Zechariah 9:1-8 (Bible in Basic English)

View In My Bible
1 A word of the Lord: The Lord has come to the land of Hadrach, and Damascus is his resting-place: for the towns of Aram are the Lord's, 2 As well as Hamath, which is by its limit, and Tyre and Zidon, because they are very wise. 3 And Tyre made for herself a strong place, and got together silver like dust and the best gold like the earth of the streets. 4 See, the Lord will take away her heritage, overturning her power in the sea; and she will be burned up with fire. 5 Ashkelon will see it with fear, and Gaza, bent with pain; and Ekron, for her hope will be shamed: and the king will be cut off from Gaza, and Ashkelon will be unpeopled. 6 And a mixed people will be living in Ashdod, and I will have the pride of the Philistines cut off. 7 And I will take away his blood from his mouth, and his disgusting things from between his teeth; and some of his people will be kept for our God: and he will be as a family in Judah, and Ekron as one living in Jerusalem. 8 And I will put my forces in position round my house, so that there may be no coming and going: and no cruel master will again go through them: for now I have seen his trouble.
