1. Judgment against Israel's Enemies
Today's Passage: Zechariah 9:1-8
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
Is this a who, what, when, where, or how passage?
1. This is the messsage from the LORD against the land of Aram and the city of Damascus, for the eyes of humanity, including all the tribes of Israel, are on the LORD.
2. Doom is certain for Hamath, near Damascus, and for the cities of Tyre and Sidon, though they are so clever.
3. Tyre has built a strong fortress and has made silver and gold as plentiful as dust in the streets!
4. But now the LORD will strip away Tyre's possessions and hurl its fortifications into the sea, and it will be burned to the ground.
5. The city of Ashkelon will see Tyre fall and will be filled with fear. Gaza will shake with terror, as will Ekron, for their hopes will be dashed. Gaza's king will be killed, and Ashkelon will be deserted.
6.Foreigners will occupy the city of Ashdod. I will destroy the pride of the Philistines.
7. I will grab the bloody meat from their mouths and snatch the detestable sacrifices from their teeth. Then the surviving Philistines will worship our God and become like a clan in judah. The Philistines of Ekron will join my people, as the ancient Jebusites once did.
8. I will guard my Temple and protect it from invading armies. I am watching closely to ensure that no more foreign oppressors overrun my people's land.
Zhechariah 9:1-8 NLT
