In the eighthH8066 month,H2320 in the secondH8147 yearH8141 of Darius,H1867 cameH1961 the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 to Zechariah,H2148 the sonH1121 of Berechiah,H1296 the sonH1121 of IddoH5714 the prophet,H5030 saying,H559
The LORDH3068 has been sore displeasedH7107 with your fathers.H1
Therefore sayH559 you to them, ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 TurnH7725 you to me, saidH5002 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 and I will turnH7725 to you, saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts.H6635
Be you not as your fathers,H1 to whomH834 H413 the formerH7223 prophetsH5030 have cried,H7121 saying,H559 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 TurnH7725 you nowH4994 from your evilH7451 ways,H1870 and from your evilH7451 doings:H4611 but they did not hear,H8085 norH3808 listenH7181 to me, saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
Your fathers,H1 whereH346 are they? and the prophets,H5030 do they liveH2421 for ever?H5769
But my wordsH1697 and my statutes,H2706 whichH834 I commandedH6680 my servantsH5650 the prophets,H5030 did they not takeH5381 holdH5381 of your fathers?H1 and they returnedH7725 and said,H559 Like as the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 thoughtH2161 to doH6213 to us, according to our ways,H1870 and according to our doings,H4611 soH3651 has he dealtH6213 with us.
On the fourH702 and twentiethH6242 dayH3117 of the eleventhH6249 H6240 month,H2320 whichH1931 is the monthH2320 Sebat,H7627 in the secondH8147 yearH8141 of Darius,H1867 cameH1961 the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 to Zechariah,H2148 the sonH1121 of Berechiah,H1296 the sonH1121 of IddoH5714 the prophet,H5030 saying,H559
I sawH7200 by night,H3915 and beholdH2009 a manH376 ridingH7392 on a redH122 horse,H5483 and he stoodH5975 amongH996 the myrtleH1918 trees that were in the bottom;H4699 and behindH310 him were there redH122 horses,H5483 speckled,H8320 and white.H3836
Then saidH559 I, O my lord,H113 whatH4100 are these?H428 And the angelH4397 that talkedH1696 with me saidH559 to me, I will showH7200 you whatH4100 theseH428 be.
And the manH376 that stoodH5975 amongH996 the myrtleH1918 trees answeredH6030 and said,H559 TheseH428 are they whomH834 the LORDH3068 has sentH7971 to walkH1980 to and fro through the earth.H776
And they answeredH6030 the angelH4397 of the LORDH3068 that stoodH5975 amongH996 the myrtleH1918 trees, and said,H559 We have walkedH1980 to and fro through the earth,H776 and, behold,H2009 allH3605 the earthH776 sitsH3427 still, and is at rest.H8252
Then the angelH4397 of the LORDH3068 answeredH6030 and said,H559 O LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 howH5704 longH5704 will you not have mercyH7355 on JerusalemH3389 and on the citiesH5892 of Judah,H3063 against whichH834 you have had indignationH2194 theseH2088 three scoreH7657 and ten years?H8141
And the LORDH3068 answeredH6030 the angelH4397 that talkedH1696 with me with goodH2896 wordsH1697 and comfortableH5150 words.H1697
So the angelH4397 that communedH1696 with me saidH559 to me, CryH7121 you, saying,H559 ThusH3541 saidH5002 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 I am jealousH7065 for JerusalemH3389 and for ZionH6726 with a greatH1419 jealousy.H7068
And I am very sore displeasedH7107 with the heathenH1471 that are at ease:H7600 for I was but a littleH4592 displeased,H7107 and they helpedH5826 forward the affliction.H7451
ThereforeH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LORD;H3068 I am returnedH7725 to JerusalemH3389 with mercies:H7356 my houseH1004 shall be builtH1129 in it, saidH5002 the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 and a lineH6957 shall be stretchedH5186 forth on Jerusalem.H3389
CryH7121 yet,H5750 saying,H559 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 of hosts;H6635 My citiesH5892 through prosperityH2896 shall yetH5750 be spreadH6327 abroad;H6527 and the LORDH3068 shall yetH5750 comfortH5162 Zion,H6726 and shall yetH5750 chooseH977 Jerusalem.H3389
Then liftedH5375 I up my eyes,H5869 and saw,H7200 and beholdH2009 fourH702 horns.H7161
And I saidH559 to the angelH4397 that talkedH1696 with me, WhatH4100 be these?H428 And he answeredH559 me, TheseH428 are the hornsH7161 whichH834 have scatteredH2219 Judah,H3063 Israel,H3478 and Jerusalem.H3389
And the LORDH3068 showedH7200 me fourH702 carpenters.H2796
Then saidH559 I, WhatH4100 comeH935 theseH428 to do?H6213 And he spoke,H559 saying,H559 TheseH428 are the hornsH7161 whichH834 have scatteredH2219 Judah,H3063 so that noH3808 manH376 did liftH5375 up his head:H7218 but theseH428 are comeH935 to frayH2729 them, to castH3034 out the hornsH7161 of the Gentiles,H1471 which liftedH5375 up their hornH7161 overH413 the landH776 of JudahH3063 to scatterH2219 it.
