1:1,2 In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word
of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet,
saying, The LORD hath been sore displeased with your fathers.
1:3 Therefore say you unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts, Turn
you unto me, saith the LORD of
hosts and I will turn unto you says the LORD of hosts.
1:4 Be you not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets
have cried, saying, Thus says the LORD of hosts, Turn you now from your
evil ways and from your evil doings. But they did not hear nor hearken
unto me, says the LORD.

caring God of the multiverse:.Jeremiah
1:5 Your fathers, where are they? and the prophets, do they live for
1:6 But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the
prophets, did they not take hold of your fathers? and they returned and
said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our
ways and according to our doings, so has he dealt with us.
1:7 Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is
the month Sebat, in the second year of Darius,
came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah,
the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying,
1:8 I saw by night and behold a man riding upon a red horse and he
stood among the myrtle trees that were in the bottom and behind him were
there red horses, speckled and white.
1:9 Then said I, O my lord, what are these? And the angel that talked
with me said unto me, I will show you what these be.
1:10 And the man that stood among the myrtle trees answered and said,
These are they whom the LORD has sent to walk to and fro through the earth.
1:11 And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle
trees and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth and behold,
all the earth sits still and is at rest.
1:13 And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me with good
words and comfortable words.
1:16 Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned to Jerusalem with
mercies. My house shall be built in it, says the LORD of hosts and a line
shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.
1:17 Cry yet, saying, Thus says the LORD of hosts, My cities through
prosperity shall yet be spread abroad and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion
and shall yet choose Jerusalem.
2:4,5 And said unto him, Run, speak to this young man, saying, Jerusalem
shall be inhabited as towns without walls for the multitude of men and
cattle therein. For I, say the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round
about and the glory in the midst of her.
2:6 Ho, ho, come forth and flee from the land of the north.(Babylon,
Israel was always at war with), saith the LORD, for I
have spread you abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saiys the LORD.
23:8. And from Barnes
Notes: The north country, although its capital and center was Babylon,
was the whole Babylonian empire, called 'the North' (Jeremiah
1:13,14; 3:18; 6:1;
because its invasions always came upon Israel from the north.
2:11 And many nations shall be joined to the LORD in that day and shall
be my people and I will dwell in the midst of thee and thou shalt know
that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee.
2:12 And the LORD shall inherit Judah his portion in the holy land
and shall choose Jerusalem again.

devil is ready always to be one's adversary.
And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O Satan, even the LORD
that has chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee. Is not this a brand plucked out
of the fire?
Israel and Judah were plucked 'out of the fire' many times:.2Chronicles
36:10. And also those of spiritual
Israel today. Who
may they be today and where?
3:9 For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone
shall be seven eyes. Behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, says the
LORD of hosts and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
3:10 In that day, says the LORD
of hosts, shall you call every man his neighbour under the vine and
under the fig tree.

4:1,1 And the angel that talked with me came again and waked me as
a man that is wakened out of his sleep, And said unto me, What see you?
And I said, I have looked and behold a candlestick all of gold with a bowl
upon the top of it and his seven lamps thereon and seven pipes to the seven
lamps, which are upon the top thereof.
4:3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl
and the other upon the left side thereof.
4:4,5 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying,
What are these, my lord? Then the angel that talked with me answered and
said unto me, Know you not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
4:6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of
the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying,
Not by might, nor by power, but by
my spirit, says the LORD of hosts.
is 'Lord of hosts'?
4:7-14 Who are you, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel you shall become
a plain and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings,
crying, Grace, grace unto it. Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying, The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house.
His hands shall also finish it and you shall know that the LORD of hosts
has sent me unto you. For who has despised the day of small things? for
they shall rejoice and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel
with those seven. They are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through
the whole earth. Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two
olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side
thereof? And I answered again and said unto him, What be these two olive
branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of
themselves? And he answered me and said, Know you not what these be? And
I said, No, my lord. Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that
stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
5:1-11 Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes and looked and behold
a flying roll. And he said unto me, What see you? And I answered, I see
a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits and the breadth thereof
ten cubits. Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goes forth over
the face of the whole earth. For every one that steals shall be cut off
as on this side according to it and every one that swears shall be cut
off as on that side according to it. I will bring it forth, said the LORD
of hosts and it shall enter into the house of the thief and into the house
of him that swears falsely by my name, and it shall remain in the midst
of his house and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones
thereof. Then the angel that talked with me went forth and said unto me,
Lift up now thine eyes and see what is this that goes forth. And I said,
What is it? And he said, This is an ephah
that goes forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all
the earth. And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead, and this
is a woman that sits in the midst of the ephah. And he said, This is wickedness.
And he cast it into the midst of the ephah and he cast the weight of lead
upon the mouth thereof. Then lifted I up mine eyes and looked and behold,
there came out two women and the wind was in their wings, for they had
wings like the wings of a stork and they lifted up the ephah between the
earth and the heaven. Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither
do these bear the ephah? And he said unto me, To build it an house in the
land of Shinar.(ancient
name for the area later known as Babylon
and Chaldea).and it shall be
established and set there upon her own base.
