Chapter 10 10 Ask the Lord for rain in the springtime;     it is the Lord who sends the thunderstorms. He gives showers of rain to all people,     and plants of the field to everyone. 2 The idols speak deceitfully,     diviners see visions that lie; they tell dreams that are false,     they give comfort in vain. Therefore the people wander like sheep     oppressed for lack of a [...]

Zechariah 6

Chapter 6 6 I looked up again, and there before me were four chariots coming out from between two mountains—mountains of bronze. 2 The first chariot had red horses, the second black, 3 the third white, and the fourth dappled—all of them powerful. 4 I asked the angel who was speaking to me, “What are these, my lord?” 5 The angel answered me, “These are [...]
