Zechariah 12

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: ‘I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem. On 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. On 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. Then the clans of Judah will say in their hearts, “The people of Jerusalem are strong, because the Lord Almighty is their God.”

‘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.

‘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. On 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. On 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 spirit[a] of grace and supplication. They will look on[b] 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. 11 On that day the weeping in Jerusalem will be as great as the weeping of Hadad Rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. 12 The 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, 13 the clan of the house of Levi and their wives, the clan of Shimei and their wives, 14 and all the rest of the clans and their wives.

撒迦利亞書 12



鋪展穹蒼、奠立大地的根基、塑造人靈魂的耶和華說: 「看啊,我要使耶路撒冷成為令周圍萬民昏醉的酒杯。耶路撒冷被圍困時,猶大也必受困。 到那天,當地上的列國聚集起來攻擊耶路撒冷的時候,我要使耶路撒冷成為一塊沉重的石頭。凡試圖舉起它的,必傷自己。 到那天,我要使所有的戰馬驚恐,使馬上的騎士癲狂。我必看顧猶大家,使列邦的馬匹瞎眼。這是耶和華說的。 那時,猶大的族長必心裡說,『耶路撒冷的居民從他們的上帝——萬軍之耶和華那裡得到了力量。』


「耶和華必首先拯救猶大的帳篷,免得大衛家和耶路撒冷居民的榮耀超過猶大。 到那天,耶和華必保護耶路撒冷的居民,使他們當中最軟弱的像大衛一樣剛強,使大衛家像上帝一樣,像耶和華的天使一樣帶領他們。 到那天,我必毀滅前來攻擊耶路撒冷的列國。

10 「我必將施恩和禱告的靈澆灌在大衛家和耶路撒冷的居民身上。他們必仰望我——他們所刺的那位,如喪獨子一般為祂哀傷,如喪長子一般為祂痛哭。 11 到那天,耶路撒冷必一片哀聲,猶如米吉多平原的哈達臨門的哀聲。 12 境內家家戶戶都必哀哭。大衛家的男子在一處,女子在一處;拿單家的男子在一處,女子在一處; 13 利未家的男子在一處,女子在一處;示每家的男子在一處,女子在一處。 14 其餘各家也都哀哭,男女分開。
