Zechariah 1:14

Context
1:14 Turning to me, the messenger then said, “Cry out that the Lord who rules over all says, ‘I am very much moved 1  for Jerusalem and for Zion.

Zechariah 1:17

Context
1:17 Speak up again with the message of the Lord who rules over all: ‘My cities will once more overflow with prosperity, and once more the Lord will comfort Zion and validate his choice of Jerusalem.’”

1 tn Heb “jealous for” (so KJV, ASV); NIV, NRSV “very jealous for”; CEV “very protective of.” The meaning is that Jerusalem/Zion is the special object of God’s grace and purposes. This results in his unusual protection of his people, a protection not accorded others with whom he does not have such a close relationship.
