Zechariah 1:14-17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
Oracular Response. 14 The angel who spoke with me then said to me, Proclaim: Thus says the Lord of hosts:
I am jealous for Jerusalem
and for Zion intensely jealous.
15 I am consumed with anger
toward the complacent nations;
When I was only a little angry,
they compounded the disaster.
16 Therefore, thus says the Lord:
I return to Jerusalem in mercy;
my house will be rebuilt there—oracle of the Lord of hosts—
and a measuring line will be stretched over Jerusalem.
17 Proclaim further: Thus says the Lord of hosts:
My cities will again overflow with prosperity;
the Lord will again comfort Zion,
and will again choose Jerusalem.
