Zechariah 5-8; Romans 15
Zechariah 5
1)Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll.
2)And he said unto me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof is twenty cubits, and the breadth thereof ten cubits.
3)Then said he unto me, This is the curse that goeth forth over the face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off as on this side according to it; and every one that sweareth shall be cut off as on that side according to it.
4)I will bring it forth, saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
5)Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.
6)And I said, What is it? And he said, This is an ephah that goeth forth. He said moreover, This is their resemblance through all the earth.
7)And, behold, there was lifted up a talent of lead: and this is a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah.
8)And he said, This is wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.
9)Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out two women, and the wind was in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven.
10)Then said I to the angel that talked with me, Whither do these bear the ephah?
11)And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.
Zechariah 8
1)Again the word of the LORD of hosts came to me, saying,
2)Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury.
3)Thus saith the LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain.
4)Thus saith the LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every man with his staff in his hand for very age.
5)And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and girls playing in the streets thereof.
6)Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the LORD of hosts.
7)Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and from the west country;
8)And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.
9)Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by the mouth of the prophets, which were in the day that the foundation of the house of the LORD of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built.
10)For before these days there was no hire for man, nor any hire for beast; neither was there any peace to him that went out or came in because of the affliction: for I set all men every one against his neighbour.
11)But now I will not be unto the residue of this people as in the former days, saith the LORD of hosts.
12)For the seed shall be prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these things.
13)And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, but let your hands be strong.
14)For thus saith the LORD of hosts; As I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to wrath, saith the LORD of hosts, and I repented not:
15)So again have I thought in these days to do well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not.
16)These are the things that ye shall do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in your gates:
17)And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no false oath: for all these are things that I hate, saith the LORD.
18)And the word of the LORD of hosts came unto me, saying,
19)Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The fast of the fourth month, and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth and peace.
20)Thus saith the LORD of hosts; It shall yet come to pass, that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities:
21)And the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I will go also.
22)Yea, many people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before the LORD.
23)Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days it shall come to pass, that ten men shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard that God is with you.
Romans 15
1)We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves.
2)Let every one of us please his neighbour for his good to edification.
3)For even Christ pleased not himself; but, as it is written, The reproaches of them that reproached thee fell on me.
4)For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.
5)Now the God of patience and consolation grant you to be likeminded one toward another according to Christ Jesus:
6)That ye may with one mind and one mouth glorify God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
7)Wherefore receive ye one another, as Christ also received us to the glory of God.
8)Now I say that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promises made unto the fathers:
9)And that the Gentiles might glorify God for his mercy; as it is written, For this cause I will confess to thee among the Gentiles, and sing unto thy name.
10)And again he saith, Rejoice, ye Gentiles, with his people.
11)And again, Praise the Lord, all ye Gentiles; and laud him, all ye people.
12)And again, Esaias saith, There shall be a root of Jesse, and he that shall rise to reign over the Gentiles; in him shall the Gentiles trust.
13)Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.
14)And I myself also am persuaded of you, my brethren, that ye also are full of goodness, filled with all knowledge, able also to admonish one another.
15)Nevertheless, brethren, I have written the more boldly unto you in some sort, as putting you in mind, because of the grace that is given to me of God,
16)That I should be the minister of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles, ministering the gospel of God, that the offering up of the Gentiles might be acceptable, being sanctified by the Holy Ghost.
17)I have therefore whereof I may glory through Jesus Christ in those things which pertain to God.
18)For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,
19)Through mighty signs and wonders, by the power of the Spirit of God; so that from Jerusalem, and round about unto Illyricum, I have fully preached the gospel of Christ.
20)Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man's foundation:
21)But as it is written, To whom he was not spoken of, they shall see: and they that have not heard shall understand.
22)For which cause also I have been much hindered from coming to you.
23)But now having no more place in these parts, and having a great desire these many years to come unto you;
24)Whensoever I take my journey into Spain, I will come to you: for I trust to see you in my journey, and to be brought on my way thitherward by you, if first I be somewhat filled with your company.
25)But now I go unto Jerusalem to minister unto the saints.
26)For it hath pleased them of Macedonia and Achaia to make a certain contribution for the poor saints which are at Jerusalem.
27)It hath pleased them verily; and their debtors they are. For if the Gentiles have been made partakers of their spiritual things, their duty is also to minister unto them in carnal things.
28)When therefore I have performed this, and have sealed to them this fruit, I will come by you into Spain.
29)And I am sure that, when I come unto you, I shall come in the fulness of the blessing of the gospel of Christ.
30)Now I beseech you, brethren, for the Lord Jesus Christ's sake, and for the love of the Spirit, that ye strive together with me in your prayers to God for me;
31)That I may be delivered from them that do not believe in Judaea; and that my service which I have for Jerusalem may be accepted of the saints;
32)That I may come unto you with joy by the will of God, and may with you be refreshed.
33)Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen.
