Zechariah 1:1 In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, 2 The LORD has been greatly displeased with your fathers. 3 Therefore say unto them, this says the LORD of hosts; Turn you unto me, says the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, says the LORD of hosts. 4 Be you not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, this says the LORD of hosts; Turn you now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings: but they did not listen, nor pay attention unto me says the LORD. 5 Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever? 6 But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my bond servants the prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? And they returned and said; like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our ways, and according to our doings, so has he dealt with us.
7 Upon the twenty-forth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius, the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, 8 I looked by night, and saw a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that were in the shadows; and behind him there were red horses, speckled, and white. 9 Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will show you what these are. 10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, these are they whom the LORD has sent to walk to and fro through the earth. 11 And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said, we have walked to and fro through the earth, and, look and see, all the earth sits still, and is at rest. 12 Then the angel of the LORD answered and said; O LORD of hosts, how long will you not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which you have been angry these seventy years?
13 And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good words and comfortable words.
14 So the angel that talked with me said unto me, Cry you, saying, This says the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy. 15 And I am very greatly displeased with the nations that are at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction.
16 Therefore this says the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, says the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem. 17 Cry yet, saying, this says the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet again comfort Zion, and shall yet again choose Jerusalem.
18 Then I lifted up my eyes, and looked, and saw four horns. 19 And I said unto the angel that talked with me, what are these? And he answered me. These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem. 20 And the LORD showed me four carpenters. 21 Then said I, What have these come to do? And he spoke, saying; these are the horns which have scattered Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these have come to terrify them, to cast out the horns of the nations, which lifted up their horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
