Zechariah 1


1:1 In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the
 word of the LORD to Zechariah, the son of Barachiah, the son of
 Iddo the prophet, saying,
1:2 The LORD hath been greatly displeased with your fathers.
1:3 Therefore say thou to them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts;
 Turn ye to me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn to you,
 saith the LORD of hosts.
1:4 Be ye not as your fathers, to whom the former prophets have
 cried, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye now from
 your evil ways, and [from] your evil doings: but they did not
 hear, nor hearken to me, saith the LORD.
1:5 Your fathers, where [are] they? and the prophets, do they
 live for ever?
1:6 But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants
 the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? and they
 returned and said, As the LORD of hosts thought to do to us,
 according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he
 dealt with us.
1:7 Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which
 [is] the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, came the
 word of the LORD to Zechariah, the son of Barachiah, the son of
 Iddo the prophet, saying,
1:8 I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse,
 and he stood among the myrtle-trees that [were] in the bottom;
 and behind him [were there] red horses, speckled, and white.
1:9 Then said I, O my LORD, what [are these]? And the angel that
 talked with me said to me, I will show thee what these [are].
1:10 And the man that stood among the myrtle-trees answered and
 said, These [are they] whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and
 fro through the earth.
1:11 And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among
 the myrtle-trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through
 the earth, and behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at
 rest.
1:12 Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of
 hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on
 the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation
 these seventy years.
1:13 And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me [with]
 good words [and] comforting words.
1:14 So the angel that communed with me said to me, Cry thou,
 saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for
 Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy.
1:15 And I am very greatly displeased with the heathen [that
 are] at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they
 helped forward the affliction.
1:16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; I have returned to Jerusalem
 with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of
 hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.
1:17 Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities
 through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD
 shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.
1:18 Then I lifted up my eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.
1:19 And I said to the angel that talked with me, What [are]
 these? And he answered me, These [are] the horns which have
 scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
1:20 And the LORD showed me four carpenters.
1:21 Then said I, What come these to do? And he spoke, saying,
 These [are] the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no
 man lifted up his head: but these are come to terrify them, to
 cast down the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted [their] horn
 over the land of Judah to scatter it.
