Bible: Zechariah 2:6-13

2:6You there! 1  Flee from the northland!” says the Lord, “for like the four winds of heaven 2  I have scattered you,” says the Lord. 2:7 Escape, Zion, you who live among the Babylonians! 3  2:8 For the Lord who rules over all says to me that for his own glory 4  he has sent me to the nations that plundered you – for anyone who touches you touches the pupil 5  of his 6  eye. 2:9 I am about to punish them 7  in such a way,” he says, “that they will be looted by their own slaves.” Then you will know that the Lord who rules over all has sent me.

2:10Sing out and be happy, Zion my daughter! 8  For look, I have come; I will settle in your midst,” says the Lord. 2:11 Many nations will join themselves to the Lord on the day of salvation, 9  and they will also be my 10  people. Indeed, I will settle in the midst of you all.” Then you will know that the Lord who rules over all has sent me to you. 2:12 The Lord will take possession of 11  Judah as his portion in the holy land and he will choose Jerusalem once again. 2:13 Be silent in the Lord’s presence, all people everywhere, 12  for he is being moved to action in his holy dwelling place. 13
