Zechariah 10:1-3 World English Bible (WEB)

10 Ask of Yahweh rain in the spring time,
    Yahweh who makes storm clouds,
    and he gives rain showers to everyone for the plants in the field.
For the teraphim[a] have spoken vanity,
    and the diviners have seen a lie;
    and they have told false dreams.
They comfort in vain.
    Therefore they go their way like sheep.
    They are oppressed, because there is no shepherd.
My anger is kindled against the shepherds,
    and I will punish the male goats;
    For Yahweh of Armies has visited his flock, the house of Judah,
    and will make them as his majestic horse in the battle.


  1. Zechariah 10:2 teraphim were household idols that may have been associated with inheritance rights to the household property.

Zechariah 10:1-3 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

God Will Bless Judah and Ephraim

10 Ask rain from the Lord at the time of the spring rain—

The Lord who makes the [a]storm clouds;
And He will give them showers of rain, vegetation in the field to each man.
For the teraphim speak [b]iniquity,
And the diviners see [c]lying visions
And tell false dreams;
They comfort in vain.
Therefore the people [d]wander like sheep,
They are afflicted, because there is no shepherd.
“My anger is kindled against the shepherds,
And I will punish the [e]male goats;
For the Lord of hosts has visited His flock, the house of Judah,
And will make them like His majestic horse in battle.
