Zechariah 8:14-23New American Standard Bible (NASB)
14 “For thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘Just as I purposed to do harm to you when your fathers provoked Me to wrath,’ says the Lord of hosts, ‘and I have not relented,15 so I have again purposed in these days to do good to Jerusalem and to the house of Judah. Do not fear!16 These are the things which you should do: speak the truth to one another; judge with truth and judgment for peace in your [a]gates.17 Also let none of you devise evil in your heart against another, and do not love [b]perjury; for all these are what I hate,’ declares the Lord.”

20 “Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘It will yet be that peoples 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 the favor of the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts; [d]I will also go.”22 So many peoples and mighty nations will come to seek the Lord of hosts in Jerusalem and to entreat the favor of the Lord.’23 Thus says the Lord of hosts, ‘In those days ten men from all the [e]nations will [f]grasp the [g]garment of a Jew, saying, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”’”
