The Coming of Zion’s King

Rejoice greatly, Daughter Zion!(A)
    Shout,(B) Daughter Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,(C)
    righteous and victorious,(D)
lowly and riding on a donkey,(E)
    on a colt, the foal of a donkey.(F)
10 I will take away the chariots from Ephraim
    and the warhorses from Jerusalem,
    and the battle bow will be broken.(G)
He will proclaim peace(H) to the nations.
    His rule will extend from sea to sea
    and from the River[a] to the ends of the earth.(I)
11 As for you, because of the blood of my covenant(J) with you,
    I will free your prisoners(K) from the waterless pit.(L)
12 Return to your fortress,(M) you prisoners of hope;
    even now I announce that I will restore twice(N) as much to you.
13 I will bend Judah as I bend my bow(O)
    and fill it with Ephraim.(P)
I will rouse your sons, Zion,
    against your sons, Greece,(Q)
    and make you like a warrior’s sword.(R)
