The Lord Will Save His People

Zechariah 9

14 Then the LORD will be seen over them,
And u His arrow will go forth like lightning.
The Lord GOD will blow the trumpet,
And go v with whirlwinds from the south.
15 The LORD of hosts will w defend them;
They shall devour and subdue with slingstones.
They shall drink and roar as if with wine;
They shall be filled with blood like 1 basins,
Like the corners of the altar.

16 The LORD their God will x save them in that day,
As the flock of His people.
For y they shall be like the 2 jewels of a crown,
z Lifted like a banner over His land -
17 For a how great is 3 its goodness
And how great its b beauty!
c Grain shall make the young men thrive,
And new wine the young women.
