and he shall utter his voice out of Zion, and he  shall speak from Jerusalem, and his voice shall be  heard among all people, and it shall be a voice as  the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great  thunder which shall break down the mountains,  and the vallies shall not be found: he shall command  the great deep and it shall be driven back into the  north countries, and the islands shall become one  land, and the land of Jerusalem and the land  of Zion shall be turned back into their own place,  and the earth shall be like as it was in the days  before it was divided, And the Lord even the  Savior shall stand in the midst of his people,  and shall reign over all flesh. And they who  are in the north countries shall come in remem brance before the Lord, and their prophets shall  hear his voice, and shall no longer stay themselves,  and they shall smite the rocks, and the ice shall  flow down at their presence. And an highway shall  be cast up in the midst of the great deep. Their  enemies shall become a prey unto them, and in  the barren deserts there shall come forth pools of  living water: and the parched ground shall no longer  be a thirsty land. And they shall bring forth their  rich treasures unto the children of Ephraim my  Servants. And the boundaries of the everlasting  hills shall tremble at their presence. And then shall  they fall down and be crowned with glory, even  in Zion, by the hands of the servants of the Lord, even  the children of Ephraim; and they shall be filled  with songs of everlasting joy. Behold this is the  blessing of the everlasting God upon the tribes of  Israel, and the richer blessing upon the head of  Ephraim and his fellows. And they also of the  tribe of Judah, after their pain, shall be sancti fied in holiness before the Lord to dwell in his  presence day and night forever and ever
4 And now verily saith the Lord, that these  things might be known among you. O inhabitants [p. 168]
