Zechariah 14

A.(1) Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. (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; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city. (3) Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

B. topographical changes – (4) And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall 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.(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.

C.(6) And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark: (7) But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.

D.  (8) And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out 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.

C’. (9) And the LORD shall be king over all the earth:  in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

B’. topographical changes – (10) All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses.(11) And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

A’. i. (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.

ii.(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 neighbour.

ii’. (14) And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.

i’. (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 this plague.

A.(16) And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem   shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts,

B. and to keep the feast of tabernacles.

C. (17) And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

D.(18) And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that have no rain;

E. there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

D’.(19) This shall be the punishment of Egypt,

C’. and the punishment of all nations that come not up

B’. to keep the feast of tabernacles.

A’. In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, Holiness unto the LORD; and the pots in the LORD’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts.

 

ZECHARIAH 10:3-6

A (3) Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds, and I punished the goats: for Yahweh of hosts hath visited his flock THE HOUSE OF JUDAH,

B (3) and hath made them as his goodly HORSE

C (3) IN THE BATTLE.

D (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.

C1 (5) And they shall be as mighty men, which tread down their enemies in the mire of the streets IN THE BATTLE:

B1 (5) and they shall fight, because Yahweh is with them, and the riders ON HORSES shall be confounded.

A1 (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 Yahweh their God, and will hear them.

ZECHARIAH 9:5, 8-14

ZECHARIAH 9:5:

A. ASHKELON shall see it, and fear;

B. GAZA also shall see it, and be very sorrowful,

C. and Ekron; for her expectation shall be ashamed;

B1. and the king shall perish from GAZA,

A1. and ASHKELON shall not be inhabited.

ZECHARIAH 9:8-14:

A (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.

B (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 <01121> of an ass.

C (10) And I will cut off the chariot FROM EPHRAIM, and the horse from Jerusalem,

D (10) 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.

E (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.

E1 (12) Turn you to the strong hold, YE PRISONERS of hope: even to day do I declare that I will render double unto thee;

D1 (13) When I have bent Judah for me, filled THE BOW

C1 (13) WITH EPHRAIM,

B1 (13) and raised up THY SONS <01121>, O ZION, against THY SONS <01121>, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man.

A1 (14) And Yahweh SHALL BE SEEN over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord Yahweh shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.

B (4) Thus saith Yahweh 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 <03117>.

C (5) And THE STREETS of the city

D (5) shall be full of boys and girls playing

C1 (5) in THE STREETS thereof.

B1 (6) Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people IN THESE DAYS <03117>, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith Yahweh of hosts.

A1 (7,8) Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country; 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 in righteousness.

ZECHARIAH 8:7-13:

A (7) Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; Behold, I WILL SAVE my people

B (7) from the east COUNTRY <0776>, and from the west COUNTRY <0776>;

C (8) And I WILL BRING <0935> 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 in righteousness.

D (9) Thus saith Yahweh 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 Yahweh of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built.

C1 (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 <0935> because of the affliction: for I set all men every one against his neighbour.

B1 (11,12) But now I will not be unto the residue of this people as in the former days, saith Yahweh of hosts. For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and THE GROUND <0776> shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.

A1 (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 8:9-13:

A (9) Thus saith Yahweh of hosts; LET YOUR HANDS BE STRONG, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets,

B (9) which were in the day that the foundation of THE HOUSE of Yahweh of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built.

C (10) For before these days there was no hire for man, nor any hire for beast; neither was there any PEACE <07965> to him that went out or came in because of the affliction: for I set all men every one against his neighbour.

D (11) But now I will not be unto the residue of this people as in the former days, saith Yahweh of hosts.

C1 (12) For the seed SHALL BE PROSPEROUS <07965>; 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 things.

B1 (13) And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen, O HOUSE of Judah, and HOUSE of Israel;

A1 (13) so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but LET YOUR HANDS BE STRONG.

ZECHARIAH 8:11-17:

A (11) But now I will not be unto the residue of this people as in the former days, SAITH <05002> Yahweh of hosts.

B (12) For the seed SHALL BE PROSPEROUS <07965>; 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 things.

C (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.

D (14) For thus saith <0559> Yahweh of hosts; AS I THOUGHT to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith Yahweh of hosts, and I repented not:

D1 (15) So again HAVE I THOUGHT in these days to do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah:

C1 (13) FEAR YE NOT.

B1 (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 <07965> in your gates:

A1 (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 <05002> Yahweh.

ZECHARIAH 8:21-23:

A (21) And the inhabitants of one city shall go <01980> to another, saying, LET US GO <03212> speedily

B (21) TO PRAY BEFORE Yahweh,

C (21) and TO SEEK Yahweh of hosts:

D (21) I will go also.

C1 (22) Yea, many people and strong nations shall come TO SEEK Yahweh of hosts in Jerusalem,

B1 (22) and TO PRAY BEFORE Yahweh.

A1 (23) Thus saith Yahweh 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 <03212>  with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
