12 But they do not know the thoughts of the Lord,
    nor understand his plan:
He has gathered them
    like sheaves to the threshing floor.
13 Arise and thresh, O daughter Zion;
    your horn I will make iron
And your hoofs I will make bronze,
    that you may crush many peoples;
You shall devote their spoils to the Lord,[a]
    their riches to the Lord of the whole earth.(A)
