Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:10 - Before that time there was no compensation for man or animal, nor was there any relief from adversity for those who came and went, because I had pitted everybody - each one - against everyone else.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:11 - But I will be different now to this remnant of my people from the way I was in those days,' says the LORD who rules over all,

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:12 - 'for there will be a peaceful time of sowing, the vine will produce its fruit and the ground its yield, and the skies will rain down dew. Then I will allow the remnant of my people to possess all these things.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:13 - And it will come about that just as you (both Judah and Israel) were a curse to the nations, so I will save you and you will be a blessing. Do not be afraid! Instead, be strong!'

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:14 - "For the LORD who rules over all says, 'As I had planned to hurt you when your fathers made me angry,' says the LORD who rules over all, 'and I was not sorry,

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:15 - so, to the contrary, I have planned in these days to do good to Jerusalem and Judah - do not fear!

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:16 - These are the things you must do: Speak the truth, each of you, to one another. Practice true and righteous judgment in your courts.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:17 - Do not plan evil in your hearts against one another. Do not favor a false oath - these are all things that I hate,' says the LORD."

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:18 - The word of the LORD who rules over all came to me as follows:

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:19 - "The LORD who rules over all says, 'The fast of the fourth, fifth, seventh, and tenth months will become joyful and happy, pleasant feasts for the house of Judah, so love truth and peace.'

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:20 - The LORD who rules over all says, 'It will someday come to pass that people - residents of many cities - will come.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:21 - The inhabitants of one will go to another and say, "Let's go up at once to ask the favor of the LORD, to seek the LORD who rules over all. Indeed, I'll go with you."'

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:22 - Many peoples and powerful nations will come to Jerusalem to seek the LORD who rules over all and to ask his favor.

Unchecked Copy BoxZec 8:23 - The LORD who rules over all says, 'In those days ten people from all languages and nations will grasp hold of - indeed, grab - the robe of one Jew and say, "Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you."'"
