1 A proclamation. The word of Yahweh about Israel (and also about Judah). Yahweh, who spread out the heaven and founded the earth and formed the human spirit within, declares:
Isa 42:5 Isa 57:16 Jer 51:15 Isa 48:13 Isa 44:24 Heb 1:10-12 Heb 12:9
2 'Look, I shall make Jerusalem a cup to set all the surrounding peoples reeling. (That will be at the time of the siege of Jerusalem.)
Zech 14:14 Isa 51:22-23 Ps 75:8 Isa 51:17 Hab 2:16 Jer 8:14 Jer 25:15
3 'When that day comes, I shall make Jerusalem a stone too heavy for all the peoples to lift; all those who try to lift it will hurt themselves severely, although all the nations of the world will be massed against her.
Matt 21:44 Dan 2:34-35 Zech 14:2-4 Dan 2:44-45 Luke 20:18 Zech 13:1 Zech 14:6
4 When that day comes -- declares Yahweh -- I shall strike all the horses with panic and their riders with madness. And I shall strike all the peoples with blindness. (But I shall keep watch over Judah.)
Deut 28:28 Zech 12:3 1Kgs 8:29 2Chr 6:20 2Chr 6:40 2Chr 7:15 2Kgs 6:14
5 Then the rulers of Judah will say to themselves, "The strength of the inhabitants of Jerusalem lies in Yahweh Sabaoth their God."
Isa 28:6 Ps 18:32 Zech 10:12 2Cor 12:9-10 Ezek 45:8-9 Isa 1:10 Isa 1:23
6 When that day comes, I shall make the rulers of Judah like a brazier burning in a pile of wood, like a torch flaming in a sheaf; and they will devour all the peoples round them to right and left. And Jerusalem will be full of people as before, where she stands (in Jerusalem).
Obad 1:18 Zech 2:4 Dan 2:34-35 Dan 2:44-45 Ezek 48:30-35 Isa 9:20 Isa 10:16-18
7 Yahweh will first save the tents of Judah, so that the glory of the House of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not increase at Judah's expense.
1Cor 1:26-31 2Cor 4:7-12 Amos 9:11 Isa 2:11-17 Isa 23:9 Jas 2:5 Jas 4:6
8 When that day comes, Yahweh will protect the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and the frailest of them will be like David when that day comes, and the House of David will be like God, like the angel of Yahweh, at their head.
Mic 7:8 Hos 3:5 Joel 3:10 Joel 3:16-17 Mic 5:2-4 Mic 7:16 Zech 9:15-16
9 'When that day comes, I shall set about destroying all the nations who advance against Jerusalem.
Zech 14:2-3 Hag 2:22 Isa 54:17 Zech 12:2
10 But over the House of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem I shall pour out a spirit of grace and prayer, and they will look to me. They will mourn for the one whom they have pierced as though for an only child, and weep for him as people weep for a first-born child.
Rev 1:7 Jer 6:26 Ezek 39:29 Amos 8:10 Joel 2:28-29 Acts 2:33 Acts 10:45
11 When that day comes, the mourning in Jerusalem will be as great as the mourning for Hadad Rimmon in the Plain of Megiddo.
2Chr 35:24 2Kgs 23:29
12 And the country will mourn clan by clan: The clan of the House of David by itself, and their women by themselves; the clan of the House of Nathan by itself, and their women by themselves;
2Sam 5:14 Luke 3:31 Matt 24:30 Rev 1:7 Zech 7:3 1Cor 7:5 2Sam 7:2-4
13 the clan of the House of Levi by itself, and their women by themselves; the clan of the House of Shimei by itself, and their women by themselves;
1Chr 3:19 1Chr 4:27 1Chr 23:7 1Chr 23:10 1Kgs 1:8 2Chr 29:14 2Sam 16:5
14 all the rest of the clans, every clan by itself, and their women by themselves.'
