Zechariah 9:9-13 World English Bible (WEB)

Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion!
    Shout, daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your King comes to you!
    He is righteous, and having salvation;
    lowly, and riding on a donkey,
    even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
10 I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim,
    and the horse from Jerusalem;
and the battle bow will be cut off;
    and he will speak peace to the nations:
    and his dominion will be from sea to sea,
    and from the River to the ends of the earth.
11 As for you also,
    because of the blood of your covenant,
    I have set free your prisoners from the pit in which is no water.
12 Turn to the stronghold, you prisoners of hope!
    Even today I declare that I will restore double to you.
13 For indeed I bend Judah as a bow for me.
    I have filled the bow with Ephraim;
and I will stir up your sons, Zion,
    against your sons, Greece,
    and will make you like the sword of a mighty man.

Zechariah 9:9-13 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion!
Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, your king is coming to you;
He is [a]just and endowed with salvation,
Humble, and mounted on a donkey,
Even on a colt, the [b]foal of a donkey.
10 I will cut off the chariot from Ephraim
And the horse from Jerusalem;
And the bow of war will be cut off.
And He will speak peace to the nations;
And His dominion will be from sea to sea,
And from the [c]River to the ends of the earth.

Deliverance of Judah and Ephraim

11 As for you also, because of the blood of My covenant with you,
I have set your prisoners free from the [d]waterless pit.
12 Return to the [e]stronghold, O prisoners [f]who have the hope;
This very day I am declaring that I will restore double to you.
13 For I will bend Judah [g]as My bow,
I will fill the bow with Ephraim.
And I will stir up your sons, O Zion, against your sons, O Greece;
And I will make you like a warrior’s sword.
