1 H8066 In the eighth H2320 month, H8147 in the second H8141 year H1867 of Darius, H1961 came H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD H2148 to Zechariah, H1121 the son H1296 of Berechiah, H1121 the son H5714 of Iddo H5030 the prophet, H559 saying,
3 H559 Therefore say H3541 you to them, Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts; H7725 Turn H5002 you to me, said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts, H7725 and I will turn H559 to you, said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts.
4 H1 Be you not as your fathers, H834 to whom H413 H7223 the former H5030 prophets H7121 have cried, H559 saying, H3541 Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts; H7725 Turn H4994 you now H7451 from your evil H1870 ways, H7451 and from your evil H4611 doings: H8085 but they did not hear, H3808 nor H7181 listen H5002 to me, said H3068 the LORD.
6 H1697 But my words H2706 and my statutes, H834 which H6680 I commanded H5650 my servants H5030 the prophets, H5381 did they not take H5381 hold H1 of your fathers? H7725 and they returned H559 and said, H3068 Like as the LORD H6635 of hosts H2161 thought H6213 to do H1870 to us, according to our ways, H4611 and according to our doings, H3651 so H6213 has he dealt with us.
7 H702 On the four H6242 and twentieth H3117 day H6249 of the eleventh H6240 H2320 month, H1931 which H2320 is the month H7627 Sebat, H8147 in the second H8141 year H1867 of Darius, H1961 came H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD H2148 to Zechariah, H1121 the son H1296 of Berechiah, H1121 the son H5714 of Iddo H5030 the prophet, H559 saying,
8 H7200 I saw H3915 by night, H2009 and behold H376 a man H7392 riding H122 on a red H5483 horse, H5975 and he stood H996 among H1918 the myrtle H4699 trees that were in the bottom; H310 and behind H122 him were there red H5483 horses, H8320 speckled, H3836 and white.
9 H559 Then said H113 I, O my lord, H4100 what H428 are these? H4397 And the angel H1696 that talked H559 with me said H7200 to me, I will show H4100 you what H428 these be.
10 H376 And the man H5975 that stood H996 among H1918 the myrtle H6030 trees answered H559 and said, H428 These H834 are they whom H3068 the LORD H7971 has sent H1980 to walk H776 to and fro through the earth.
11 H6030 And they answered H4397 the angel H3068 of the LORD H5975 that stood H996 among H1918 the myrtle H559 trees, and said, H1980 We have walked H776 to and fro through the earth, H2009 and, behold, H3605 all H776 the earth H3427 sits H8252 still, and is at rest.
12 H4397 Then the angel H3068 of the LORD H6030 answered H559 and said, H3068 O LORD H6635 of hosts, H5704 how H5704 long H7355 will you not have mercy H3389 on Jerusalem H5892 and on the cities H3063 of Judah, H834 against which H2194 you have had indignation H2088 these H7657 three score H8141 and ten years?
13 H3068 And the LORD H6030 answered H4397 the angel H1696 that talked H2896 with me with good H1697 words H5150 and comfortable H1697 words.
14 H4397 So the angel H1696 that communed H559 with me said H7121 to me, Cry H559 you, saying, H3541 Thus H5002 said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts; H7065 I am jealous H3389 for Jerusalem H6726 and for Zion H1419 with a great H7068 jealousy.
15 H7107 And I am very sore displeased H1471 with the heathen H7600 that are at ease: H4592 for I was but a little H7107 displeased, H5826 and they helped H7451 forward the affliction.
16 H3651 Therefore H3541 thus H559 said H3068 the LORD; H7725 I am returned H3389 to Jerusalem H7356 with mercies: H1004 my house H1129 shall be built H5002 in it, said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts, H6957 and a line H5186 shall be stretched H3389 forth on Jerusalem.
17 H7121 Cry H5750 yet, H559 saying, H3541 Thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H6635 of hosts; H5892 My cities H2896 through prosperity H5750 shall yet H6327 be spread H6527 abroad; H3068 and the LORD H5750 shall yet H5162 comfort H6726 Zion, H5750 and shall yet H977 choose H3389 Jerusalem.
19 H559 And I said H4397 to the angel H1696 that talked H4100 with me, What H428 be these? H559 And he answered H428 me, These H7161 are the horns H834 which H2219 have scattered H3063 Judah, H3478 Israel, H3389 and Jerusalem.
21 H559 Then said H4100 I, What H935 come H428 these H6213 to do? H559 And he spoke, H559 saying, H428 These H7161 are the horns H834 which H2219 have scattered H3063 Judah, H3808 so that no H376 man H5375 did lift H7218 up his head: H428 but these H935 are come H2729 to fray H3034 them, to cast H7161 out the horns H1471 of the Gentiles, H5375 which lifted H7161 up their horn H413 over H776 the land H3063 of Judah H2219 to scatter it.
