Zechariah 7:8-14New American Standard Bible (NASB)
8 Then the word of the Lord came to Zechariah saying,9 “Thus has the Lord of hosts said, ‘Dispense true justice and practice kindness and compassion each to his brother;10 and do not oppress the widow or the [a]orphan, the [b]stranger or the poor; and do not devise evil in your hearts against one another.’11 But they refused to pay attention and [c]turned a stubborn shoulder and [d]stopped their ears from hearing.12 They made their hearts like[e]flint [f]so that they could not hear the law and the words which the Lord of hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former prophets; therefore great wrath came from the Lord of hosts.13 And just as He called and they would not listen, so they called and I would not listen,” says the Lord of hosts;14 “but I [g]scattered them with a storm wind among all the nations whom they have not known. Thus the land is desolated behind them [h]so that no one went back and forth, for they made the pleasant land desolate.”
