The Coming King(A)

“Rejoice (B)greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, (C)your King is coming to you;
He is just and having salvation,
Lowly and riding on a donkey,
A colt, the foal of a donkey.
10 I (D)will cut off the chariot from Ephraim
And the horse from Jerusalem;
The (E)battle bow shall be cut off.
He shall speak peace to the nations;
His dominion shall be (F)‘from sea to sea,
And from the River to the ends of the earth.’

God Will Save His People

11 “As for you also,
Because of the blood of your covenant,
I will set your (G)prisoners free from the waterless pit.
12 Return to the stronghold,
(H)You prisoners of hope.
Even today I declare
That I will restore (I)double to you.
13 For I have bent Judah, My bow,
Fitted the bow with Ephraim,
And raised up your sons, O Zion,
Against your sons, O Greece,
And made you like the sword of a mighty man.”

14 Then the Lord will be seen over them,
And (J)His arrow will go forth like lightning.
The Lord God will blow the trumpet,
And go (K)with whirlwinds from the south.
15 The Lord of hosts will (L)defend them;
They shall devour and subdue with slingstones.
They shall drink and roar as if with wine;
They shall be filled with blood like [a]basins,
Like the corners of the altar.
16 The Lord their God will (M)save them in that day,
As the flock of His people.
For (N)they shall be like the [b]jewels of a crown,
(O)Lifted like a banner over His land—
17 For (P)how great is [c]its goodness
And how great its (Q)beauty!
(R)Grain shall make the young men thrive,
And new wine the young women.
