God is to be sought unto, and not idols.
Zechariah 10:1 Praye the Lord then by tymes to geue thou the latter rayne, so shall the Lorde make cloudes, & geue you raine ynough, for all the intreace of the felde: Zechariah 10:2 For vayne is the answere of Idols. The sothsayers se lyes, & tel but vayn dreames: the comforthe that they geue, is nothinge worth. Therfore go they astraye lyke a flocke of shepe, & are troubled, because they haue no sheperde. Zechariah 10:3 My wrothfull displeasure is moued at the sheperdes, & I will vpset the goates. For the Lord of hostes wil graciously viset his flocke, the house of Iuda, and hold them as a goodlye fayre horse in the battell. Zechariah 10:4 Out of Iuda shall come the helmet, the nale, the battelbowe, 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 the giauntes, whiche in the batell tread doune the myre vpon the stretes. They shal fight, for the Lorde shalbe wyth them, so that the horsemen shalbe confounded. Zechariah 10:6 I will comforth the house of Iuda, and preserue the house of Ioseph. I wil turne them also, for I pitie them: & they shalbe lyke as they were, when I had not cast them of. For I the Lord am their God, and wil hear them. Zechariah 10:7 Ephraim shalbe as a gyaunt, and their hert shalbe chereful as thorow wine: yea, their children shall se it, & be glad, & their herte shall reioyce in the Lord. Zechariah 10:8 I wil blow for them & gather them together, for I wil redeme them. They shal increase as they increased afore. Zechariah 10:9 I will sow them among the people, that they may thincke vpon me in farre countreyes, they shall lyue wt their children, & turne again. Zechariah 10:10 I wil bring them again also from the land of Egipt, & gather them out of Assiria. I wil carie them into the land of Galaad & to Libanus, & they shall wante nothing. Zechariah 10:11 He shall go vpon the sea of trouble, & smyte the sea waues: so þt al the depe floudes shalbe dried vp. The proud boastinge of Assur shalbe cast doun, & the scepter of Egipte shalbe taken away. Zechariah 10:12 I will comforte them in the Lord, that they maye walcke in his name, sayeth the Lorde.
