Zechariah 1

Zechariah exhorteth to repentance.

Zechariah 1:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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, Zechariah 1:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The LORD hath been sore displeased with your fathers. Zechariah 1:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. Zechariah 1:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye now from your evil ways, and [from] your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith the LORD. Zechariah 1:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Your fathers, where [are] they? and the prophets, do they live forever? Zechariah 1:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my 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 hath he dealt with us.

The vision of the horses.

Zechariah 1:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which [is] the month Sebat, 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, Zechariah 1:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood among the myrtle trees that [were] in the bottom; and behind him [were there] red horses, speckled, and white. Zechariah 1:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then said I, O my lord, what [are] these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will show thee what these [be]. Zechariah 1:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said, These [are they] whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth. Zechariah 1:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} 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, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest.

At the prayer of the angel, comfortable promises are made to Jerusalem.

Zechariah 1:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these threescore and ten years? Zechariah 1:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me [with] good words [and] comfortable words. Zechariah 1:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy. Zechariah 1:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And I am very sore displeased with the heathen [that are] at ease: for I was but a little displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. Zechariah 1:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem. Zechariah 1:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.

The vision of the four horns, and the four carpenters.

Zechariah 1:18 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns. Zechariah 1:19 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What [be] these? And he answered me, These [are] the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem. Zechariah 1:20 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the LORD showed me four carpenters. Zechariah 1:21 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Then said I, What come these 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 are come to frighten them, to cast out the horns of the Gentiles, which lifted up [their] horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.
