Zechariah 1:8-17 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
8 During the night I had a vision--and there before me was a man riding a red1 horse! He was standing among the myrtle trees in a ravine. Behind him were red, brown and white horses.2 9 I asked, "What are these, my lord?" The angel3 who was talking with me answered, "I will show you what they are."4 10 Then the man standing among the myrtle trees explained, "They are the ones the LORD has sent to go throughout the earth."5 11 And they reported to the angel of the LORD,6 who was standing among the myrtle trees, "We have gone throughout the earth and found the whole world at rest and in peace."7 12 Then the angel of the LORD said, "LORD Almighty, how long8 will you withhold mercy9 from Jerusalem and from the towns of Judah,10 which you have been angry with these seventy11 years?" 13 So the LORD spoke12 kind and comforting words13 to the angel who talked with me.14 14 Then the angel who was speaking to me said, "Proclaim this word: This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'I am very jealous15 for Jerusalem and Zion, 15 but I am very angry with the nations that feel secure.16 I was only a little angry,17 but they added to the calamity.'18 16 "Therefore, this is what the LORD says: 'I will return19 to Jerusalem with mercy, and there my house will be rebuilt. And the measuring line20 will be stretched out over Jerusalem,' declares the LORD Almighty.21 17 "Proclaim further: This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'My towns will again overflow with prosperity, and the LORD will again comfort22 Zion and choose23 Jerusalem.'
