Patrol of the Earth

7 On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Shebat, in the second year of Darius, the word of the LORD came to Zechariah the prophet, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo, as follows : 8 I saw at night, and behold, a man was riding on a 1red horse, and he was standing among the 2myrtle trees which were in the ravine, with red, sorrel and 3white horses behind him. 9 Then I said, "My 4lord, what are these ?" And the 5angel who was speaking with me said to me, "I will show you what these are." 10 And the man who was standing among the myrtle trees answered and said, "These are those whom the LORD has sent to a6patrol the earth." 11 So they answered the angel of the LORD who was 7standing among the myrtle trees and said, "We have bpatrolled the earth, and behold, 8all the earth is cpeaceful and quiet." 12 Then the angel of the LORD said, "O LORD of hosts, 9how long will You 10have no compassion for Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, with which You have been 11indignant these 12seventy years ?" 13 The LORD answered the 13angel who was speaking with me with dgracious words, 14comforting words. 14 So the angel who was speaking with me said to me, "15Proclaim, saying, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "I am 16exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and Zion. 15 "But I am very 17angry with the nations who are 18at ease ; for while I was only a little angry, they e19furthered the disaster." 16 'Therefore thus says the LORD, "I will 20return to Jerusalem with compassion ; My 21house will be built in it," declares the LORD of hosts, "and a measuring 22line will be stretched over Jerusalem."' 17 "Again, proclaim, saying, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "My 23cities will again overflow with prosperity, and the LORD will again 24comfort Zion and again 25choose Jerusalem.""'
