Zechariah 8:1-17

NLT 1 Then another message came to me from the LORD of Heaven’s Armies: NIV 1 The word of the LORD Almighty came to me. NLT 2 “This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: My love for Mount Zion is passionate and strong; I am consumed with passion for Jerusalem! NIV 2 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “I am very jealous for Zion; I am burning with jealousy for her.” NLT 3 “And now the LORD says: I am returning to Mount Zion, and I will live in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City; the mountain of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies will be called the Holy Mountain. NIV 3 This is what the LORD says: “I will return to Zion and dwell in Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the Faithful City, and the mountain of the LORD Almighty will be called the Holy Mountain.” NLT 4 “This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: Once again old men and women will walk Jerusalem’s streets with their canes and will sit together in the city squares. NIV 4 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Once again men and women of ripe old age will sit in the streets of Jerusalem, each of them with cane in hand because of their age. NLT 5 And the streets of the city will be filled with boys and girls at play. NIV 5 The city streets will be filled with boys and girls playing there.” NLT 6 “This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: All this may seem impossible to you now, a small remnant of God’s people. But is it impossible for me? says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. NIV 6 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “It may seem marvelous to the remnant of this people at that time, but will it seem marvelous to me?” declares the LORD Almighty. NLT 7 “This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: You can be sure that I will rescue my people from the east and from the west. NIV 7 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “I will save my people from the countries of the east and the west. NLT 8 I will bring them home again to live safely in Jerusalem. They will be my people, and I will be faithful and just toward them as their God. NIV 8 I will bring them back to live in Jerusalem; they will be my people, and I will be faithful and righteous to them as their God.” NLT 9 “This is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: Be strong and finish the task! Ever since the laying of the foundation of the Temple of the LORD of Heaven’s Armies, you have heard what the prophets have been saying about completing the building. NIV 9 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Now hear these words, ‘Let your hands be strong so that the temple may be built.’ This is also what the prophets said who were present when the foundation was laid for the house of the LORD Almighty. NLT 10 Before the work on the Temple began, there were no jobs and no money to hire people or animals. No traveler was safe from the enemy, for there were enemies on all sides. I had turned everyone against each other. NIV 10 Before that time there were no wages for people or hire for animals. No one could go about their business safely because of their enemies, since I had turned everyone against their neighbor. NLT 11 “But now I will not treat the remnant of my people as I treated them before, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. NIV 11 But now I will not deal with the remnant of this people as I did in the past,” declares the LORD Almighty. NLT 12 For I am planting seeds of peace and prosperity among you. The grapevines will be heavy with fruit. The earth will produce its crops, and the heavens will release the dew. Once more I will cause the remnant in Judah and Israel to inherit these blessings. NIV 12 “The seed will grow well, the vine will yield its fruit, the ground will produce its crops, and the heavens will drop their dew. I will give all these things as an inheritance to the remnant of this people. NLT 13 Among the other nations, Judah and Israel became symbols of a cursed nation. But no longer! Now I will rescue you and make you both a symbol and a source of blessing. So don’t be afraid. Be strong, and get on with rebuilding the Temple! NIV 13 Just as you, Judah and Israel, have been a curse among the nations, so I will save you, and you will be a blessing. Do not be afraid, but let your hands be strong.” NLT 14 “For this is what the LORD of Heaven’s Armies says: I was determined to punish you when your ancestors angered me, and I did not change my mind, says the LORD of Heaven’s Armies. NIV 14 This is what the LORD Almighty says: “Just as I had determined to bring disaster on you and showed no pity when your ancestors angered me,” says the LORD Almighty, NLT 15 But now I am determined to bless Jerusalem and the people of Judah. So don’t be afraid. NIV 15 “so now I have determined to do good again to Jerusalem and Judah. Do not be afraid. NLT 16 But this is what you must do: Tell the truth to each other. Render verdicts in your courts that are just and that lead to peace. NIV 16 These are the things you are to do: Speak the truth to each other, and render true and sound judgment in your courts; NLT 17 Don’t scheme against each other. Stop your love of telling lies that you swear are the truth. I hate all these things, says the LORD .” NIV 17 do not plot evil against each other, and do not love to swear falsely. I hate all this,” declares the LORD.
