NASB — Zechariah 9 — KJV

Prophecies against Neighboring Nations

1 The Iburden of the word of the LORD is against the land of Hadrach, with aDamascus as its resting place (for the eyes of men, especially of all the tribes of Israel, are toward the LORD),
  2 And aHamath also, which borders on it;
  bTyre and cSidon, Ithough IIthey are bvery wise.
  3 For Tyre built herself a afortress
  And bpiled up silver like dust,
  And cgold like the mire of the streets.
  4 Behold, the Lord will adispossess her
  And cast her wealth into the sea;
  And she will be bconsumed with fire.
  5 Ashkelon will see [it] and be afraid.
  Gaza too will writhe in great pain;
  Also Ekron, for her expectation has been confounded.
  Moreover, the king will perish from Gaza,
  And Ashkelon will not be inhabited.
  6 And a Imongrel race will dwell in aAshdod,
  And I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.
  7 And I will remove their blood from their mouth
  And their detestable things from between their teeth.
  Then they also will be a remnant for our God,
  And be like a Iclan in Judah,
  And Ekron like a Jebusite.
  8 But I will camp around My house Ibecause of an army,
  Because of ahim who passes by and returns;
  And bno oppressor will pass over them anymore,
  For now I have seen with My eyes.
  9 aRejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
  Shout [in triumph], O daughter of Jerusalem!
  Behold, your bking is coming to you;
  He is Icjust and dendowed with salvation,
  eHumble, and mounted on a donkey,
  Even on a fcolt, the IIfoal of a donkey.
  10 I will acut off the chariot from Ephraim
  And the bhorse from Jerusalem;
  And the cbow of war will be cut off.
  And He will speak dpeace to the nations;
  And His edominion will be from sea to sea,
  And from the IRiver to the ends of the earth.

Deliverance of Judah and Ephraim

  11 ¶ As for you also, because of the ablood of [My] covenant with you,
  I have set your bprisoners free from the Iwaterless pit.
  12 Return to the Iastronghold, O prisoners IIwho have the bhope;
  This very day I am declaring that I will restore cdouble to you.
  13 For I will abend Judah Ias My bow,
  I will fill the bow with Ephraim.
  And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O bGreece;
  And I will make you like a cwarrior’s sword.
  14 Then the LORD will appear aover them,
  And His barrow will go forth like lightning;
  And the Lord IGOD will blow the ctrumpet,
  And will march in the dstorm winds of the south.
  15 aThe LORD of hosts will defend them.
  And they will bdevour and trample on the csling stones;
  And they will drink [and] be dboisterous as with wine;
  And they will be filled like a [sacrificial] basin,
  [Drenched] like the ecorners of the altar.
  16 And the LORD their God will asave them in that day
  As the flock of His people;
  For [they are as] the stones of a bcrown,
  ISparkling in His land.
  17 For what Iacomeliness and bbeauty [will be] IItheirs!
  Grain will make the young men flourish, and new wine the virgins.

God defendeth his Church.

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. 2 And Hamath also shall border thereby; Tyrus, and Zidon, though it be very wise. 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. 4 Behold, the Lord will cast her out, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire. 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. 6 And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines. 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. 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 eyes.

Zion is exhorted to rejoice for the coming of Christ, and his peaceable Kingdom.

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. 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. 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.

God's promises of victory and defence.

12 ¶ Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare [that] I will render double unto thee; 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. 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. 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 altar. 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. 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.
