Zechariah 14:9, 16-19 – The LORD, King over All the Earth

BIBLE TEXT

Zechariah 14:9, 16-19

SUMMARY

Zechariah’s oracles culminate with a description of the day of the LORD, when “the LORD will become king over all the earth.”

ANALYSIS

Zechariah’s primary task is the rebuilding of the temple, with the restoration of covenant worship and obedience to the law among the returning Jewish exiles. However, his immediate goal of a rebuilt temple and a restored Jerusalem broadens into a sweeping final oracle where the God of Israel will be acknowledged as God and king over all the earth. People of all nations will look to Jerusalem as the center of worship.
