Zechariah 12


12:1 The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the
 LORD, who stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the
 foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within
 him.
12:2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling to all the
 people around, when they shall be in the siege both against
 Judah [and] against Jerusalem.
12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone
 for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut
 in pieces, though all the people of the earth be assembled
 against it.
12:4 In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with
 astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open my
 eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the
 people with blindness.
12:5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The
 inhabitants of Jerusalem [shall be] my strength in the LORD of
 hosts their God.
12:6 In that day will I make the governors of Judah like a
 hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a
 sheaf; and they shall devour all the people around, on the
 right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited
 again in her own place, [even] in Jerusalem.
12:7 The LORD also will save the tents of Judah first, that the
 glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of
 Jerusalem may not magnify [themselves] against Judah.
12:8 In that day will the LORD defend the inhabitants of
 Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall
 be as David; and the house of David [shall be] as God, as the
 angel of the LORD before them.
12:9 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek
 to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
12:10 And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the
 inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of
 supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have
 pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for
 [his] only [son], and shall be in bitterness for him, as one
 that is in bitterness for [his] first-born.
12:11 In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem,
 as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
12:12 And the land shall mourn, every family apart; the family
 of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family
 of the house of Nathan apart, and their wives apart;
12:13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives
 apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;
12:14 All the families that remain, every family apart, and
 their wives apart.
