The Coming of Zion's King
Rejoice greatly, O Daughter of Zion!
Shout, Daughter of Jerusalem!
See, your king comes to you,
righteous and having salvation,
gentle and riding on a donkey,
on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
I will take away the chariots from Ephraim
and the war-horses from Jerusalem,
and the battle bow will be broken.
He will proclaim peace to the nations.
His rule will extend from sea to sea
and from the River to the ends of the earth.
As for you, because of the
blood of my covenant with you,
I will free your prisoners
from the waterless pit.
Return to your fortress,
O prisoners of hope;
even now I announce that I will
restore twice as much to you.
Zechariah 9:9-12 NIV
