The Coming Peace and Prosperity of Zion

1 Then the word of the LORD of hosts came, saying, 2 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, `I am exceedingly R180 jealous for Zion, yes, with great wrath I am jealous for her.' 3 "Thus says the LORD, `I will return to Zion and will dwell R181 in the midst of Jerusalem. Then Jerusalem will be called the City of Truth, R182 and the mountain of the LORD of hosts will be called the Holy Mountain.' 4 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, `Old R183 men and old women will again sit in the streets F58 of Jerusalem, each man with his staff in his hand because of age. F59 5 `And the streets F60 of the city will be filled with boys R184 and girls playing in its streets.' F60 6 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, `If it is too R185 F61 difficult in the sight of the remnant of this people in those days, will it also be too R186 F61 difficult in My sight?' declares the LORD of hosts. 7 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, `Behold, I am going to save My people from the land of the east R187 F62 and from the land of the west; F63 8 and I will bring R188 them back and they will live R189 in the midst of Jerusalem; and they shall be My R190 people, and I will be their God in truth F64 and righteousness.'

9 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, `Let your hands be strong, R191 you who are listening in these days to these words from the mouth of the prophets, R192 those who spoke in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, to the end that the temple might be built. 10 `For before those days there was no R193 wage for man or any wage for animal; and for him who went out or came in there was no peace R194 F65 because of his F66 enemies, and I set R195 all men one against another. 11 `But now I will not R196 treat F67 the remnant of this people as in the former days,' declares the LORD of hosts. 12 `For there will be peace R197 for the seed: the vine will yield its fruit, the land will yield its produce and the heavens will give their dew; R198 and I will cause the remnant of this people to inherit all R199 these things. 13 `It will come about that just as you were a curse R200 among the nations, O house of Judah and house of Israel, so I will save you that you may become a blessing. R201 Do not fear; let your hands R202 be strong.'

14 "For thus says the LORD of hosts, `Just as I purposed R203 to do harm to you when your fathers provoked Me to wrath,' says the LORD of hosts, `and I have not relented, R204 15 so I have again purposed in these days to do R205 good to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. Do R206 not fear! 16 `These are the things which you should do: speak the truth R207 to one another; judge R208 with truth and judgment for peace in your gates. F68 17 `Also let none of you devise R209 evil in your heart against another, and do not love perjury; R210 F69 for all these are what I hate,' R211 declares the LORD."

18 Then the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying, 19 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, `The fast of the fourth, R212 the fast of the fifth, R213 the fast of the seventh R214 and the fast of the tenth R215 months will become joy, R216 gladness, and cheerful F70 feasts for the house of Judah; so love R217 truth and peace.'

20 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, `It will yet be that peoples R218 will come, even the inhabitants of many cities. 21 `The inhabitants of one will go to another, saying, "Let us go at once to entreat R219 the favor of the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts; I F71 will also go." 22 `So many R220 peoples and mighty nations will come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat R221 the favor of the LORD.' 23 "Thus says the LORD of hosts, `In those days ten men from all the nations F72 will grasp R222 F73 the garment F74 of a Jew, saying, "Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.""'
