11     On that day,
The Lord shall again take it in hand
    to reclaim the remnant of his people
    that is left from Assyria and Egypt,
Pathros, Ethiopia, and Elam,
    Shinar, Hamath, and the isles of the sea.(A)
12 He shall raise a signal to the nations(B)
    and gather the outcasts of Israel;
The dispersed of Judah he shall assemble
    from the four corners of the earth.
13 The envy of Ephraim shall pass away,
    and those hostile to Judah shall be cut off;
Ephraim shall not envy Judah,
    and Judah shall not be hostile to Ephraim;
14 But they shall swoop down on the foothills
    of the Philistines to the west,
    together they shall plunder the people of the east;[a]
Edom and Moab shall be their possessions,
    and the Ammonites their subjects.
15 The Lord shall dry up the tongue[b] of the Sea of Egypt,
    and wave his hand over the Euphrates with his fierce wind,
And divide it into seven streamlets,
    so that it can be crossed in sandals.(C)
16 There shall be a highway for the remnant of his people
    that is left from Assyria,
As there was for Israel
    when it came up from the land of Egypt.(D)
