10Zechariah

1 Ask rain from Yahweh
in the season of the spring rain,
from Yahweh who makes the storm clouds,
who gives men showers of rain,
to every one the vegetation in the field.

The LORD promises deliverance. Zch.10.1-12
2 For the teraphim utter nonsense,
and the diviners see lies;
the dreamers tell false dreams,
and give empty consolation.
Therefore the people wander like sheep;
they are afflicted for want of a shepherd.

 
3 "My anger is hot against the shepherds,
and I will punish the leaders;
for Yahweh of hosts cares for his flock, the house of Judah,
and will make them like his proud steed in battle.

 
4 Out of them shall come the cornerstone,
out of them the tent peg,
out of them the battle bow,
out of them every ruler.

 
5 Together they shall be like mighty men in battle,
trampling the foe in the mud of the streets;
they shall fight because Yahweh is with them,
and they shall confound the riders on horses.

 
6 "I will strengthen the house of Judah,
and I will save the house of Joseph.
I will bring them back because I have compassion on them,
and they shall be as though I had not rejected them;
for I am Yahweh their God and I will answer them.

 
7 Then Ephraim shall become like a mighty warrior,
and their hearts shall be glad as with wine.
Their children shall see it and rejoice,
their hearts shall exult in Yahweh.

 
8 "I will signal for them and gather them in,
for I have redeemed them,
and they shall be as many as of old.

 
9 Though I scattered them among the nations,
yet in far countries they shall remember me,
and with their children they shall live and return.

 
10 I will bring them home from the land of Egypt,
and gather them from Assyria;
and I will bring them to the land of Gilead and to Lebanon,
till there is no room for them.

 
11 They shall pass through the sea of Egypt,
and the waves of the sea shall be smitten,
and all the depths of the Nile dried up.
The pride of Assyria shall be laid low,
and the sceptre of Egypt shall depart.

 
12 I will make them strong in Yahweh
and they shall glory in his name,"
says Yahweh.

Notes: This webpage enables you to select-a-version from the Bible versions held on the katapi bible database.
The katapi New Standard Bible is a very light revision of the RSV. The changes are: (1) In places where 'the LORD', 'O LORD' occurs in the RSV, (it represents the tetragrammaton - YHWH - which is in the hebrew text), I have printed 'YHWH' in black. The later vowel sounds I have shown in the colour gray;
(2) I have removed the quotation marks and hyphens that were used in so many names in the RSV as an aid to correct pronunciation. This now brings it in line with all other English versions, and makes any word-search more accurate.
(3) I have changed all (I hope!) of the RSV archaic language sections to modern.

The katapi New Study Bible reference section displays links to parallel passages, and to direct quotations by New Testament authors to Old Testament passages. Quotations of OT passages by NT authors can in most cases be viewed within their context of the OT passage as a whole, with the quoted text displayed, against a subdued background. Any mismatches, truncated verses, other mistakes ?
