepare for war}! Stir up the mighty warriors; let them approach and come up; [let] all the men of war approach. Beat your cutting tools of iron into swords and your pruning hooks into spears; let the weakling say, 'I am a mighty warrior!' Hurry and come, all the nations, from all around, and gather [yourselves] there. Bring down your mighty warriors, O Yahweh! Let the nations be roused and let them come up to the valley of Jehoshaphat, for there I will sit to judge all the nations from all around. Send forth [the] sickle, for the harvest is ripe! Go tread, for [the] winepress is full! The vats overflow, because their evil [is] great! Commotion, commotion in the valley of decision! For the day of Yahweh [is] near in the valley of decision!

And [so] then in that day, on the day of the coming of God against the land of Israel,' {declares} the Lord Yahweh, 'my rage will come up in my anger. And in my passion, [in] the fire of my wrath, I spoke [that] {certainly} on that day great earthquake will be on the land of Israel. And the fish of the sea and the birds of the heaven and the animals of the field and all of the creeping things that creep on the earth and all of the humans who [are] on the surface of the earth will shake {at my presence}; and the mountains will be demolished, and the steep mountain sides will fall, and every wall on the earth will fall.

"?"And the inhabitants of the towns of Israel will go out, and they will set ablaze, and they will kindle a fire with a weapon and a small shield and a shield, [with] a bow and with arrows, and with {hand clubs} and with spears, and [so] they will light a fire with them, {a fire lasting seven years}. And they will not carry trees from the field, and they will not chop wood from the forests, for with the weapons they will light a fire; and they will plunder [those] plundering them, and they will plunder [those] plundering them," ' {declares} the Lord Yahweh.

And every island fled, and mountains were not found. And large hailstones, weighing about a hundred pounds, came down from the sky upon people, and the people blasphemed God because of the plague of hail, because the plague of it was very great.
