The New Order of Things *

1Ask of the LORDrain in the spring season! It is the LORD who makes the storm clouds, And sends men the pouring rain; for everyone, grassy fields. m Dt 11, 14; Jer 14, 22 . 2For the teraphim speak nonsense, the diviners have false visions: Deceitful dreams they tell, empty comfort they offer. This is why they wander like sheep, wretched: they have no shepherd. n Jer 10, 8; Ez 34, 5 . 3My wrath is kindled against the shepherds, and I will punish the leaders; For the LORD of hosts will visit his flock, the house of Judah, and make them his stately war horse.

4From him shall come leader and chief, from him warrior's bow and every officer. 5They shall all be warriors, trampling the mire of the streets in battle; They shall wage war because the LORD is with them, and shall put the horsemen to rout. 6I will strengthen the house of Judah, the house of Joseph I will save; I will bring them back, because I have mercy on them, they shall be as though I had never cast them off, for I am the LORD, their God, and I will hear them. 7Then Ephraim shall be valiant men, and their hearts shall be cheered as by wine. Their children shall see it and be glad, their hearts shall rejoice in the LORD.

8I will whistle for them to come together, and when I redeem them they will be as numerous as before. o Ez 36, 37 . 9I sowed them among the nations, yet in distant lands they remember me; they shall rear their children and return. 10I will bring them back from the land of Egypt, and gather them from Assyria. I will bring them into Gilead and into Lebanon, but these shall not suffice them; p Is 11, 11; 49, 20; Hos 11, 11 . 11I will cross over to Egypt and smite the waves of the sea and all the depths of the Nile shall be dried up. The pride of Assyria shall be cast down, and the scepter of Egypt taken away. q Is 11, 15; Ez 30, 13 . 12I will strengthen them in the LORD, and they shall walk in his name, says the LORD. r Mi 4, 5 .
