Zechariah 9:1–8

*aThe burden of the word of the Lord in the land of bHadrach,

And cDamascus shall be the rest thereof:

When dthe eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, shall be toward the Lord.

And eHamath also shall border thereby;

fgTyrus, and fhZidon, though iit be very wise.

And Tyrus did build herself ka strong hold,

And lheaped up silver as the dust,

And mfine gold nas the mire of the streets.

Behold, the Lord will ocast her out,

And he will smite pher power in the sea;

And qshe shall be devoured with fire.

rAshkelon shall see it, and fear;

rGaza also shall see it, and be very sorrowful,

And rEkron; for her expectation rrshall be ashamed;

And the king shall perish from Gaza,

And Ashkelon shall not be inhabited.

And sa bastard shall dwell in tAshdod,

And I will cut off the pride of tthe Philistines.

And I will take away uhis 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 va governor in Judah,

And wEkron as xa Jebusite.

And yI will encamp about mine house because of the army,

Because of zhim that passeth by, and because of zhim that returneth:

And ano boppressor shall pass through them any more:

For now chave I seen with mine eyes.
