Prophecies against Neighboring Nations

And piled up silver like dust,
And gold like the mire of the streets.

And cast her wealth into the sea;
And she will be consumed with fire.
Unchecked Copy BoxZec 9:5 - Ashkelon will see it and be afraid.

And I will cut off the pride of the Philistines.

And be like a [fn]clan in Judah,
And Ekron like a Jebusite.
Unchecked Copy BoxZec 9:8 - But I will camp around My house [fn]because of an army,
Because of him who passes by and returns;
And no oppressor will pass over them anymore,
For now I have seen with My eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 9:9 - Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!

Humble, and mounted on a donkey,
Even on a colt, the [fn]foal of a donkey.
Unchecked Copy BoxZec 9:10 - I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim
And the horse from Jerusalem;

This very day I am declaring that I will restore double to you.

As the flock of His people;
For they are as the stones of a crown,

Grain will make the young men flourish, and new wine the virgins.
