Zechariah 8:1-23

Again the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
came [to me], saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
I was jealous
<07065> (8765)
for Zion
<06726>
with great
<01419>
jealousy
<07068>_,
and I was jealous
<07065> (8765)
for her with great
<01419>
fury
<02534>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
I am returned
<07725> (8804)
unto Zion
<06726>_,
and will dwell
<07931> (8804)
in the midst
<08432>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_:
and Jerusalem
<03389>
shall be called
<07121> (8738)
a city
<05892>
of truth
<0571>_;
and the mountain
<02022>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
the holy
<06944>
mountain
<02022>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
There shall yet old men
<02205>
and old women
<02205>
dwell
<03427> (8799)
in the streets
<07339>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and every man
<0376>
with his staff
<04938>
in his hand
<03027>
for very
<07230>
age
<03117>_.
{very...: Heb. multitude of days}
And the streets
<07339>
of the city
<05892>
shall be full
<04390> (8735)
of boys
<03206>
and girls
<03207>
playing
<07832> (8764)
in the streets
<07339>
thereof.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
If it be marvellous
<06381> (8735)
in the eyes
<05869>
of the remnant
<07611>
of this people
<05971>
in these days
<03117>_,
should it also be marvellous
<06381> (8735)
in mine eyes
<05869>_?
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
{marvellous: or, hard, or, difficult}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
Behold, I will save
<03467> (8688)
my people
<05971>
from the east
<04217>
country
<0776>_,
and from the west
<03996> <08121>
country
<0776>_;
{the west...: Heb. the country of the going down of the sun}
And I will bring
<0935> (8689)
them, and they shall dwell
<07931> (8804)
in the midst
<08432>
of Jerusalem
<03389>_:
and they shall be my people
<05971>_,
and I will be their God
<0430>_,
in truth
<0571>
and in righteousness
<06666>_.
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
Let your hands
<03027>
be strong
<02388> (8799)_,
ye that hear
<08085> (8802)
in these days
<03117>
these words
<01697>
by the mouth
<06310>
of the prophets
<05030>_,
which [were] in the day
<03117>
[that] the foundation
<03245> (0)
of the house
<01004>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
was laid
<03245> (8795)_,
that the temple
<01964>
might be built
<01129> (8736)_.
For before
<06440>
these days
<03117>
there was
<01961> (8738)
no hire
<07939>
for man
<0120>_,
nor any hire
<07939>
for beast
<0929>_;
neither [was there any] peace
<07965>
to him that went out
<03318> (8802)
or came in
<0935> (8802)
because of the affliction
<06862>_:
for I set
<07971> (8762)
all men
<0120>
every one
<0376>
against his neighbour
<07453>_.
{there was...: or, the hire of man became nothing}
But now I [will] not [be] unto the residue
<07611>
of this people
<05971>
as in the former
<07223>
days
<03117>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_.
For the seed
<02233>
[shall be] prosperous
<07965>_;
the vine
<01612>
shall give
<05414> (8799)
her fruit
<06529>_,
and the ground
<0776>
shall give
<05414> (8799)
her increase
<02981>_,
and the heavens
<08064>
shall give
<05414> (8799)
their dew
<02919>_;
and I will cause the remnant
<07611>
of this people
<05971>
to possess
<05157> (8689)
all these [things]. {prosperous: Heb. of peace}
And it shall come to pass, [that] as ye were a curse
<07045>
among the heathen
<01471>_,
O house
<01004>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_;
so will I save
<03467> (8686)
you, and ye shall be a blessing
<01293>_:
fear
<03372> (8799)
not, [but] let your hands
<03027>
be strong
<02388> (8799)_.
For thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
As I thought
<02161> (8804)
to punish
<07489> (8687)
you, when your fathers
<01>
provoked me to wrath
<07107> (8687)_,
saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_,
and I repented
<05162> (8738)
not:
So again
<07725> (8804)
have I thought
<02161> (8804)
in these days
<03117>
to do well
<03190> (8687)
unto Jerusalem
<03389>
and to the house
<01004>
of Judah
<03063>_:
fear
<03372> (8799)
ye not.
These [are] the things
<01697>
that ye shall do
<06213> (8799)_;
Speak
<01696> (8761)
ye every man
<0376>
the truth
<0571>
to his neighbour
<07453>_;
execute
<08199> (8798)
the judgment
<04941>
of truth
<0571>
and peace
<07965>
in your gates
<08179>_:
{execute...: Heb. judge truth, and the judgment of peace}
And let none
<0376>
of you imagine
<02803> (8799)
evil
<07451>
in your hearts
<03824>
against his neighbour
<07453>_;
and love
<0157> (8799)
no false
<08267>
oath
<07621>_:
for all these [are things] that I hate
<08130> (8804)_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
And the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
came unto me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
The fast
<06685>
of the fourth
<07243>
[month], and the fast
<06685>
of the fifth
<02549>_,
and the fast
<06685>
of the seventh
<07637>_,
and the fast
<06685>
of the tenth
<06224>_,
shall be to the house
<01004>
of Judah
<03063>
joy
<08342>
and gladness
<08057>_,
and cheerful
<02896>
feasts
<04150>_;
therefore love
<0157> (8798)
the truth
<0571>
and peace
<07965>_.
{feasts: or, solemn, or, set times}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
[It shall] yet [come to pass], that there shall come
<0935> (8799)
people
<05971>_,
and the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of many
<07227>
cities
<05892>_:
And the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of one
<0259>
[city] shall go
<01980> (8804)
to another
<0259>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Let us go
<03212> (8799)
speedily
<01980> (8800)
to pray
<02470> (8763)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_,
and to seek
<01245> (8763)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_:
I will go
<03212> (8799)
also. {speedily: or, continually: Heb. going} {to pray...: Heb. to intreat the face of}
Yea, many
<07227>
people
<05971>
and strong
<06099>
nations
<01471>
shall come
<0935> (8804)
to seek
<01245> (8763)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>
in Jerusalem
<03389>_,
and to pray
<02470> (8763)
before
<06440>
the LORD
<03068>_.
{to pray...: Heb. to intreat the face of}
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>
of hosts
<06635>_;
In those days
<03117>
[it shall come to pass], that ten
<06235>
men
<0582>
shall take hold
<02388> (8686)
out of all languages
<03956>
of the nations
<01471>_,
even shall take hold
<02388> (8689)
of the skirt
<03671>
of him that is a Jew
<0376> <03064>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
We will go
<03212> (8799)
with you: for we have heard
<08085> (8804)
[that] God
<0430>
[is] with you.
