撒迦利亚书 12:1-14

耶路撒冷必蒙拯救

1以下是耶和华关于以色列的启示。

铺展穹苍、奠立大地的根基、塑造人灵魂的耶和华说: 2“看啊,我要使耶路撒冷成为令周围万民昏醉的酒杯。耶路撒冷被围困时,犹大也必受困。 3到那天,当地上的列国聚集起来攻击耶路撒冷的时候,我要使耶路撒冷成为一块沉重的石头。凡试图举起它的,必伤自己。 4到那天,我要使所有的战马惊恐,使马上的骑士癫狂。我必看顾犹大家,使列邦的马匹瞎眼。这是耶和华说的。 5那时,犹大的族长必心里说,‘耶路撒冷的居民从他们的上帝——万军之耶和华那里得到了力量。’

6“到那天,我必使犹大的族长像木柴中的火盆,像禾捆中的火把,吞噬左右四围的列邦,但耶路撒冷人必仍在原处——耶路撒冷安居。

7“耶和华必首先拯救犹大的帐篷,免得大卫家和耶路撒冷居民的荣耀超过犹大8到那天,耶和华必保护耶路撒冷的居民,使他们当中最软弱的像大卫一样刚强,使大卫家像上帝一样,像耶和华的天使一样带领他们。 9到那天,我必毁灭前来攻击耶路撒冷的列国。

10“我必将施恩和祷告的灵浇灌在大卫家和耶路撒冷的居民身上。他们必仰望我——他们所刺的那位,如丧独子一般为祂哀伤,如丧长子一般为祂痛哭。 11到那天,耶路撒冷必一片哀声,犹如米吉多平原的哈达临门的哀声。 12境内家家户户都必哀哭。大卫家的男子在一处,女子在一处;拿单家的男子在一处,女子在一处; 13利未家的男子在一处,女子在一处;示每家的男子在一处,女子在一处。 14其余各家也都哀哭,男女分开。

Zechariah 12:1-14

Jerusalem’s enemies to be destroyed

1A prophecy: the word of the Lord concerning Israel.

The Lord, who stretches out the heavens, who lays the foundation of the earth, and who forms the human spirit within a person, declares: 2‘I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. 3On that day, when all the nations of the earth are gathered against her, I will make Jerusalem an immovable rock for all the nations. All who try to move it will injure themselves. 4On that day I will strike every horse with panic and its rider with madness,’ declares the Lord. ‘I will keep a watchful eye over Judah, but I will blind all the horses of the nations. 5Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, “The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the Lord Almighty is their God.”

6‘On that day I will make the clans of Judah like a brazier in a woodpile, like a flaming torch among sheaves. They will consume all the surrounding peoples right and left, but Jerusalem will remain intact in her place.

7‘The Lord will save the dwellings of Judah first, so that the honour of the house of David and of Jerusalem’s inhabitants may not be greater than that of Judah. 8On that day the Lord will shield those who live in Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them will be like David, and the house of David will be like God, like the angel of the Lord going before them. 9On that day I will set out to destroy all the nations that attack Jerusalem.

Mourning for the one they pierced

10‘And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit12:10 Or the Spirit of grace and supplication. They will look on12:10 Or to me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son. 11On that day the weeping in Jerusalem will be as great as the weeping of Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. 12The land will mourn, each clan by itself, with their wives by themselves: the clan of the house of David and their wives, the clan of the house of Nathan and their wives, 13the clan of the house of Levi and their wives, the clan of Shimei and their wives, 14and all the rest of the clans and their wives.
