Go to Zechariah 12:4 In that day, says Yehuveh, I will confuse everyone who is under someone else’s control, and all who control others will go mad: and I will examine the house of Judah, and will blind every person who allows another to control him.
Go to Zechariah 12:5 And the anointed leaders of Judah will say in their heart, The strength of the inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be [solely] in Yehuveh of hosts their Elohim.
Go to Zechariah 12:6 In that day will I make these anointed leaders of Judah like a cleansing bowl of intense conviction among the people, a source of understand in pure fervor among the group; and they shall bring all the people to completion in both spiritual and practical wisdom: and Jerusalem itself shall again be inhabited.
Go to Zechariah 12:7 Yehuveh also shall educate the established leaders of Judah foremost, that the high esteem of the house of David and the high esteem of the inhabitants of Jerusalem never overshadow [Israel’s and the world’s] high regard for Judah.

Go to Zechariah 12:9 It will occur in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.
Go to Zechariah 12:10 And I will pour upon the royal lineage of David, and upon everyone living in Jerusalem, the spirit of harmony and of appeal: and they will look to Me with heart-piercing conviction, and will mourn for their wrongs, as one cries for his only son, and be in bitterness over them [their abominations and iniquities], as one is for his firstborn.
