Zech 9:1 The burden of the word of the Lord in the land of Hadrach, (now part of Syria), and Damascus shall be the rest thereof:
when the eyes of man (in all the western world are upon the Jews) as of all the tribes of Israel, (they) shall be toward the

3 And Tyrus, (Lebanon), did build herself a strong hold, and heaped up silver as the dust, and fine gold as the mire of
4 Behold, (in the last days), the Lord will cast her out, and he will smite her power in the sea; and she shall be devoured
5 Ashkelon, (inside Israel), shall see it, and fear; Gaza also shall see it, and be very sorrowful, and Ekron, (vanished
town north of Gaza), for her expectation shall be ashamed; and the king (or leader of Hamas) shall perish from Gaza, and Ashkelon
shall not be inhabited.
6 And a bastard (i.e.; 5th century BCE residents of Jerusalem are said to have married women from Ashdod, and half of
the children of these unions were reportedly unable to understand Hebrew), shall dwell in Ashdod, and I will cut off the pride
of the Philistines (who previously had resided there).
7 And I will take away his blood out of his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth: but he that remaineth,
even he, shall be for our God, (The Christ, whom we discovered was Elijah, returned in 32AD), and he shall be as a governor
in Judah, and Ekron as a Jebusite, (one of the most ancient people living before David's conquest of Jerusalem).
8 And I will encamp about mine house, (the Temple area in Jerusalem), because of the army, because of him that passeth

12 Turn you to the strong hold, (trust in me), ye prisoners of (only) hope: even to day do I declare that I will render

13 When I have bent Judah for me, (in modern day Israel), filled the bow with Ephraim, (mixed amongst the Christians),
and raised up thy sons, O Zion (in Israel), against thy sons, O Greece, (in Europe), and made thee as the sword of a mighty
14 And the Lord shall be seen over them, and his arrow shall go forth as the lightning: and the Lord God shall blow the
trumpet, and shall go with whirlwinds of the south.
15 The Lord of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones (as if David, himself); and

16 And the Lord their God shall save them in that day as the flock of his people: for they shall be as the stones of a
