4 He will stand and shepherd his flock
in the strength of the Lord,
in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.
And they will live securely, for then his greatness
will reach to the ends of the earth.
5 And he will be our peace
when the Assyrians invade our land
and march through our fortresses.
We will raise against them seven shepherds,
even eight commanders,
6 who will rulec] the land of Assyria with the sword,
the land of Nimrod with drawn sword.d]
He will deliver us from the Assyrians
when they invade our land
and march across our borders.
