Zechariah 1:1 In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the
word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the
Zechariah 1:2 The LORD hath been sore displeased with your fathers.
Zechariah 1:3 Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts;
Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the
LORD of hosts.
Zechariah 1:4 Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have
cried, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways,
and from your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith
Zechariah 1:5 Your fathers, where are they? and the prophets, do they live
Zechariah 1:6 But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants
the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? and they returned and
said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our ways,
and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us.
Zechariah 1:7 Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is
the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto
Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,
Zechariah 1:8 I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and
he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom; and behind him were
there red horses, speckled, and white.
Zechariah 1:9 Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that
talked with me said unto me, I will show thee what these be.
Zechariah 1:10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and
said, These are they whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the
Zechariah 1:11 And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the
myrtle trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and,
behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest.
Zechariah 1:12 Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of
hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of
Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years?
Zechariah 1:13 And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good
words and comfortable words.
Zechariah 1:14 So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou,
saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion
with a great jealousy.
Zechariah 1:15 And I am very sore displeased with the heathen that are at
ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the
Zechariah 1:16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem
with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a
line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.
Zechariah 1:17 Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities
through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort
Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.
Zechariah 1:18 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.
Zechariah 1:19 And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What be these?
And he answered me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel,
Zechariah 1:20 And the LORD showed me four carpenters.
Zechariah 1:21 Then said I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying,
These are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his
head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles,
which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
Zechariah 2:1 I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with
a measuring line in his hand.
Zechariah 2:2 Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, To
measure Jerusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length
Zechariah 2:3 And, behold, the angel that talked with me went forth, and
another angel went out to meet him,
Zechariah 2:4 And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying,
Jerusalem shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men
and cattle therein:
Zechariah 2:5 For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round
about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
Zechariah 2:6 Ho, ho, come forth, and flee from the land of the north, saith
the LORD: for I have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith
Zechariah 2:7 Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of
Zechariah 2:8 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent
me unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the
apple of his eye.
Zechariah 2:9 For, behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall
be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath
Zechariah 2:10 Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come, and I
will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD.
Zechariah 2:11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day, and
shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know
that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.
Zechariah 2:12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy
land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.
Zechariah 2:13 Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up
out of his holy habitation.
Zechariah 3:1 And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the
angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
Zechariah 3:2 And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan;
even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: is not this a brand
plucked out of the fire?
Zechariah 3:3 Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before
Zechariah 3:4 And he answered and spake unto those that stood before him,
saying, Take away the filthy garments from him. And unto him he said, Behold,
I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe thee with
change of raiment.
Zechariah 3:5 And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they
set a fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel
of the LORD stood by.
Zechariah 3:6 And the angel of the LORD protested unto Joshua, saying,
Zechariah 3:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways,
and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and
shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these
that stand by.
Zechariah 3:8 Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that
sit before thee: for they are men wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth
my servant the BRANCH.
Zechariah 3:9 For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one
stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith
the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
Zechariah 3:10 In that day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall ye call every man
his neighbour under the vine and under the fig tree.
Zechariah 4:1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as
a man that is wakened out of his sleep,
Zechariah 4:2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked,
and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his
seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the
Zechariah 4:3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the
bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
Zechariah 4:4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me,
saying, What are these, my lord?
Zechariah 4:5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me,
Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
Zechariah 4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word
of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my
spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
Zechariah 4:7 Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt
become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings,
crying, Grace, grace unto it.
Zechariah 4:8 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Zechariah 4:9 The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this
house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of
hosts hath sent me unto you.
Zechariah 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall
rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven;
they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
Zechariah 4:11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive
trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
Zechariah 4:12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two
olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of
Zechariah 4:13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be?
And I said, No, my lord.
Zechariah 4:14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by
the Lord of the whole earth.
Zechariah 5:1 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold
a flying roll.
Zechariah 5:2 And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a
flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten
Zechariah 5:3 Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over
the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as
on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as
on that side according to it.
Zechariah 5:4 I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall
enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth
falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall
consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
Zechariah 5:5 Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto
me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.
Zechariah 5:6 And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that
goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the
Zechariah 5:7 And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is
a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.
Zechariah 5:8 And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst
of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.
Zechariah 5:9 Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there
came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like
the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the
Zechariah 5:10 Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do
these bear the ephah?
Zechariah 5:11 And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of
Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.
Zechariah 6:1 And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and,
behold, there came four chariots out from between two mountains; and the
mountains were mountains of brass.
Zechariah 6:2 In the first chariot were red horses; and in the second
chariot black horses;
Zechariah 6:3 And in the third chariot white horses; and in the fourth
chariot grisled and bay horses.
Zechariah 6:4 Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked with me,
What are these, my lord?
Zechariah 6:5 And the angel answered and said unto me, These are the four
spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all
Zechariah 6:6 The black horses which are therein go forth into the north
country; and the white go forth after them; and the grisled go forth toward
the south country.
Zechariah 6:7 And the bay went forth, and sought to go that they might walk
to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro
through the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth.
Zechariah 6:8 Then cried he upon me, and spake unto me, saying, Behold,
these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north
Zechariah 6:9 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
Zechariah 6:10 Take of them of the captivity, even of Heldai, of Tobijah,
and of Jedaiah, which are come from Babylon, and come thou the same day, and
go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah;
Zechariah 6:11 Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set them upon
the head of Joshua the son of Josedech, the high priest;
Zechariah 6:12 And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts,
saying, Behold the man whose name is The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of
his place, and he shall build the temple of the LORD:
Zechariah 6:13 Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear
the glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest
upon his throne: and the counsel of peace shall be between them both.
Zechariah 6:14 And the crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah, and to
Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of the
Zechariah 6:15 And they that are far off shall come and build in the temple
of the LORD, and ye shall know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.
And this shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the voice of the LORD
Zechariah 7:1 And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, that
the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah in the fourth day of the ninth month,
even in Chisleu;
Zechariah 7:2 When they had sent unto the house of God Sherezer and
Regemmelech, and their men, to pray before the LORD,
Zechariah 7:3 And to speak unto the priests which were in the house of the
LORD of hosts, and to the prophets, saying, Should I weep in the fifth month,
separating myself, as I have done these so many years?
Zechariah 7:4 Then came the word of the LORD of hosts unto me, saying,
Zechariah 7:5 Speak unto all the people of the land, and to the priests,
saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh month, even those
seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, even to me?
Zechariah 7:6 And when ye did eat, and when ye did drink, did not ye eat for
yourselves, and drink for yourselves?
Zechariah 7:7 Should ye not hear the words which the LORD hath cried by the
former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, and the
cities thereof round about her, when men inhabited the south and the plain?
Zechariah 7:8 And the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah, saying,
Zechariah 7:9 Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true
judgment, and show mercy and compassions every man to his brother:
Zechariah 7:10 And oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger,
nor the poor; and let none of you imagine evil against his brother in your
Zechariah 7:11 But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder,
and stopped their ears, that they should not hear.
Zechariah 7:12 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they
should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his
spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of
Zechariah 7:13 Therefore it is come to pass, that as he cried, and they
would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear, saith the LORD of hosts:
Zechariah 7:14 But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations
whom they knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed
through nor returned: for they laid the pleasant land desolate.
Zechariah 8:1 Again the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying,
Zechariah 8:2 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with
great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.
Zechariah 8:3 Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell
in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and
the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.
Zechariah 8:4 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old
women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his
hand for very age.
Zechariah 8:5 And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls
playing in the streets thereof.
Zechariah 8:6 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes
of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in
mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts.
Zechariah 8:7 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people
from the east country, and from the west country;
Zechariah 8:8 And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of
Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and
Zechariah 8:9 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye
that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were
in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid,
that the temple might be built.
Zechariah 8:10 For before these days there was no hire for man, nor any hire
for beast; neither was there any peace to him that went out or came in because
of the affliction: for I set all men every one against his neighbour.
Zechariah 8:11 But now I will not be unto the residue of this people as in
the former days, saith the LORD of hosts.
Zechariah 8:12 For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her
fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give
their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these
Zechariah 8:13 And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the
heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye
shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong.
Zechariah 8:14 For thus saith the LORD of hosts; As I thought to punish you,
when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the LORD of hosts, and I
Zechariah 8:15 So again have I thought in these days to do well unto
Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not.
Zechariah 8:16 These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the
truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:
Zechariah 8:17 And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his
neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith
Zechariah 8:18 And the word of the LORD of hosts came unto me, saying,
Zechariah 8:19 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth month,
and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the
tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts;
therefore love the truth and peace.
Zechariah 8:20 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that
there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities:
Zechariah 8:21 And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying,
Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I
will go also.
Zechariah 8:22 Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the
LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.
Zechariah 8:23 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to
pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even
shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with
you: for we have heard that God is with you.
Zechariah 9:1 The burden of the word of the LORD in the land of Hadrach, and
Damascus shall be the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes
of Israel, shall be toward the LORD.
Zechariah 9:2 And Hamath also shall border thereby; Tyrus, and Zidon, though
it be very wise.
Zechariah 9:3 And Tyrus did build herself a strong hold, and heaped up
silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets.
Zechariah 9:4 Behold, the Lord will cast her out, and he will smite her
power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire.
Zechariah 9:5 Ashkelon shall see it, and fear; Gaza also shall see it, and
be very sorrowful, and Ekron; for her expectation shall be ashamed; and the
king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.
Zechariah 9:6 And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the
pride of the Philistines.
Zechariah 9:7 And I will take away his blood out of his mouth, and his
abominations from between his teeth: but he that remaineth, even he, shall be
for our God, and he shall be as a governor in Judah, and Ekron as a Jebusite.
Zechariah 9:8 And I will encamp about mine house because of the army,
because of him that passeth by, and because of him that returneth: and no
oppressor shall pass through them any more: for now have I seen with mine
Zechariah 9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of
Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he is just, and having
salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass.
Zechariah 9:10 And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse
from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace
unto the heathen: and his dominion shall be from sea even to sea, and from the
river even to the ends of the earth.
Zechariah 9:11 As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent
forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein is no water.
Zechariah 9:12 Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to
day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;
Zechariah 9:13 When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim,
and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as
the sword of a mighty man.
Zechariah 9:14 And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go
forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go
with whirlwinds of the south.
Zechariah 9:15 The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour,
and subdue with sling stones; and they shall drink, and make a noise as
through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, and as the corners of the
Zechariah 9:16 And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the
flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a crown, lifted up as
an ensign upon his land.
Zechariah 9:17 For how great is his goodness, and how great is his beauty!
corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids.
Zechariah 10:1 Ask ye of the LORD rain in the time of the latter rain; so
the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to every one
grass in the field.
Zechariah 10:2 For the idols have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen
a lie, and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain: therefore they went
their way as a flock, they were troubled, because there was no shepherd.
Zechariah 10:3 Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished
the goats: for the LORD of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah,
and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle.
Zechariah 10:4 Out of him came forth the corner, out of him the nail, out of
him the battle bow, out of him every oppressor together.
Zechariah 10:5 And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their
enemies in the mire of the streets in the battle: and they shall fight,
because the LORD is with them, and the riders on horses shall be confounded.
Zechariah 10:6 And I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the
house of Joseph, and I will bring them again to place them; for I have mercy
upon them: and they shall be as though I had not cast them off: for I am the
LORD their God, and will hear them.
Zechariah 10:7 And they of Ephraim shall be like a mighty man, and their
heart shall rejoice as through wine: yea, their children shall see it, and be
glad; their heart shall rejoice in the LORD.
Zechariah 10:8 I will hiss for them, and gather them; for I have redeemed
them: and they shall increase as they have increased.
Zechariah 10:9 And I will sow them among the people: and they shall remember
me in far countries; and they shall live with their children, and turn again.
Zechariah 10:10 I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt, and
gather them out of Assyria; and I will bring them into the land of Gilead and
Lebanon; and place shall not be found for them.
Zechariah 10:11 And he shall pass through the sea with affliction, and shall
smite the waves in the sea, and all the deeps of the river shall dry up: and
the pride of Assyria shall be brought down, and the sceptre of Egypt shall
Zechariah 10:12 And I will strengthen them in the LORD; and they shall walk
up and down in his name, saith the LORD.
Zechariah 11:1 Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy
Zechariah 11:2 Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty
are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan; for the forest of the vintage is come
Zechariah 11:3 There is a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their
glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring of young lions; for the pride of
Jordan is spoiled.
Zechariah 11:4 Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter;
Zechariah 11:5 Whose possessors slay them, and hold themselves not guilty:
and they that sell them say, Blessed be the LORD; for I am rich: and their own
shepherds pity them not.
Zechariah 11:6 For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith
the LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour's hand,
and into the hand of his king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their
hand I will not deliver them.
Zechariah 11:7 And I will feed the flock of slaughter, even you, O poor of
the flock. And I took unto me two staves; the one I called Beauty, and the
other I called Bands; and I fed the flock.
Zechariah 11:8 Three shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul
loathed them, and their soul also abhorred me.
Zechariah 11:9 Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it
die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be cut off; and let the rest eat
every one the flesh of another.
Zechariah 11:10 And I took my staff, even Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I
might break my covenant which I had made with all the people.
Zechariah 11:11 And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock
that waited upon me knew that it was the word of the LORD.
Zechariah 11:12 And I said unto them, If ye think good, give me my price;
and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty pieces of silver.
Zechariah 11:13 And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly
price that I was prised at of them. And I took the thirty pieces of silver,
and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.
Zechariah 11:14 Then I cut asunder mine other staff, even Bands, that I
might break the brotherhood between Judah and Israel.
Zechariah 11:15 And the LORD said unto me, Take unto thee yet the
instruments of a foolish shepherd.
Zechariah 11:16 For, lo, I will raise up a shepherd in the land, which shall
not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek the young one, nor heal
that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the
flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.
Zechariah 11:17 Woe to the idol shepherd that leaveth the flock! the sword
shall be upon his arm, and upon his right eye: his arm shall be clean dried
up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.
Zechariah 12:1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the
LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the
earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
Zechariah 12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the
people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and
Zechariah 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for
all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though
all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
Zechariah 12:4 In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with
astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the
house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
Zechariah 12:5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The
inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.
Zechariah 12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth
of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall
devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and
Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
Zechariah 12:7 The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the
glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do
not magnify themselves against Judah.

Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and
the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.

destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the
inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they
shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as
one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that
is in bitterness for his firstborn.
Zechariah 12:11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as
the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
Zechariah 12:12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family of
the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of
Nathan apart, and their wives apart;
Zechariah 12:13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives
apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;

David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem for sin and for uncleanness.
Zechariah 13:2 And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the LORD of
hosts, that I will cut off the names of the idols out of the land, and they
shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets and the
unclean spirit to pass out of the land.
Zechariah 13:3 And it shall come to pass, that when any shall yet prophesy,
then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt
not live; for thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and
his mother that begat him shall thrust him through when he prophesieth.
Zechariah 13:4 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the prophets
shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither
shall they wear a rough garment to deceive:
Zechariah 13:5 But he shall say, I am no prophet, I am an husbandman; for
man taught me to keep cattle from my youth.
Zechariah 13:6 And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine
hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my

is my fellow, saith the LORD of hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall
be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the little ones.

LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off and die; but the third shall be left

refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried: they
shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It is my people: and
they shall say, The LORD is my God.
Zechariah 14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be
divided in the midst of thee.
Zechariah 14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle;
and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished;

people shall not be cut off from the city.

nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
Zechariah 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of

cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there
shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the
north, and half of it toward the south.
Zechariah 14:5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the
valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye
fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the
LORD my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.
Zechariah 14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall
not be clear, nor dark:

from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward
the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

Zechariah 14:11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter
destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
Zechariah 14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite
all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume
away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in
their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
Zechariah 14:13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great tumult
from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the
hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his

all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and
apparel, in great abundance.
Zechariah 14:15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the
camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as

all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go up from year to

The Basic Truths Of Life!
Everyone that ever walked on this planet must come to terms in this life with some basic TRUTHS. These will be the basic truths that no one can argue with, if they are sane. Of course, if you believe what God says in His Own BOOK about you, then you will have no problem with accepting these basic truths.
1. The Brevity Of Life
"For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." (James 4:14b) Our life is brief! like a vapor, or like smoke. "Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?" (Job 7:1) He is born, and then he will die! This is certain! (The exception being Enoch and Elijah, and also, those believers in Jesus Christ who are alive when He comes for His Church.)
2. The Brevity Of Your Remembrance
You will soon be forgotten. A man is remembered only a little while, and then he is forgotten. "He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him anymore. Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little, Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death; A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness." (Job 7:10 & 10:20-22)
3. The Sureness Of Trouble
Life is bale full of troubles. I have also found this very true!!! "Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not." (Job 14:1).
4. The Verity Of The White Throne Judgment
"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). You will not miss this one unless YOU ARE HID in the CLEFT OF THE ROCK!
5. The Eternality And The Finality Of What You Do With Jesus Christ:
We will all be held accountable over this issue. It is a hard fact of life, my friend. Now will you take God's offer of eternal life ... purchased by His Son ... for all those who will put their trust in Him ... a thumbs down? You will everlastingly suffer the consequences!
6. That Men Never Learn From History
We learn from History That Men Never Learn From History! It is a heart problem! Men refuse to learn the "lessons" afforded by the light of HISTORY: the recorded historical events which occurred as fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Now, these are the basic truths with which we all must deal with one way or another!
7. What Should You Do?
"But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart:
that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"; [Romans 10:8-13]

Believe The BOOK!
The King James Bible
This is God's Holy WORD to you and I! Do you believe it? The A.V.1611 (or The King James Bible) is God's word PRESERVED in the English language for you and me. It came from the English Reformation. This Bible declares that: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." [2 Timothy 3:16] God's inspired word is preserved in the A.V.1611. The word "preserved" means maintained inspiration. "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in the furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." [Psalm 12:6-7] “PRESERVE.” .
Home In The Hills:
[Or New Jerusalem]
Everybody is going home someday. Everybody is going to their LONG HOME. When you die, you are going to go to your “long home” whether, it be in “Heaven” or in “Hell”. Do you realize that truth? “Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:” [Ecclesiastes 12:5].

The Book Of Zechariah
Zechariah 1:1 In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the
Questions to ask yourself while reading God's word:
Are you ready?
1) Do you have a "prepared heart" to seek God?
2) Have you found His Book?
3) Is your heart "fixed"? John 3:5 "born of water and of the Spirit"
4) Do you inquire of the LORD?
"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that
needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth" [2
5) Do you show forth your light by your good works? "Let your light so shine..." [Matthew 5:16]
6) Are you openly, before all men, publishing your relationship to Jesus? Do you possess "a good profession before many witnesses" ? [1 Timothy 6:11-12]
7) Are you following after righteousness, godliness, faith,
love, patience, meekness?
8) Do you have a heart in communion with the Spirit of God in a celebration of a worship of praise?
