The Book of Zechariah
Zec 1:1 In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, the Word of Jehovah came to Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,
Zec 1:2 Jehovah has been very angry with your fathers.
Zec 1:3 And you say to them, So says Jehovah of Hosts: Turn to Me, says Jehovah of Hosts, and I will turn to you, says Jehovah of Hosts.
Zec 1:4 Be not as your fathers, to whom the former prophets have proclaimed to them, saying, So says Jehovah of Hosts: Turn now from your evil ways and your evil doings. But they did not hear nor listen to Me, says Jehovah.
Zec 1:5 Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever?
Zec 1:6 But My Words and My statutes which I commanded My servants the prophets, did they not overtake your fathers? And they returned and said, As Jehovah of Hosts planned to do to us, according to our ways and according to our doings, so He has done with us.
Zec 1:7 On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, it is the month Shebat, in the second year of Darius, the Word of Jehovah came to Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,
Zec 1:8 I watched by night. And behold! a Man riding on a red horse, and He stood among the myrtle trees in the ravine. And behind Him were red, sorrel and white horses.
Zec 1:9 Then I said, O my lord, what are these? And the angel who talked with me said to me, I will show you what these are.
Zec 1:10 And the Man who stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These are those whom Jehovah has sent to walk to and fro through the earth.
Zec 1:11 And they answered the Angel of Jehovah who stood among the myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and behold, all the earth sits still and is at peace.
Zec 1:12 Then the Angel of Jehovah answered and said, O Jehovah of Hosts, how long will You not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah against which You have cursed these seventy years?
Zec 1:13 And Jehovah answered the angel who talked with me with good words, comfortable words.
Zec 1:14 So the angel who talked with me said to me, Cry out, saying, So says Jehovah of Hosts: I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.
Zec 1:15 And with great anger I am angry at the nations at ease; in that I was but a little angry, and they gave help for evil.
Zec 1:16 Therefore so says Jehovah: I have returned to Jerusalem with mercies. My house shall be built in it, says Jehovah of Hosts. And a line shall be stretched over Jerusalem.
Zec 1:17 Cry out again, saying, So says Jehovah of Hosts: My cities shall yet be spread abroad through good, and Jehovah shall again overflow with goodness, and Jehovah shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.
Zec 1:18 Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, four horns!
Zec 1:19 And I said to the angel who talked with me, What are these? And he answered me, These are the horns that have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
Zec 1:20 And Jehovah showed me four craftsmen.
Zec 1:21 And I said, What are these coming to do? And He spoke, saying, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man lifted up his head. But these have come to terrify them, to throw down the horns of the nations who lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
Zec 2:1 I lifted up my eyes again and looked, and behold! A man with a measuring line in his hand.
Zec 2:2 Then I said, Where are you going? And he said to me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is its breadth and what is its length.
Zec 2:3 And behold, the angel who talked with me went out, and another angel went out to meet him.
Zec 2:4 And he said to him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited, as towns without walls for the multitude of men and cattle in her midst.
Zec 2:5 And I, says Jehovah, will be to her a wall of fire all around, and will be the glory in her midst.
Zec 2:6 Ho! Ho! Flee then from the land of the north, says Jehovah. For I have scattered you as the four winds of the heavens, says Jehovah.
Zec 2:7 Ho! O Zion, escape, you who live with the daughter of Babylon.
Zec 2:8 For so says Jehovah of Hosts: He has sent me after glory, to the nations who stripped you; for he who touches you touches the pupil of His eye.
Zec 2:9 For behold, I will shake My hand over them, and they shall be a prize for their servants. And you shall know that Jehovah of Hosts has sent me.
Zec 2:10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion. For lo, I come, and I will dwell in your midst, says Jehovah.
Zec 2:11 And many nations shall be joined to Jehovah in that day, and shall be My people; and I will dwell in your midst, and you shall know that Jehovah of Hosts has sent me to you.
Zec 2:12 And Jehovah shall possess Judah, His portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.
Zec 2:13 Be silent, all flesh, before Jehovah; for He has risen out of His holy dwelling place.
Zec 3:1 And He showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of Jehovah, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him.
Zec 3:2 And Jehovah said to Satan, May Jehovah rebuke you, Satan! May even Jehovah who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked out of the fire?
Zec 3:3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy clothes, and stood before the Angel.
Zec 3:4 And He answered and spoke to those who stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy clothes from him. And to him He said, Behold, I have caused your iniquity to pass from you, and I will clothe you with ceremonial robes.
Zec 3:5 And I said, Let them set a clean turban on his head. And they set a clean turban on his head and clothed him with garments. And the Angel of Jehovah stood by.
Zec 3:6 And the Angel of Jehovah charged Joshua, saying,
Zec 3:7 So says Jehovah of Hosts: If you will walk in My ways, and if you will keep My charge, then you shall also judge My house, and shall also keep My courts, and I will give you places to walk among these who stand by.
Zec 3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, you and your fellows who sit before you; for they are men of symbol.
Zec 3:9 For behold! I will bring forth My Servant the Branch. For behold the stone that I have set before Joshua: On one stone are seven eyes. Behold, I will engrave its engraving, says Jehovah of Hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
Zec 3:10 In that day, says Jehovah of Hosts, you shall call, each man to his neighbor, to sit under the vine and under the fig tree.
Zec 4:1 And the angel that talked with me came again and awakened me, as a man that is awakened out of his sleep.
Zec 4:2 And he said to me, What do you see? And I said, I see, and behold, a lampstand, all of it gold, and a bowl on its top, and its seven lamps on it, and seven pipes to the seven lamps on its top;
Zec 4:3 and two olive trees beside it, one on the right of the bowl, and the other on the left of it.
Zec 4:4 And I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?
Zec 4:5 Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, Do you know what these are? And I said, No, my lord.
Zec 4:6 Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, This is the Word of Jehovah to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says Jehovah of Hosts.
Zec 4:7 Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain; and he shall bring forth the top stone with shoutings, Grace! Grace to it!
Zec 4:8 And the Word of Jehovah came to me, saying,
Zec 4:9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house. His hands shall also finish it; and you shall know that Jehovah of Hosts has sent me to you.
Zec 4:10 For who has despised the day of small things? For they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel. These seven are the eyes of Jehovah which run to and fro through the whole earth.
Zec 4:11 And I answered and said to him, What are these two olive trees on the right of the lampstand and on its left?
Zec 4:12 And I answered again and said to him, What are the two olive clusters beside the two golden pipes, emptying the golden oil from themselves?
Zec 4:13 And he answered me and said, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, my lord.
Zec 4:14 And he said, These are the two sons of fresh oil who stand by Jehovah of the whole earth.
Zec 5:1 And I again lifted up my eyes and looked. And behold! A flying scroll.
Zec 5:2 And he said to me, What do you see? And I answered, I see a flying scroll; its length is twenty cubits, and its width ten cubits.
Zec 5:3 And he said to me, This is the curse that goes forth over the face of the whole earth; for from now on everyone who steals shall be cut off according to it; and everyone who swears from now on shall be cut off according to it.
Zec 5:4 I will bring it forth, says Jehovah of Hosts; and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him who swears falsely by My name. And it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall devour it, and its timber and its stones.
Zec 5:5 Then the angel who talked with me went forth and said to me, Now lift up your eyes and see what this is that goes forth.
Zec 5:6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is the ephah that goes forth. And he said, This is their form in all the earth.
Zec 5:7 And behold, a lead cover was lifted up, and a woman was sitting in the middle of the ephah.
Zec 5:8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah. And he cast the lead stone over its opening.
Zec 5:9 And I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, two women came out. And the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork. And they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heavens.
Zec 5:10 And I said to the angel who talked with me, Where are they going with the ephah?
Zec 5:11 And he said to me, To build a house for it in the land of Shinar; and it shall be established and set there on its own base.
Zec 6:1 And I turned and lifted up my eyes and looked. And behold! Four chariots were coming from between two mountains. And the mountains were mountains of bronze.
Zec 6:2 Red horses were in the first chariot; and in the second chariot black horses;
Zec 6:3 and in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth chariot horses with dappled, strong colors.
Zec 6:4 And I answered and said to the angel who talked with me, What are these, my lord?
Zec 6:5 And the angel answered and said to me, These are the four spirits of the heavens who go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth.
Zec 6:6 The black horses in it go forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them; and the dappled go forth to a south country.
Zec 6:7 And the strong colored ones went forth and sought to go, so to walk to and fro through the earth. And he said, Go! Walk to and fro through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth.
Zec 6:8 And he cried to me and spoke to me, saying, Behold, these who go toward the north country have caused My Spirit to rest in the north country.
Zec 6:9 And the Word of Jehovah came to me saying,
Zec 6:10 Take from Heldai, Tobijah, and Jedaiah, from the exiles who have come from Babylon; and in that day you go and enter the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah.
Zec 6:11 And take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them on the head of Joshua the son of Jehozadak, the high priest.
Zec 6:12 And speak to him, saying, So speaks Jehovah of Hosts, saying, Behold the Man whose name is The BRANCH! And He shall spring up out of His place, and He shall build the temple of Jehovah.
Zec 6:13 Even He shall build the temple of Jehovah; and He shall bear the glory, and shall sit and rule on His throne. And He shall be a priest on His throne; and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
Zec 6:14 And the crowns shall be for a memorial in the temple of Jehovah to Helem and to Tobijah and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah.
Zec 6:15 And the distant ones shall come and build in the temple of Jehovah, and you shall know that Jehovah of Hosts has sent me to you. And this shall be, if you will carefully obey the voice of Jehovah your God.
Zec 7:1 And it happened in the fourth year of King Darius, the Word of Jehovah came to Zechariah in the fourth of the ninth month, in Chislev.
Zec 7:2 And Sherezer and Regem-melech and his men had been sent to the house of God, to seek the favor of Jehovah,
Zec 7:3 to speak to the priests who belong to the house of Jehovah of Hosts, and to the prophets, saying, Should I weep in the fifth month, consecrating myself, as I have done these many years?
Zec 7:4 And came the Word of Jehovah of Hosts to me, saying,
Zec 7:5 Speak to all the people of the land, and to the priests, saying, When you fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh months, even those seventy years, did you truly fast to Me, even to Me?
Zec 7:6 And when you ate, and when you drank, was it not for you the eaters, and for you, the drinkers?
Zec 7:7 Are not these the Words which Jehovah proclaimed by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited, and prosperous, and her cities all around her, and the Negev and the Shephelah were inhabited?
Zec 7:8 And the Word of Jehovah came to Zechariah, saying,
Zec 7:9 So speaks Jehovah of Hosts, saying, Judge true judgment, and practice kindness and pity, each man to his brother.
Zec 7:10 And do not crush the widow or the orphan, the alien or the poor. And do not devise evil in your heart, of a man against his brother.
Zec 7:11 But they refused to listen, and gave a stubborn shoulder, and made heavy their ears from hearing.
Zec 7:12 And they made their hearts adamant from hearing the Law and the Words which Jehovah of Hosts has sent through His Spirit, by the former prophets. And great wrath came from Jehovah of Hosts.
Zec 7:13 And it will be, as He called, and they did not listen, so they called, and I did not listen, says Jehovah of Hosts.
Zec 7:14 But I stormed them away on all the nations whom they did not know. And the land has been wasted behind them, from passing and from returning; for they made the land of desire a waste.
Zec 8:1 And the Word of Jehovah of Hosts came to me, saying,
Zec 8:2 So says Jehovah of Hosts: I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.
Zec 8:3 So says Jehovah: I have returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a City of Truth, and the mountain of Jehovah of Hosts, the Holy Mountain.
Zec 8:4 So says Jehovah of Hosts: There shall yet be old men and old women living in the streets of Jerusalem, and each man with his staff in his hand because of their many days.
Zec 8:5 And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in its streets.
Zec 8:6 So says Jehovah of Hosts: If it is marvelous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in those days, will it also be marvelous in My eyes, says Jehovah of Hosts?
Zec 8:7 So says Jehovah of Hosts: Behold, I will save My people from the east country, and from the land of the setting sun.
Zec 8:8 And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. And they shall be My people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.
Zec 8:9 So says Jehovah of Hosts: Let your hands be strong, you who hear in these days these Words by the mouth of the prophets, that in the day the house of Jehovah of Hosts is founded, the temple is to be built.
Zec 8:10 For before these days there was no payment for man, nor was there payment for animal; and there was no peace to him from the adversary who went out or came in. For I sent every man, a man against his neighbor.
Zec 8:11 But now I will not be to the remnant of this people as in the former days, says Jehovah of Hosts.
Zec 8:12 For the seed shall be blessed; the vine shall give its fruit, and the ground shall give its increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.
Zec 8:13 And it will be, as you were a curse among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you, and you shall be a blessing. Do not fear, but let your hands be strong.
Zec 8:14 For so says Jehovah of Hosts: As I thought to punish you when your fathers provoked Me to wrath, says Jehovah of Hosts, and I did not repent;
Zec 8:15 so again I have thought in these days to do well to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. Fear not.
Zec 8:16 These are the things that you shall do. Each man speak the truth to his neighbor. Judge with truth and justice for peace in your gates.
Zec 8:17 And let each devise no evil in your heart against his neighbor; and love no false oath. For all these are things that I hate, says Jehovah.
Zec 8:18 And the Word of Jehovah of Hosts came to me, saying,
Zec 8:19 So says Jehovah of Hosts: The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah for joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts. Therefore love truth and peace.
Zec 8:20 So says Jehovah of Hosts: There yet shall be peoples and inhabitants of many cities;
Zec 8:21 and the residents of one shall go to another, saying, Let us go at once to seek favor of the face of Jehovah, and to seek Jehovah of Hosts; I will go also.
Zec 8:22 And many peoples and strong nations shall come to seek Jehovah of Hosts in Jerusalem and to seek the favor of the face of Jehovah.
Zec 8:23 So says Jehovah of Hosts: In those days ten men, out of all languages of the nations, shall take hold, and will seize the skirt of a man, a Jew, saying, We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.
Zec 9:1 The burden of the Word of Jehovah against the land of Hadrach, and its resting-place, Damascus (when the eye of man, and all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward Jehovah);
Zec 9:2 and Hamath also borders on it; Tyre and Sidon, though very wise.
Zec 9:3 And Tyre shall build herself a stronghold, and shall heap up silver like the dust, and gold like the mud of the streets;
Zec 9:4 behold, the Lord will cast her out, and He will strike her wealth in the sea, and she shall be burned up with fire.
Zec 9:5 Ashkelon shall see and fear; Gaza also shall writhe in great pain; and Ekron shall be ashamed for her hope. And the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.
Zec 9:6 And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
Zec 9:7 And I will take away his bloods out of his mouth, and his idolatries from between his teeth. But the remnant, even he, shall be for our God. And he shall be as a governor in Judah, and Ekron like a Jebusite.
Zec 9:8 And I will camp around My house because of an army, because of him who passed by, and because of him who returns. And no tyrant shall pass through them any more. For now I have seen with My eyes.
Zec 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem; behold, your King comes to you. He is righteous and victorious, meek and riding on an ass, even on a colt, the son of an ass.
Zec 9:10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem. And the battle bow shall be cut off, and He shall speak peace to the nations; and His dominion shall be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.
Zec 9:11 You also, by the blood of Your covenant I have freed Your prisoners out of the pit in which is no water.
Zec 9:12 Turn to the stronghold, prisoners of hope; even today I declare that I will return to you double.
Zec 9:13 For I have bent Judah for me as a bow; I filled it with Ephraim, and I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece, and make you as the sword of a mighty man.
Zec 9:14 And Jehovah shall be seen over them, and His arrow shall go forth like the lightning; and the Lord Jehovah shall blow the ram’s horn, and shall go out with the windstorms of the south.
Zec 9:15 Jehovah of Hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour and trample the slingstones. And they shall drink and be boisterous, as through wine. And they shall be filled like a bowl, and like the corners of the altar.
Zec 9:16 And Jehovah their God shall save them in that day as the flock of His people; for they are as stones of a crown, lifted up as a banner over His land.
Zec 9:17 For how great is its goodness and how great its beauty! Grain shall make the young men flourish, and new wine the virgins.
Zec 10:1 Ask rain from Jehovah in the time of the latter rain. Jehovah shall make storm clouds, and He gives them showers of rain, grass to everyone in the field.
Zec 10:2 For the family idols speak iniquity, and the diviners have seen a lie and have told false dreams. They comfort in vain; therefore they wandered like a flock; they were troubled because there was no shepherd.
Zec 10:3 My anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I will punish the he-goats; for Jehovah of Hosts has visited His flock the house of Judah, and has made them as His beautiful horse in battle.
Zec 10:4 Out of Him came the cornerstone; out of Him the nail; out of Him the battle bow; out of Him every oppressor together.
Zec 10:5 And they shall be like mighty ones who trample the mud of the streets in the battle. And they shall fight because Jehovah is with them, and they shall make the riders on horses ashamed.
Zec 10:6 And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph, and I will return to save them; for I have pity on them. And they shall be as though I had not cast them off; for I am Jehovah their God, and I will answer them.
Zec 10:7 And Ephraim shall be like a mighty one, and their heart shall rejoice as by wine. And their sons shall see and be glad; their heart shall rejoice in Jehovah.
Zec 10:8 I will hiss for them and gather them; for I have redeemed them. And they shall be many as they were many.
Zec 10:9 And I will sow them among the peoples, and they shall remember Me in the distances; and they shall live with their sons and return.
Zec 10:10 I will return them out of the land of Egypt, and I will gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; for room shall not be found for them.
Zec 10:11 And he shall pass through the sea of distress, and shall strike the waves in the sea; and all the depths of the Nile shall dry up. And the pride of Assyria shall be humbled, and the scepter of Egypt shall move away.
Zec 10:12 And I will strengthen them in Jehovah; and they shall walk up and down in His name, says Jehovah.
Zec 11:1 Open your doors, O Lebanon, so that the fire may devour your cedars.
Zec 11:2 Howl, juniper; for the cedar has fallen; because the majestic trees are devastated. Howl, O oaks of Bashan; for the inaccessible forest has come down.
Zec 11:3 There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is destroyed. There is a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is destroyed.
Zec 11:4 For so says Jehovah my God: Feed the flock of the slaughter,
Zec 11:5 those buying them kill them, and hold themselves not guilty. And those who sell them say, Blessed be Jehovah, for I am rich; and their shepherds do not pity them.
Zec 11:6 For I will never again pity the people of the land, says Jehovah; but lo, I will make the men come out, each one into his neighbor’s hand and into his king’s hand. And they shall strike the land, and I will not deliver out of their hand.
Zec 11:7 And I fed the flock of slaughter, even the poor of the flock. And I took two staffs for myself; the one I called Kindness, and the other I called Union. And I fed the flock.
Zec 11:8 I also cut off three shepherds in one month; and my soul was impatient with them, and their soul also despised me.
Zec 11:9 And I said, I will not feed you; that which dies, let it die; and that which is to be cut off, let it be cut off. And those left, let them eat, each woman her neighbor’s flesh.
Zec 11:10 And I took my staff Kindness, and broke it apart, to break My covenant which I had made with all the peoples.
Zec 11:11 And it was broken in that day; and so the poor of the flock who were watching Me knew that it was the Word of Jehovah.
Zec 11:12 And I said to them, If it is good, give My price; and if not, let it go. So they weighed My price thirty pieces of silver.
Zec 11:13 And Jehovah said to me, Throw it to the potter, the magnificent price at which I was valued by them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver and threw them to the potter in the house of Jehovah.
Zec 11:14 Then I broke My other staff Union apart, that I might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.
Zec 11:15 And Jehovah said to me, Take to yourself yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd.
Zec 11:16 For lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land who will not care for those going to ruin, nor will he seek the young, nor will heal that which is broken, nor will he feed that which stands. But he shall eat the flesh of the fat and tear off their hoofs.
Zec 11:17 Woe to the worthless shepherd who abandons the flock! The sword shall be on his arm and on his right eye; his arm shall be completely dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.
Zec 12:1 The burden of the Word of Jehovah for Israel, says Jehovah, who stretches forth the heavens, and lays the foundation of the earth, and forms the spirit of man within him.
Zec 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the peoples all around, and it shall also be against Judah in the siege against Jerusalem.
Zec 12:3 And in that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all peoples. All who lift it shall be slashed, and all the nations of the earth will be gathered against it.
Zec 12:4 In that day, says Jehovah, I will strike every horse with terror, and his rider with madness. And I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will strike every horse of the peoples with blindness.
Zec 12:5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The people of Jerusalem shall be my strength in Jehovah of Hosts their God.
Zec 12:6 In that day I will make the governors of Judah like a hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire among cut grain. And they shall devour all the peoples all around, on the right hand and on the left hand. And Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her place, in Jerusalem.
Zec 12:7 Jehovah also shall save the tents of Judah first, so that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the people of Jerusalem may not be magnified above Judah.
Zec 12:8 In that day Jehovah shall defend around the people of Jerusalem. And it will be, he who is feeble among them at that day shall be like David; and the house of David shall be like God, like the Angel of Jehovah before them.
Zec 12:9 And it shall be in that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
Zec 12:10 And I will pour on the house of David, and on the people of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of prayers. And they shall look on Me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for Him, as one mourns for his only son, and shall be bitter over Him, as the bitterness over the first-born.
Zec 12:11 In that day shall be a great mourning in Jerusalem, like the mourning of Hadad-rimmon in the valley of Megiddo.
Zec 12:12 And the land shall mourn, each family apart; the family of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart
Zec 12:13 the family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;
Zec 12:14 all the families who remain, each family apart and their wives apart.
Zec 13:1 In that day there shall be a fountain opened to the house of David, and to the people of Jerusalem, for sin and for uncleanness.
Zec 13:2 And it shall be in that day, says Jehovah of Hosts, I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they shall be remembered no more. And also I will cause the prophets and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
Zec 13:3 And it shall be when any shall yet prophesy, his father and his mother who gave birth to him shall say to him then, You shall not live; for you speak lies in the name of Jehovah. And his father and his mother who gave him birth shall thrust him through when he prophesies.
Zec 13:4 And it shall be in that day, the prophets shall be ashamed, each one of his vision, when he prophesies. And they shall not wear a hairy garment to deceive.
Zec 13:5 But he shall say, I am no prophet; I am a man, a tiller of the ground; for a man taught me to buy from my youth.
Zec 13:6 And one shall say to him, What are these wounds in your hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of those who love Me.
Zec 13:7 Awake, O sword, against My Shepherd, and against the Man who is My companion, says Jehovah of Hosts; strike the Shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered. And I will turn My hand on the little ones.
Zec 13:8 And it shall be in all the land, says Jehovah, two parts in it shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left in it.
Zec 13:9 And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried. They shall call on My name, and I will answer them; I will say, It is My people; and they shall say, Jehovah is my God.
