And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off your shoulder, and his yoke from off your neck…
(vers. 28-34): — The description here given, when looked at aesthetically, is one of the most picturesque and magnificent representations that human poetry has ever produced. "He comes upon Ayyath, marches through Migron, in Michmash he leaves his baggage. They march right across the ravine; — let Geba be our night quarters! Ramah trembles; Gibeah of Saul flees; scream loud, O daughter of Gallim! O only listen, Laysha! Poor Anathoth! Hurries Madmena, the inhabitants of Gebim rescue. Today he still makes a halt in Nob, — swings his hand over the mountain of the daughter of Zion, the hill of Jerusalem. Behold, the All-Lord, Jehovah of hosts, lops down the branches with terrible force, and those of towering growth are hewn down, and the lofty are laid low. And He fells the thickets of the forest with the iron; and Lebanon, by a majestic One it falls."
Parallel VersesKJV: And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
