Zechariah 9

God defendeth his Church.

Zechariah 9:1 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The burden of the word of the LORD in the land of Hadrach, and Damascus [shall be] the rest thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, [shall be] toward the LORD. Zechariah 9:2 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Hamath also shall border thereby; Tyrus, and Zidon, though it be very wise. Zechariah 9:3 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And Tyrus did build herself a stronghold, and heaped up silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of the streets. Zechariah 9:4 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Behold, the Lord will cast her out, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured with fire. Zechariah 9:5 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Ashkelon shall see [it], and fear; Gaza also [shall see it], and be very sorrowful, and Ekron; for her expectation shall be ashamed; and the king shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon shall not be inhabited. Zechariah 9:6 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And a bastard shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride of the Philistines. Zechariah 9:7 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And I will take away his blood out of his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth: but he that remaineth, even he, [shall be] for our God, and he shall be as a governor in Judah, and Ekron as a Jebusite. Zechariah 9:8 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And I will encamp about mine house because of the army, because of him that passeth by, and because of him that returneth: and no oppressor shall pass through them any more: for now have I seen with mine eyes.

Zion is exhorted to rejoice for the coming of Christ, and his peaceable Kingdom.

Zechariah 9:9 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem: behold, thy King cometh unto thee: he [is] just, and having salvation; lowly, and riding upon an ass, and upon a colt the foal of an ass. Zechariah 9:10 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim, and the horse from Jerusalem, and the battle bow shall be cut off: and he shall speak peace unto the heathen: and his dominion [shall be] from sea [even] to sea, and from the river [even] to the ends of the earth. Zechariah 9:11 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit wherein [is] no water.

God's promises of victory and defence.

Zechariah 9:12 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} Turn you to the stronghold, ye prisoners of hope: even today do I declare [that] I will render double unto thee; Zechariah 9:13 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} When I have bent Judah for me, filled the bow with Ephraim, and raised up thy sons, O Zion, against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man. Zechariah 9:14 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the LORD shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord GOD shall blow the trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south. Zechariah 9:15 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with slingstones; and they shall drink, [and] make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, [and] as the corners of the altar. Zechariah 9:16 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} And the LORD their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they [shall be as] the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land. Zechariah 9:17 {not in Tyndale; KJV:} For how great [is] his goodness, and how great [is] his beauty! corn shall make the young men cheerful, and new wine the maids.
