Scripture Text (NRSV)

Zechariah 9:9-12


9:9 Rejoice greatly, O daughter Zion! Shout aloud, O daughter Jerusalem! Lo, your king comes to you; triumphant and victorious is he, humble and riding on a donkey, on a colt, the foal of a donkey.

9:10 He will cut off the chariot from Ephraim and the war horse from Jerusalem; and the battle bow shall be cut off, and he shall command peace to the nations; his dominion shall be from sea to sea, and from the River to the ends of the earth.

9:11 As for you also, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit.

9:12 Return to your stronghold, O prisoners of hope; today I declare that I will restore to you double.



Anybody notice the songs:
Rejoice, rejoice, rejoice greatly! (in Handel's Messiah). And in the gospel: Come unto me, all ye who labor . . .

More Messiah. And at Christmas I preached "God . . . with us!" Something sung to us stays with us.
