Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion!1 Shout,2 Daughter of Jerusalem! See, your kinga comes to you,3 righteous and having salvation,4 gentle and riding on a donkey,5 on a colt, the foal of a donkey.610
I will take away the chariots from Ephraim and the war-horses from Jerusalem, and the battle bow will be broken.7 He will proclaim peace8 to the nations. His rule will extend from sea to sea and from the Riverb to the ends of the earth.c911
As for you, because of the blood of my covenant10 with you, I will free your prisoners11 from the waterless pit.1212
Return to your fortress,13 O prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice14 as much to you.
I will bend Judah as I bend my bow15 and fill it with Ephraim.16 I will rouse your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece,17 and make you like a warrior's sword.18
