1 Ask the Lord for rain
In the time of the [a]latter rain.
The Lord will make [b]flashing clouds;
He will give them showers of rain,
Grass in the field for everyone.
The diviners envision lies,
And tell false dreams;
They comfort in vain.
Therefore the people wend their way like sheep;
They are [d]in trouble because there is no shepherd.
And I will punish the [e]goatherds.
For the Lord of hosts will visit His flock,
The house of Judah,
And will make them as His royal horse in the battle.
From him the tent peg,
From him the battle bow,
From him every [f]ruler together.
Who tread down their enemies
In the mire of the streets in the battle.
They shall fight because the Lord is with them,
And the riders on horses shall be put to shame.
And I will save the house of Joseph.
I will bring them back,
Because I have mercy on them.
They shall be as though I had not cast them aside;
For I am the Lord their God,
And I will hear them.
And their heart shall rejoice as if with wine.
Yes, their children shall see it and be glad;
Their heart shall rejoice in the Lord.
For I will redeem them;
And they shall increase as they once increased.
And they shall remember Me in far countries;
They shall live, together with their children,
And they shall return.
And gather them from Assyria.
I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon,
Until no more room is found for them.
And strike the waves of the sea:
All the depths of [h]the River shall dry up.
Then the pride of Assyria shall be brought down,
And the scepter of Egypt shall depart.
And they shall walk up and down in His name,”
Says the Lord.
