Zechariah 2:6-13 Living Bible
6-7 “Come, flee from the land of the north, from Babylon,” says the Lord to all his exiles there; “I scattered you to the winds, but I will bring you back again. Escape, escape to Zion now!” says the Lord.
8 “The Lord of Glory has sent me against the nations that oppressed you, for he who harms you sticks his finger in Jehovah’s eye!
9 “I will smash them with my fist and their slaves will be their rulers! Then you will know it was the Lord Almighty who sent me. 10 Sing, Jerusalem, and rejoice! For I have come to live among you,” says the Lord. 11-12 “At that time many nations will be converted to the Lord, and they too shall be my people; I will live among them all. Then you will know it was the Lord Almighty who sent me to you. And Judah shall be the Lord’s inheritance in the Holy Land, for God shall once more choose to bless Jerusalem.
13 “Be silent, all mankind, before the Lord, for he has come to earth from heaven, from his holy home.”
In his third vision, Zechariah prophesies the coming of the God-man to live among the people, those who the Lord told to flee Babylon. The bringing together of many people groups from lands afar to become one in Christ (Ephesians Chapter 2).
The prophesy of Zechariah comes to fruition in the New Testament. In addition, the people will come from different lands. All of this should confirm the fact that all people are God’s people and that we should love them just as he loves us—unconditionally.
