Zechariah 1:12; Zechariah 1:17; Zechariah 7:7; Zechariah 8:3; Zechariah 8:5; Zechariah 14:2
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 threescore and ten years?
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.
Should ye not hear the words which the LORD hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was inhabited and in prosperity, and the cities thereof round about her, when men inhabited the south and the plain?
Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.
And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof.
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.
