God is to be sought unto, and not idols.
Zechariah 10:1 Praye the Lorde then by tymes to geue you þe latter rayne, so shal the Lorde make bright cloudes, and geue you rayne ynough for all the increase of the felde. Zechariah 10:2 For vayne is the answere of Idols. The sothsayers se lyes, and tell but vayne dreames: the conforte that they geue, is nothyng worth. Therfore, go they astraye lyke a flocke of shepe, and are troubled, because they haue no shepherde. Zechariah 10:3 My wroth full displeasure is moued at the shepherdes, & I will vyset the goates. For the Lorde of hostes will graciously viset his flock, the house of Iuda, and holde them as a goodly fayre horse in the batel. Zechariah 10:4 Out of Iuda shal come the helmet the nayle the batelbowe, and all the princes together.
As he visited his flock for sin, so he will save and restore them.
Zechariah 10:5 They shalbe as þe gyauntes, which in the batell treade downe the myre vpon the stretes. They shal fyght for the Lorde shalbe wyth them, so that the horsmen shalbe confounded. Zechariah 10:6 I wyll comforte the house of Iuda, and preserue the house of Ioseph. I wyll turne them also, for I pitie them: and they shal be lyke as they were, when I had not cast them of. For I the Lorde am their God, and wyll heare them. Zechariah 10:7 Ephraim shalbe as a gyaunt, and their hert shalbe chereful as thorow wyne: yee, their children shall se it, and be glad, and their hert shall reioyce in the Lorde. Zechariah 10:8 I wyll blowe for them and gather them together, for I wyll redeme them. They shall increace, as they increased afore. Zechariah 10:9 I wyll sowe them amonge the people, that they may thyncke vpon me in farre countrees: they shall lyue with their children, & turne agayne. Zechariah 10:10 I wyll brynge them agayne also from the lande of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria. I wyll carye them into the lande of Galaad & to Libanus and they shal wante nothinge. Zechariah 10:11 He shall go vpon the see of trouble, & smyte the see waues: so that all the depe floudes shalbe dryed vp. The proude boastynge of Assur shalbe cast downe, and the sceptre of Egypte shall be taken awaye. Zechariah 10:12 I wyll comforte them in the Lorde, that they maye walke in his name, sayeth the Lorde.
