Zechariah 1:1-21
1. In the eighth month of the second year of Darius, the word of the LORD came to Zechariah the prophet, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo saying,
2. "The LORD was very angry with your fathers.
3. "Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Return to Me," declares the LORD of hosts, "that I may return to you," says the LORD of hosts.
4. "Do not be like your fathers, to whom the former prophets proclaimed, saying, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "Return now from your evil ways and from your evil deeds."' But they did not listen or give heed to Me," declares the LORD.
5. "Your fathers, where are they? And the prophets, do they live forever?
6. "But did not My words and My statutes, which I commanded My servants the prophets, overtake your fathers? Then they repented and said, 'As the LORD of hosts purposed to do to us in accordance with our ways and our deeds, so He has dealt with us.'"'"
7. On the twenty-fourth day of the eleventh month, which is the month Shebat, in the second year of Darius, the word of the LORD came to Zechariah the prophet, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo, as follows:
8. I saw at night, and behold, a man was riding on a red horse, and he was standing among the myrtle trees which were in the ravine, with red, sorrel and white horses behind him.
9. Then I said, "My lord, what are these?" And the angel who was speaking with me said to me, "I will show you what these are."
10. And the man who was standing among the myrtle trees answered and said, "These are those whom the LORD has sent to patrol the earth."
11. So they answered the angel of the LORD who was standing among the myrtle trees and said, "We have patrolled the earth, and behold, all the earth is peaceful and quiet."
12. Then the angel of the LORD said, "O LORD of hosts, how long will You have no compassion for Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, with which You have been indignant these seventy years?"
13. The LORD answered the angel who was speaking with me with gracious words, comforting words.
14. So the angel who was speaking with me said to me, "Proclaim, saying, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "I am exceedingly jealous for Jerusalem and Zion.
15. "But I am very angry with the nations who are at ease; for while I was only a little angry, they furthered the disaster."
16. 'Therefore thus says the LORD, "I will return to Jerusalem with compassion; My house will be built in it," declares the LORD of hosts, "and a measuring line will be stretched over Jerusalem."'
17. "Again, proclaim, saying, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, "My cities will again overflow with prosperity, and the LORD will again comfort Zion and again choose Jerusalem."'"
18. Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, there were four horns.
19. So I said to the angel who was speaking with me, "What are these?" And he answered me, "These are the horns which have scattered Judah, Israel and Jerusalem."
20. Then the LORD showed me four craftsmen.
21. I said, "What are these coming to do?" And he said, "These are the horns which have scattered Judah so that no man lifts up his head; but these craftsmen have come to terrify them, to throw down the horns of the nations who have lifted up their horns against the land of Judah in order to scatter it."

Zechariah 2:1-13
1. Then I lifted up my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a man with a measuring line in his hand.
2. So I said, "Where are you going?" And he said to me, "To measure Jerusalem, to see how wide it is and how long it is."
3. And behold, the angel who was speaking with me was going out, and another angel was coming out to meet him,
4. and said to him, "Run, speak to that young man, saying, 'Jerusalem will be inhabited without walls because of the multitude of men and cattle within it.
5. 'For I,' declares the LORD, 'will be a wall of fire around her, and I will be the glory in her midst.'"
6. "Ho there! Flee from the land of the north," declares the LORD, "for I have dispersed you as the four winds of the heavens," declares the LORD.
7. "Ho, Zion! Escape, you who are living with the daughter of Babylon."
8. For thus says the LORD of hosts, "After glory He has sent me against the nations which plunder you, for he who touches you, touches the apple of His eye.
9. "For behold, I will wave My hand over them so that they will be plunder for their slaves. Then you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me.
10. "Sing for joy and be glad, O daughter of Zion; for behold I am coming and I will dwell in your midst," declares the LORD.
11. "Many nations will join themselves to the LORD in that day and will become My people. Then I will dwell in your midst, and you will know that the LORD of hosts has sent Me to you.
12. "The LORD will possess Judah as His portion in the holy land, and will again choose Jerusalem.
13. "Be silent, all flesh, before the LORD; for He is aroused from His holy habitation."

Zechariah 3:1-10
1. Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him.
2. The LORD said to Satan, "The LORD rebuke you, Satan! Indeed, the LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?"
3. Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and standing before the angel.
4. He spoke and said to those who were standing before him, saying, "Remove the filthy garments from him." Again he said to him, "See, I have taken your iniquity away from you and will clothe you with festal robes."
5. Then I said, "Let them put a clean turban on his head." So they put a clean turban on his head and clothed him with garments, while the angel of the LORD was standing by.
6. And the angel of the LORD admonished Joshua, saying,
7. "Thus says the LORD of hosts, 'If you will walk in My ways and if you will perform My service, then you will also govern My house and also have charge of My courts, and I will grant you free access among these who are standing here.
8. 'Now listen, Joshua the high priest, you and your friends who are sitting in front of you--indeed they are men who are a symbol, for behold, I am going to bring in My servant the Branch.
9. 'For behold, the stone that I have set before Joshua; on one stone are seven eyes. Behold, I will engrave an inscription on it,' declares the LORD of hosts, 'and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.
10. 'In that day,' declares the LORD of hosts, 'every one of you will invite his neighbor to sit under his vine and under his fig tree.'"

Psalms 147:12-20
12. Praise the LORD, O Jerusalem! Praise your God, O Zion!
13. For He has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your sons within you.
14. He makes peace in your borders; He satisfies you with the finest of the wheat.
15. He sends forth His command to the earth; His word runs very swiftly.
16. He gives snow like wool; He scatters the frost like ashes.
17. He casts forth His ice as fragments; Who can stand before His cold?
18. He sends forth His word and melts them; He causes His wind to blow and the waters to flow.
19. He declares His words to Jacob, His statutes and His ordinances to Israel.
20. He has not dealt thus with any nation; And as for His ordinances, they have not known them. Praise the LORD!

Proverbs 30:21-23
21. Under three things the earth quakes, And under four, it cannot bear up:
22. Under a slave when he becomes king, And a fool when he is satisfied with food,
23. Under an unloved woman when she gets a husband, And a maidservant when she supplants her mistress.

Revelation 16:1-21
1. Then I heard a loud voice from the temple, saying to the seven angels, "Go and pour out on the earth the seven bowls of the wrath of God."
2. So the first angel went and poured out his bowl on the earth; and it became a loathsome and malignant sore on the people who had the mark of the beast and who worshiped his image.
3. The second angel poured out his bowl into the sea, and it became blood like that of a dead man; and every living thing in the sea died.
4. Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.
5. And I heard the angel of the waters saying, "Righteous are You, who are and who were, O Holy One, because You judged these things;
6. for they poured out the blood of saints and prophets, and You have given them blood to drink. They deserve it."
7. And I heard the altar saying, "Yes, O Lord God, the Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments."
8. The fourth angel poured out his bowl upon the sun, and it was given to it to scorch men with fire.
9. Men were scorched with fierce heat; and they blasphemed the name of God who has the power over these plagues, and they did not repent so as to give Him glory.
10. Then the fifth angel poured out his bowl on the throne of the beast, and his kingdom became darkened; and they gnawed their tongues because of pain,
11. and they blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores; and they did not repent of their deeds.
12. The sixth angel poured out his bowl on the great river, the Euphrates; and its water was dried up, so that the way would be prepared for the kings from the east.
13. And I saw coming 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 like frogs;
14. for they are spirits of demons, performing signs, which go out to the kings of the whole world, to gather them together for the war of the great day of God, the Almighty.
15. ("Behold, I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame.")
16. And they gathered them together to the place which in Hebrew is called Har-Magedon.
17. Then the seventh angel poured out his bowl upon the air, and a loud voice came out of the temple from the throne, saying, "It is done."
18. And there were flashes of lightning and sounds and peals of thunder; and there was a great earthquake, such as there had not been since man came to be upon the earth, so great an earthquake was it, and so mighty.
19. The great city was split into three parts, and the cities of the nations fell. Babylon the great was remembered before God, to give her the cup of the wine of His fierce wrath.
20. And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found.
21. And huge hailstones, about one hundred pounds each, came down from heaven upon men; and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail, because its plague was extremely severe.
