Zechariah 12:2-8

Rotherham(i) 2 Lo! I am making Jerusalem a bowl of reeling to all the peoples, round about,—Moreover also, on Judah, shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem; 3 And it shall come to pass, in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a lifting-stone, to all the peoples, all who seek to lift her, shall, cut themselves in pieces,—though all the nations of the earth, gather themselves together against her. 4 In that day, Declareth Yahweh, I will smite every horse with terror, and his rider with madness,—and, over the house of Judah, will I keep opening mine eyes, and, every horse of the peoples, will I smite with blindness. 5 Then will the chiefs of Judah say in their hearts,—A strength unto me, [would be] the inhabitants of Jerusalem, in Yahweh of hosts, their God. 6 In that day, will I make the chiefs of Judah like a pan of fire among sticks, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf, so shall they devour, on the right hand and on the left, all the peoples round about; so shall Jerusalem yet, be inhabited, in her own place, as Jerusalem. 7 But Yahweh will save the tents of Judah first,—lest the honour of the house of David, and the honour of the inhabitant of Jerusalem, should be magnified over Judah. 8 In that day, will Yahweh, throw a covering, around the inhabitant of Jerusalem, so shall the tottering among them, in that day, become like David,—and the house of David—like God, like the messenger of Yahweh, before them.
