    The LORD Promises Deliverance
    1Ask the LORD for rain in the spring of the year. It is the LORD who sends rain clouds and showers, making the fields green for everyone. 2People consult idols and fortune-tellers, but the answers they get are lies and nonsense. Some interpret dreams, but only mislead you; the comfort they give is useless. So the people wander about like lost sheep. They are in trouble because they have no leader.
    3The LORD says, “I am angry with those foreigners who rule my people, and I am going to punish them. The people of Judah are mine, and I, the LORD Almighty, will take care of them. They will be my powerful war horses. 4From among them will come rulers, leaders, and commanders to govern my people. 5The people of Judah will be victorious like soldiers who trample their enemies into the mud of the streets. They will fight because the LORD is with them, and they will defeat even the enemy horsemen.

    6“I will make the people of Judah strong;
    I will rescue the people of Israel.
    I will have compassion on them
    and bring them all back home.
    They will be as though I had never rejected them.
    I am the LORD their God; I will answer their prayers.
    7The people of Israel will be strong like soldiers,
    happy like men who have been drinking wine.
    Their descendants will remember this victory
    and be glad because of what the LORD has done.

    8“I will call my people
    and gather them together.
    I will rescue them
    and make them as numerous as they used to be.
    9Though I have scattered them among the nations,
    yet in far-off places, they will remember me.
    They and their children will survive
    and return home together.
    10From Egypt and Assyria I will bring them home
    and settle them in their own country.
    I will settle them in Gilead and Lebanon also;
    the whole land will be filled with people.
    11When they pass through their sea of trouble,
    I, the LORD, will strike the waves,
    and the depths of the Nile will go dry.
    Proud Assyria will be humbled,
    and mighty Egypt will lose her power.
    12I will make my people strong;
    they will worship and obey me.”
    The LORD has spoken.​

    How does this scripture apply to your title? Legitimately curious

    I wasn't thinking about money profits. But one can profit from the advice that the Prophet gives. And I've been reading Zecharaiah for a while. Taking my time to reflect on what he had to say.
