Zechariah 2:10-12

Context

2:10 “Sing out and be happy, Zion my daughter! 1  For look, I have come; I will settle in your midst,” says the Lord. 2:11 “Many nations will join themselves to the Lord on the day of salvation, 2  and they will also be my 3  people. Indeed, I will settle in the midst of you all.” Then you will know that the Lord who rules over all has sent me to you. 2:12 The Lord will take possession of 4  Judah as his portion in the holy land and he will choose Jerusalem once again.

1 sn This individualizing of Zion as a daughter draws attention to the corporate nature of the covenant community and also to the tenderness with which the Lord regards his chosen people.

2 tn Heb “on that day.” The descriptive phrase “of salvation” has been supplied in the translation for clarity.

3 tc The LXX and Syriac have the 3rd person masculine singular suffix in both places (“his people” and “he will settle”; cf. NAB, TEV) in order to avoid the Lord’s speaking of himself in the third person. Such resort is unnecessary, however, in light of the common shifting of person in Hebrew narrative (cf. 3:2).

4 tn Heb “will inherit” (so NIV, NRSV).
