speedily to pray before the Lord, and
to seek the Lord of hosts: I will go
22 Yea, many people and strong
nations shall come to seek the Lord
of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray
before the Lord.
23 Thus saith the Lord of hosts; In
those days it shall come to pass,
that ten men shall take hold out of
all languages of the nations, even
shall take hold of the skirt of him
that is a Jew, saying, We will go
with you: for we have heard that God
is with you.
