Zechariah 1:1-2 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)


He exhorteth the people to return to the Lord, and to eschew the wickedness of their fathers. 16 He signifieth the restitution of Jerusalem and the Temple.

In the eighth month of the second year of [a]Darius, came the word of the Lord unto [b]Zechariah the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the Prophet, saying,

The Lord hath been [c]sore displeased with your fathers.


  1. Zechariah 1:1 Who was the son of Histaspis.
  2. Zechariah 1:1 This was not that Zechariah, whereof is mentioned 2 Chron. 24:20, but had the same name, and is called the son of Berechiah, as he was, because he came of those progenitors, as of Joiada or Berechiah, and Iddo.
  3. Zechariah 1:2 He speaketh this to fear them with God’s judgments, that they should not provoke him as their fathers had done, whom he so grievously punished.
