Zechariah 9:7

Context
9:7 I will take away their abominable religious practices; 1  then those who survive will become a community of believers in our God, 2  like a clan in Judah, and Ekron will be like the Jebusites.

1 tn Heb “and I will take away their blood from their mouth and their abominations from between their teeth.” These expressions refer to some type of abominable religious practices, perhaps eating meat with the blood still in it (less likely NCV “drinking blood”) or eating unclean or forbidden foods.

2 tn Heb “and they will be a remnant for our God”; cf. NIV “will belong to our God”; NLT “will worship our God.”
