Zechariah 12

Studovat vnitřní smysl


1 The burden of the word of Jehovah against Israel, says Jehovah, who stretches·​·out the heavens, and founds the earth, and forms the spirit of man in his midst.

2 Behold, I will set Jerusalem as a bowl of trepidation to all the people all around, and also they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

3 And it will be in that day that I will set Jerusalem as a stone, a load for all the peoples to bear; all who bear·​·the·​·load lacerating shall be lacerated, and all the nations of the earth shall be gathered·​·together to her.

4 In that day, says Jehovah, I will smite every horse with amazement, and his rider with madness; and I will open My eyes on the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the peoples with blindness.

5 And the leaders of Judah shall say in their heart, They who dwell in Jerusalem shall be an encouragement to me, in Jehovah of Armies their God.

6 In that day I will set the leaders of Judah like a laver* of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people all around, on the right and on the left; and Jerusalem shall still dwell in her own place* in Jerusalem.

7 And Jehovah shall save the tents of Judah first, so·​·that the splendor of the house of David and the splendor of those who dwell in Jerusalem may not magnify themselves against Judah.

8 In that day shall Jehovah defend those who dwell in Jerusalem; and he who stumbles among them in that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of Jehovah before them.

9 And it shall be in that day, that I will seek to blot·​·out all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

10 And I will spill·​·out on the house of David, and on those who dwell in Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications; and they shall look to Me whom they have thrust·​·through, and they shall wail over Him, as one wailing over an only child, and shall be·​·bitter over Him, as one is·​·bitter over his firstborn.

11 In that day there shall be a great wailing in Jerusalem, as the wailing of Hadadrimmon in the vale of Megiddo.

12 And the land shall wail, families, families apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;

13 the family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Simeon apart, and their wives apart;

14 all the families that are left, families, families apart, and their wives apart.
