International Children’s Bible
12 But they don’t know
what the Lord is thinking.
They don’t understand his plan for them.
He will crush them like a bundle of grain on the threshing floor.
13 “Get up and crush them, people of Jerusalem.
I will make you strong as if you had horns of iron.
I will make you strong as if you had hooves of bronze.
You will beat many nations into small pieces.
You will give their wealth to the Lord.
You will give their treasure to the Lord of all the earth.”
New International Version
12 But they do not know
the thoughts of the Lord;
they do not understand his plan,(A)
that he has gathered them like sheaves to the threshing floor.
13 “Rise and thresh,(B) Daughter Zion,
for I will give you horns of iron;
I will give you hooves of bronze,
and you will break to pieces many nations.”(C)
You will devote their ill-gotten gains to the Lord,(D)
their wealth to the Lord of all the earth.
