On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness," declares the LORD. "I will keep a watchful eye over the house of Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations.10
"On that day I will make the leaders of Judah like a firepot12 in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume13 right and left all the surrounding peoples, but Jerusalem will remain intact14 in her place.
On that day the LORD will shield16 those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest17 among them will be like David, and the house of David will be like God,18 like the Angel of the LORD going before19 them.
"And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirita22 of grace and supplication.23 They will look onb me, the one they have pierced,24 and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child,25 and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son.26
