Zechariah 9:1-8

Judgement on Israel’s Enemies

9An Oracle.


The word of the Lord is against the land of Hadrach
   and will rest upon Damascus.
For to the Lord belongs the capital* of Aram,*
   as do all the tribes of Israel;
2 Hamath also, which borders on it,
   Tyre and Sidon, though they are very wise.
3 Tyre has built itself a rampart,
   and heaped up silver like dust,
   and gold like the dirt of the streets.
4 But now, the Lord will strip it of its possessions
   and hurl its wealth into the sea,
   and it shall be devoured by fire.


5 Ashkelon shall see it and be afraid;
   Gaza too, and shall writhe in anguish;
   Ekron also, because its hopes are withered.
The king shall perish from Gaza;
   Ashkelon shall be uninhabited;
6 a mongrel people shall settle in Ashdod,
   and I will make an end of the pride of Philistia.
7 I will take away its blood from its mouth,
   and its abominations from between its teeth;
it too shall be a remnant for our God;
   it shall be like a clan in Judah,
   and Ekron shall be like the Jebusites.
8 Then I will encamp at my house as a guard,
   so that no one shall march to and fro;
no oppressor shall again overrun them,
   for now I have seen with my own eyes.
