Zechariah 91An oracle.
The word of Jehovah is against the land of Hadrach,
and will rest upon Damascus;
for the eye of man
and of all the tribes of Israel is toward Jehovah;
2and Hamath, also, which borders on it;
Tyre and Sidon, because they are very wise.
3Tyre built herself a stronghold,
and heaped up silver like the dust,
and fine gold like the mire of the streets.
4Behold, the Lord will dispossess her,
and he will strike her power in the sea;
and she will be devoured with fire.
5Ashkelon will see it, and fear;
Gaza also, and will writhe in agony;
as will Ekron, for her expectation will be disappointed;
and the king will perish from Gaza,
and Ashkelon will not be inhabited.
6Foreigners will dwell in Ashdod,
and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
7I will take away his blood out of his mouth,
and his abominations from between his teeth;
and he also will be a remnant for our God;
and he will be as a chieftain in Judah,
and Ekron as a Jebusite.
8I will encamp around my house against the army,
that none pass through or return;
and no oppressor will pass through them any more:
for now I have seen with my eyes.
9Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion!
Shout, daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king comes to you!
He is righteous, and having salvation;
lowly, and riding on a donkey,
even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
10I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim,
and the horse from Jerusalem;
and the battle bow will be cut off;
and he will speak peace to the nations:
and his dominion will be from sea to sea,
and from the River to the ends of the earth.
11As for you also,
because of the blood of your covenant,
I have set free your prisoners from the pit in which is no water.
12Turn to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope!
Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.
13For indeed I bend Judah as a bow for me.
I have filled the bow with Ephraim;
and I will stir up your sons, Zion,
against your sons, Greece,
and will make you like the sword of a mighty man.
14 Jehovah will be seen over them;
and his arrow will go forth like lightning;
and the Lord Jehovah will blow the trumpet,
and will go with whirlwinds of the south.
15 Jehovah of hosts will defend them;
and they will destroy and overcome with sling stones;
and they will drink, and roar as through wine;
and they will be filled like bowls,
like the corners of the altar.
16 Jehovah their God will save them in that day as the flock of his people;
for they are like the jewels of a crown,
lifted on high over his land.
17For how great is his goodness,
and how great is his beauty!
Grain will make the young men flourish,
and new wine the virgins.
