The LORD Restores his People
Unchecked Copy BoxZec 10:1 -

Ask the LORD for rain

in the season of spring rain.

The LORD makes the rain clouds,

and he will give them showers of rain

and crops in the field for everyone.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 10:2 -

For the idols speak falsehood,

and the diviners see illusions;

they relate empty dreams

and offer empty comfort.

Therefore the people wander like sheep;

they suffer affliction because there is no shepherd.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 10:3 -

My anger burns against the shepherds,

so I will punish the leaders.[fn]

For the LORD of Armies has tended his flock,

the house of Judah;

he will make them like his majestic steed in battle.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 10:4 -

The cornerstone will come from Judah.[fn]

The tent peg will come from them

and also the battle bow and every[fn] ruler.

trampling down the mud of the streets.

They will fight because the LORD is with them,

and they will put horsemen to shame.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 10:6 -

I will strengthen the house of Judah

and deliver the house of Joseph.[fn]

I will restore[fn] them

because I have compassion on them,

and they will be

as though I had never rejected them.

For I am the LORD their God,

and I will answer them.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 10:7 -

Ephraim will be like a warrior,

and their hearts will be glad as if with wine.

Their children will see it and be glad;

their hearts will rejoice in the LORD.

I will whistle and gather them

because I have redeemed them;

they will be as numerous as they once were.

Though I sow them among the nations,

they will remember me in the distant lands;

they and their children will live and return.

I will bring them back from the land of Egypt

and gather them from Assyria.

but it will not be enough for them.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 10:11 -

The LORD [fn] will pass through the sea of distress

and strike the waves of the sea;

all the depths of the Nile will dry up.

The pride of Assyria will be brought down,

and the scepter of Egypt will come to an end.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 10:12 -

I will strengthen them in the LORD,

and they will march in his name —

this is the LORD’s declaration.
