A Call to Repentance1 In the eighth month of the second year of a Darius, the word of the Lord came to b Zechariah the prophet, the son of Berechiah, the son of c Iddo saying, 2 “The Lord was very d angry with your fathers. 3 “Therefore say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, e “Return to Me,” declares the Lord of hosts, “that I may return to you,” says the Lord of hosts. 4 “Do not be f like your fathers, to whom the g former prophets proclaimed, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, h “Return now from your evil ways and from your evil deeds.”’ But they did i not listen or give heed to Me,” declares the Lord. 5 “Your j fathers, where are they? And the k prophets, do they live forever? 6 “But did not My words and My statutes, which I commanded My servants the prophets, l overtake your fathers? Then they repented and said, ‘ m As the Lord of hosts purposed to do to us in accordance with our ways and our deeds, so He has dealt with us.’”’”
Patrol of the Earth7 On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Shebat, in the second year of Darius, the word of the Lord came to Zechariah the prophet, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo, as follows: 8 I saw at night, and behold, a man was riding on a n red horse, and he was standing among the o myrtle trees which were in the ravine, with red, sorrel and p white horses behind him. 9 Then I said, “My q lord, what are these?” And the r angel who was speaking with me said to me, “I will show you what these are.” 10 And the man who was standing among the myrtle trees answered and said, “These are those whom the Lord has sent to ▼
▼ Lit walk about through, t patrol the earth.” 11 So they answered the angel of the Lord who was u standing among the myrtle trees and said, “We have ▼
▼ Lit walked about throughpatrolled the earth, and behold w all the earth is ▼
▼ Lit sittingpeaceful and quiet.” 12 Then the angel of the Lord said, “O Lord of hosts y how long will You z have no compassion for Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, with which You have been aa indignant these ab seventy years?” 13 The Lord answered the ac angel who was speaking with me with ▼
▼ Lit goodgracious words, ae comforting words. 14 So the angel who was speaking with me said to me, af “Proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “I am ag exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and Zion. 15 “But I am very ah angry with the nations who are ai at ease; for while I was only a little angry, they ▼
▼ Lit helped for evil, ak furthered the disaster.” 16 ‘Therefore thus says the Lord, “I will al return to Jerusalem with compassion; My am house will be built in it,” declares the Lord of hosts, “and a measuring an line will be stretched over Jerusalem.”’ 17 “Again, proclaim, saying, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “My ao cities will again overflow with prosperity, and the Lord will again ap comfort Zion and again aq choose Jerusalem.”’” 18 ▼
▼ Ch 2:1 in HebThen I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, there were four horns. 19 So I said to the angel who was speaking with me, “What are these?” And he answered me, “These are the as horns which have scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem.” 20 Then the Lord showed me four at craftsmen. 21 I said, “What are these coming to do?” And he said, “These are the au horns which have scattered Judah so that no man lifts up his head; but these craftsmen have come to terrify them, to av throw down the horns of the nations who have lifted up their horns against the land of Judah in order to scatter it.”
