Zechariah 1

In the eighth
<08066>
month
<02320>_,
in the second
<08147>
year
<08141>
of Darius
<01867>_,
came the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
unto Zechariah
<02148>_,
the son
<01121>
of Berechiah
<01296>_,
the son
<01121>
of Iddo
<05714>
the prophet
<05030>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
The LORD
<03068>
hath been sore
<07110>
displeased
<07107> (8804)
with your fathers
<01>_.
{sore...: Heb. with displeasure}
Therefore say
<0559> (8804)
thou unto them, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
Turn
<07725> (8798)
ye unto me, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
and I will turn
<07725> (8799)
unto you, saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
Be ye not as your fathers
<01>_,
unto whom the former
<07223>
prophets
<05030>
have cried
<07121> (8804)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
Turn
<07725> (8798)
ye now from your evil
<07451>
ways
<01870>_,
and [from] your evil
<07451>
doings
<04611>_:
but they did not hear
<08085> (8804)_,
nor hearken
<07181> (8689)
unto me, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Your fathers
<01>_,
where [are] they? and the prophets
<05030>_,
do they live
<02421> (8799)
for ever
<05769>_?
But my words
<01697>
and my statutes
<02706>_,
which I commanded
<06680> (8765)
my servants
<05650>
the prophets
<05030>_,
did they not take hold
<05381> (8689)
of your fathers
<01>_?
and they returned
<07725> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
Like as the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
thought
<02161> (8804)
to do
<06213> (8800)
unto us, according to our ways
<01870>_,
and according to our doings
<04611>_,
so hath he dealt
<06213> (8804)
with us. {take...: or, overtake}
Upon the four
<0702>
and twentieth
<06242>
day
<03117>
of the eleventh
<06249> <06240>
month
<02320>_,
which [is] the month
<02320>
Sebat
<07627>_,
in the second
<08147>
year
<08141>
of Darius
<01867>_,
came the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
unto Zechariah
<02148>_,
the son
<01121>
of Berechiah
<01296>_,
the son
<01121>
of Iddo
<05714>
the prophet
<05030>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
I saw
<07200> (8804)
by night
<03915>_,
and behold a man
<0376>
riding
<07392> (8802)
upon a red
<0122>
horse
<05483>_,
and he stood
<05975> (8802)
among the myrtle trees
<01918>
that [were] in the bottom
<04699>_;
and behind
<0310>
him [were there] red
<0122>
horses
<05483>_,
speckled
<08320>_,
and white
<03836>_.
{speckled: or, bay}
Then said
<0559> (8799)
I, O my lord
<0113>_,
what [are] these? And the angel
<04397>
that talked
<01696> (8802)
with me said
<0559> (8799)
unto me, I will shew
<07200> (8686)
thee what these [be].
And the man
<0376>
that stood
<05975> (8802)
among the myrtle trees
<01918>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
These [are they] whom the LORD
<03068>
hath sent
<07971> (8804)
to walk
<01980> (8692)
to and fro through the earth
<0776>_.
And they answered
<06030> (8799)
the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
that stood
<05975> (8802)
among the myrtle trees
<01918>_,
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
We have walked to and fro
<01980> (8694)
through the earth
<0776>_,
and, behold, all the earth
<0776>
sitteth still
<03427> (8802)_,
and is at rest
<08252> (8802)_.
Then the angel
<04397>
of the LORD
<03068>
answered
<06030> (8799)
and said
<0559> (8799)_,
O LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
how long wilt thou not have mercy
<07355> (8762)
on Jerusalem
<03389>
and on the cities
<05892>
of Judah
<03063>_,
against which thou hast had indignation
<02194> (8804)
these threescore and ten
<07657>
years
<08141>_?
And the LORD
<03068>
answered
<06030> (8799)
the angel
<04397>
that talked
<01696> (8802)
with me [with] good
<02896>
words
<01697>
[and] comfortable
<05150>
words
<01697>_.
So the angel
<04397>
that communed
<01696> (8802)
with me said
<0559> (8799)
unto me, Cry
<07121> (8798)
thou, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
I am jealous
<07065> (8765)
for Jerusalem
<03389>
and for Zion
<06726>
with a great
<01419>
jealousy
<07068>_.
And I am very
<01419>
sore
<07110>
displeased
<07107> (8804)
with the heathen
<01471>
[that are] at ease
<07600>_:
for I was but a little
<04592>
displeased
<07107> (8802)_,
and they helped
<05826> (8804)
forward the affliction
<07451>_.
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
I am returned
<07725> (8804)
to Jerusalem
<03389>
with mercies
<07356>_:
my house
<01004>
shall be built
<01129> (8735)
in it, saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
and a line
<06957> (8675) <06961>
shall be stretched forth
<05186> (8735)
upon Jerusalem
<03389>_.
Cry
<07121> (8798)
yet, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
My cities
<05892>
through prosperity
<02896>
shall yet be spread abroad
<06327> (8799)_;
and the LORD
<03068>
shall yet comfort
<05162> (8765)
Zion
<06726>_,
and shall yet choose
<0977> (8804)
Jerusalem
<03389>_.
{prosperity: Heb. good}
Then lifted I up
<05375> (8799)
mine eyes
<05869>_,
and saw
<07200> (8799)_,
and behold four
<0702>
horns
<07161>_.
And I said
<0559> (8799)
unto the angel
<04397>
that talked
<01696> (8802)
with me, What [be] these? And he answered
<0559> (8799)
me, These [are] the horns
<07161>
which have scattered
<02219> (8765)
Judah
<03063>_,
Israel
<03478>_,
and Jerusalem
<03389>_.
And the LORD
<03068>
shewed
<07200> (8686)
me four
<0702>
carpenters
<02796>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
I, What come
<0935> (8802)
these to do
<06213> (8800)_?
And he spake
<0559> (8799)_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
These [are] the horns
<07161>
which have scattered
<02219> (8765)
Judah
<03063>_,
so that
<06310>
no man
<0376>
did lift up
<05375> (8804)
his head
<07218>_:
but these are come
<0935> (8799)
to fray
<02729> (8687)
them, to cast out
<03034> (8763)
the horns
<07161>
of the Gentiles
<01471>_,
which lifted up
<05375> (8802)
[their] horn
<07161>
over the land
<0776>
of Judah
<03063>
to scatter
<02219> (8763)
it.
