Zechariah 9:9-12Contemporary English Version (CEV)
The Lord Tells about the Coming King
9 Everyone in Jerusalem, celebrate and shout! Your king has won a victory, and he is coming to you. He is humble and rides on a donkey; he comes on the colt of a donkey. 10 I, the Lord, will take away war chariots and horses from Israel[a] and Jerusalem. Bows that were made for battle will be broken. I will bring peace to nations, and your king will rule from sea to sea. His kingdom will reach from the Euphrates River across the earth.
The Lord Promises To Rescue Captives
11 When I made a sacred agreement with you, my people, we sealed it with blood.[b] Now some of you are captives in waterless pits, but I will come to your rescue 12 and offer you hope. Return to your fortress, because today I will reward you with twice what you had.
