Him Whom They Have Pierced
Zec 12:10 "And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem
a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced,
they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn.
Zec 12:11 On that day the mourning in Jerusalem will be as great
as the mourning for Hadad-rimmon in the plain of Megiddo.
Zec 12:12 The land shall mourn, each family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself,
and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves;
Zec 12:13 the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves;
the family of the Shimeites by itself, and their wives by themselves;
Zec 12:14 and all the families that are left, each by itself, and their wives by themselves.
Zec 13:1 "On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.
Idolatry Cut Off
Zec 13:2 "And on that day, declares the LORD of hosts,
I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, so that they shall be remembered no more.
And also I will remove from the land the prophets and the spirit of uncleanness.
Zec 13:3 And if anyone again prophesies, his father and mother who bore him will say to him,
'You shall not live, for you speak lies in the name of the LORD.'
And his father and mother who bore him shall pierce him through when he prophesies.
Zec 13:4 "On that day every prophet will be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies.
He will not put on a hairy cloak in order to deceive,
Zec 13:5 but he will say, 'I am no prophet, I am a worker of the soil, for a man sold me in my youth.'
Zec 13:6 And if one asks him, 'What are these wounds on your back?' he will say,
'The wounds I received in the house of my friends.'
The Shepherd Struck
Zec 13:7 "Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, against the man who stands next to me," declares the LORD of hosts.
"Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered; I will turn my hand against the little ones.
Zec 13:8 In the whole land, declares the LORD, two thirds shall be cut off and perish, and one third shall be left alive.
Zec 13:9 And I will put this third into the fire,
and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested.
They will call upon my name, and I will answer them.
I will say, 'They are my people'; and they will say, 'The LORD is my God.'"
The Coming Day of the Lord
Zec 14:1 Behold, a day is coming for the LORD, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst.
Zec 14:2 For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle,
and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped.
Half of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
Zec 14:3 Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle.
Zec 14:4 On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east,
and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley,
so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward.
Zec 14:5 And you shall flee to the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal.
And you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah.
Then the LORD my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.
Zec 14:6 On that day there shall be no light, cold, or frost.
Zec 14:7 And there shall be a unique day, which is known to the LORD,
neither day nor night, but at evening time there shall be light.
Zec 14:8 On that day living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem,
half of them to the eastern sea and half of them to the western sea. It shall continue in summer as in winter.
Zec 14:9 And the LORD will be king over all the earth. On that day the LORD will be one and his name one.
Zec 14:10 The whole land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem.
But Jerusalem shall remain aloft on its site
from the Gate of Benjamin to the place of the former gate, to the Corner Gate,
and from the Tower of Hananel to the king's winepresses.
Zec 14:11 And it shall be inhabited, for there shall never again be a decree of utter destruction.
Jerusalem shall dwell in security.
Zec 14:12 And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem:
their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet,
their eyes will rot in their sockets,
and their tongues will rot in their mouths.
Zec 14:13 And on that day a great panic from the LORD shall fall on them,
so that each will seize the hand of another,
and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of the other.
Zec 14:14 Even Judah will fight at Jerusalem.
And the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be collected, gold, silver, and garments in great abundance.
Zec 14:15 And a plague like this plague
shall fall on the horses, the mules, the camels, the donkeys, and whatever beasts may be in those camps.
Zec 14:16 Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem
shall go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths.
Zec 14:17 And if any of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts,
there will be no rain on them.
Zec 14:18 And if the family of Egypt does not go up and present themselves, then on them there shall be no rain;
there shall be the plague with which the LORD afflicts the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths.
Zec 14:19 This shall be the punishment to Egypt and the punishment to all the nations
that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths.
Zec 14:20 And on that day there shall be inscribed on the bells of the horses,
"Holy to the LORD." And the pots in the house of the LORD shall be as the bowls before the altar.
Zec 14:21 And every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holy to the LORD of hosts,
so that all who sacrifice may come and take of them and boil the meat of the sacrifice
in them. And there shall no longer be a trader in the house of the LORD of hosts on that day.
