Him Whom They Have Pierced

10 “And (A)I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and (B)pleas for mercy, so that, (C)when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, (D)they shall mourn for him, (E)as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn. 11 (F)On that day (G)the mourning in Jerusalem will be as great (H)as the mourning for Hadad-rimmon in the plain of Megiddo. 12 The land shall mourn, (I)each family[a] by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of (J)Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; 13 the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of (K)the Shimeites by itself, and their wives by themselves; 14 and all the families that are left, each by itself, and their wives by themselves.

Mourning for the Pierced One

10 (A)“And I will pour on the house of David and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem the Spirit of grace and supplication; then they will (B)look on Me whom they pierced. Yes, they will mourn for Him (C)as one mourns for his only son, and grieve for Him as one grieves for a firstborn. 11 In that day there shall be a great (D)mourning in Jerusalem, (E)like the mourning at Hadad Rimmon in the plain of [a]Megiddo. 12 (F)And the land shall mourn, every family by itself: the family of the house of David by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of the house of (G)Nathan by itself, and their wives by themselves; 13 the family of the house of Levi by itself, and their wives by themselves; the family of Shimei by itself, and their wives by themselves; 14 all the families that remain, every family by itself, and their wives by themselves.
