John 12:15

Context
12:15Do not be afraid, people of Zion; 1  look, your king is coming, seated on a donkeys colt! 2 

1 tn Grk “Do not be afraid, daughter of Zion” (the phrase “daughter of Zion” is an idiom for the inhabitants of Jerusalem: “people of Zion”). The idiom “daughter of Zion” has been translated as “people of Zion” because the original idiom, while firmly embedded in the Christian tradition, is not understandable to most modern English readers.

2 sn A quotation from Zech 9:9.
