Zechariah 1:1-21
1. In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of Jehovah unto Zechariah the prophet, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo, saying,
2. Jehovah hath been very wroth with your fathers.
3. And thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: Return unto me, saith Jehovah of hosts, and I will return unto you, saith Jehovah of hosts.
4. Be ye not as your fathers, unto whom the former prophets cried, saying, Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: Turn ye now from your evil ways, and from your evil doings; but they did not hearken nor attend unto me, saith Jehovah.
5. Your fathers, where are they? and the prophets, do they live for ever?
6. But my words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, did they not overtake your fathers? And they turned and said, Like as Jehovah of hosts thought to do unto us, according to our ways and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us.
7. Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Shebat, in the second year of Darius, came the word of Jehovah unto Zechariah the prophet, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo, saying,
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 low valley; and behind him were red, bay, and white horses.
9. And I said, My lord, what are these? And the angel that talked with me said unto me, I will shew thee what these are.
10. And the man that stood among the myrtle-trees answered and said, These are they whom Jehovah hath sent to walk to and fro through the earth.
11. And they answered the angel of Jehovah that stood among the myrtle-trees, and said, We have walked to and fro through the earth, and behold, all the earth sitteth still and is at rest.
12. And the angel of Jehovah answered and said, Jehovah of hosts, how long wilt thou not have mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these seventy years?
13. And Jehovah answered the angel that talked with me good words, comforting words.
14. And the angel that talked with me said unto me, Cry, saying, Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great jealousy,
15. and I am wroth exceedingly with the nations that are at ease; for I was but a little wroth, and they helped forward the affliction.
16. Therefore thus saith Jehovah: I am returned to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith Jehovah of hosts, and the line shall be stretched forth upon Jerusalem.
17. Cry further, saying, Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: My cities shall yet overflow with prosperity, and Jehovah shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.
18. And I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns.
19. And I said unto the angel that talked with me, What are these? And he said to me, These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem.
20. And Jehovah shewed me four craftsmen.
21. And I said, What come these to do? And he spoke, saying, Those are the horns which scattered Judah, so that no man lifted up his head; but these are come to affright them, to cast out the horns of the nations, which lifted up the horn against the land of Judah to scatter it.

Zechariah 2:1-13
1. And I lifted up mine eyes, and saw, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand.
2. And I said, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what is the breadth thereof, and what is the length thereof.
3. And behold, the angel that talked with me went forth; and another angel went forth to meet him,
4. 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;
5. and I, saith Jehovah, I will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the glory in the midst of her.
6. Ho, ho! flee from the land of the north, saith Jehovah; for I have scattered you abroad as the four winds of the heavens, saith Jehovah.
7. Ho! escape, Zion, that dwellest with the daughter of Babylon.
8. For thus saith Jehovah of hosts: After the glory, hath he sent me unto the nations that made you a spoil; for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye.
9. For behold, I will shake my hand upon them, and they shall become a spoil to those that served them: and ye shall know that Jehovah of hosts hath sent me.
10. Sing aloud and rejoice, daughter of Zion; for behold, I come, and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith Jehovah.
11. And many nations shall join themselves to Jehovah in that day, and shall be unto me for a people; and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt know that Jehovah of hosts hath sent me unto thee.
12. And Jehovah shall inherit Judah [as] his portion in the holy land, and shall yet choose Jerusalem.
13. Let all flesh be silent before Jehovah; for he is risen up out of his holy habitation.

Zechariah 3:1-10
1. And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the Angel of Jehovah, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
2. And Jehovah said unto Satan, Jehovah rebuke thee, O Satan! Yea, Jehovah that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee! Is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?
3. And Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the Angel.
4. And he spoke and said unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from off him. And unto him he said, See, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I clothe thee with festival-robes.
5. And I said, Let them set a pure turban upon his head. And they set the pure turban upon his head, and clothed him with garments; and the Angel of Jehovah stood by.
6. And the Angel of Jehovah protested unto Joshua, saying,
7. Thus saith Jehovah of hosts: If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts; and I will give thee a place to walk among these that stand by.
8. Hear now, Joshua the high priest, thou and thy fellows that sit before thee for they are men of portent for behold, I will bring forth my servant the Branch.
9. For behold, the stone that I have laid before Joshua upon one stone are seven eyes; behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith Jehovah of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of this land in one day.
10. In that day, saith Jehovah of hosts, shall ye invite every man his neighbour under the vine and under the fig-tree.

Psalms 147:12-20
12. Laud Jehovah, O Jerusalem; praise thy God, O Zion.
13. For he hath strengthened the bars of thy gates; he hath blessed thy children within thee;
14. He maketh peace in thy borders; he satisfieth thee with the finest of the wheat.
15. He sendeth forth his oracles to the earth: his word runneth very swiftly.
16. He giveth snow like wool, scattereth the hoar frost like ashes;
17. He casteth forth his ice like morsels: who can stand before his cold?
18. He sendeth his word, and melteth them; he causeth his wind to blow the waters flow.
19. He sheweth his word unto Jacob, his statutes and his judgments unto Israel.
20. He hath not dealt thus with any nation; and as for [his] judgments, they have not known them. Hallelujah!

Proverbs 30:21-23
21. Under three [things] the earth is disquieted, and under four it cannot bear up:
22. Under a servant when he reigneth, and a churl when he is filled with meat;
23. under an odious [woman] when she is married, and a handmaid when she is heir to her mistress.

Revelation 16:1-21
1. And I heard a great voice out of the temple, saying to the seven angels, Go and pour out the seven bowls of the fury of God upon the earth.
2. And the first went and poured out his bowl on the earth; and there came an evil and grievous sore upon the men that had the mark of the beast, and those who worshipped its image.
3. And the second poured out his bowl on the sea; and it became blood, as of a dead man; and every living soul died in the sea.
4. And the third poured out his bowl on the rivers, and [on] the fountains of waters; and they became blood.
5. And I heard the angel of the waters saying, Thou art righteous, who art and wast, the holy one, that thou hast judged so;
6. for they have poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and thou hast given them blood to drink; they are worthy.
7. And I heard the altar saying, Yea, Lord God Almighty, true and righteous [are] thy judgments.
8. And the fourth poured out his bowl on the sun; and it was given to it to burn men with fire.
9. And the men were burnt with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, who had authority over these plagues, and did not repent to give him glory.
10. And the fifth poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast; and its kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed their tongues with distress,
11. and blasphemed the God of the heaven for their distresses and their sores, and did not repent of their works.
12. And the sixth poured out his bowl on the great river Euphrates; and its water was dried up, that the way of the kings from the rising of the sun might be prepared.
13. And I saw out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, as frogs;
14. for they are [the] spirits of demons, doing signs; which go out to the kings of the whole habitable world to gather them together to the war of [that] great day of God the Almighty.
15. (Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed [is] he that watches and keeps his garments, that he may not walk naked, and that they [may not] see his shame.)
16. And he gathered them together to the place called in Hebrew, Armagedon.
17. And the seventh poured out his bowl on the air; and there came out a great voice from the temple of the heaven, from the throne, saying, It is done.
18. And there were lightnings, and voices, and thunders; and there was a great earthquake, such as was not since men were upon the earth, such an earthquake, so great.
19. And the great city was [divided] into three parts; and the cities of the nations fell: and great Babylon was remembered before God to give her the cup of the wine of the fury of his wrath.
20. And every island fled, and mountains were not found;
21. and a great hail, as of a talent weight, comes down out of the heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of hail, for the plague of it is exceeding great.
