Zechariah 10 (WEBP)

[1] Ask of Yahweh rain in the spring time, Yahweh who makes storm clouds, and he gives rain showers to everyone for the plants in the field.
[2] For the teraphim° have spoken vanity, and the diviners have seen a lie; and they have told false dreams. They comfort in vain. Therefore they go their way like sheep. They are oppressed, because there is no shepherd.
[3] My anger is kindled against the shepherds, and I will punish the male goats, for Yahweh of Armies has visited his flock, the house of Judah, and will make them as his majestic horse in the battle.
[4] From him will come the cornerstone, from him the tent peg, from him the battle bow, from him every ruler together.
[5] They will be as mighty men, treading down muddy streets in the battle. They will fight, because Yahweh is with them. The riders on horses will be confounded.
[6] “I will strengthen the house of Judah, and I will save the house of Joseph. I will bring them back, for I have mercy on them. They will be as though I had not cast them off, for I am Yahweh their God, and I will hear them.
[7] Ephraim will be like a mighty man, and their heart will rejoice as through wine. Yes, their children will see it and rejoice. Their heart will be glad in Yahweh.
[8] I will signal for them and gather them, for I have redeemed them. They will increase as they were before.
[9] I will sow them among the peoples. They will remember me in far countries. They will live with their children and will return.
[10] I will bring them again also out of the land of Egypt, and gather them out of Assyria. I will bring them into the land of Gilead and Lebanon; and there won’t be room enough for them.
[11] He will pass through the sea of affliction, and will strike the waves in the sea, and all the depths of the Nile will dry up; and the pride of Assyria will be brought down, and the scepter of Egypt will depart.
[12] I will strengthen them in Yahweh. They will walk up and down in his name,” says Yahweh.

Zechariah 10:2 teraphim were household idols that may have been associated with inheritance rights to the household property.

Zechariah 10 (KJVS)

[1] Ask H7592 (8798) ye of the LORD H3068 rain H4306 in the time H6256 of the latter rain H4456; [so] the LORD H3068 shall make H6213 (8802) bright clouds H2385, and give H5414 (8799) them showers H1653 of rain H4306, to every one H376 grass H6212 in the field H7704.
[2] For the idols H8655 have spoken H1696 (8765) vanity H205, and the diviners H7080 (8802) have seen H2372 (8804) a lie H8267, and have told H1696 (8762) false H7723 dreams H2472; they comfort H5162 (8762) in vain H1892: therefore they went H5265 (8804) their way as a flock H6629, they were troubled H6031 (8799), because [there was] no shepherd H7462 (8802).
[3] Mine anger H639 was kindled H2734 (8804) against the shepherds H7462 (8802), and I punished H6485 (8799) the goats H6260: for the LORD H3068 of hosts H6635 hath visited H6485 (8804) his flock H5739 the house H1004 of Judah H3063, and hath made H7760 (8804) them as his goodly H1935 horse H5483 in the battle H4421.
[4] Out of him came forth H3318 (8799) the corner H6438, out of him the nail H3489, out of him the battle H4421 bow H7198, out of him every oppressor H5065 (8802) together H3162.
[5] And they shall be as mighty H1368 [men], which tread down H947 (8802) [their enemies] in the mire H2916 of the streets H2351 in the battle H4421: and they shall fight H3898 (8738), because the LORD H3068 [is] with them, and the riders H7392 (8802) on horses H5483 shall be confounded H3001 (8689).
[6] And I will strengthen H1396 (8765) the house H1004 of Judah H3063, and I will save H3467 (8686) the house H1004 of Joseph H3130, and I will bring them again to place H3427 (8689) them; for I have mercy H7355 (8765) upon them: and they shall be as though H834 I had not cast them off H2186 (8804): for I [am] the LORD H3068 their God H430, and will hear H6030 (8799) them.
[7] And [they of] Ephraim H669 shall be like a mighty H1368 [man], and their heart H3820 shall rejoice H8055 (8804) as through wine H3196: yea, their children H1121 shall see H7200 (8799) [it], and be glad H8055 (8804); their heart H3820 shall rejoice H1523 (8799) in the LORD H3068.
[8] I will hiss H8319 (8799) for them, and gather H6908 (8762) them; for I have redeemed H6299 (8804) them: and they shall increase H7235 (8804) as they have increased H7235 (8804).
[9] And I will sow H2232 (8799) them among the people H5971: and they shall remember H2142 (8799) me in far countries H4801; and they shall live H2421 (8804) with their children H1121, and turn again H7725 (8804).
[10] I will bring them again H7725 (8689) also out of the land H776 of Egypt H4714, and gather H6908 (8762) them out of Assyria H804; and I will bring H935 (8686) them into the land H776 of Gilead H1568 and Lebanon H3844; and [place] shall not be found H4672 (8735) for them.
[11] And he shall pass through H5674 (8804) the sea H3220 with affliction H6869, and shall smite H5221 (8689) the waves H1530 in the sea H3220, and all the deeps H4688 of the river H2975 shall dry up H3001 (8689): and the pride H1347 of Assyria H804 shall be brought down H3381 (8717), and the sceptre H7626 of Egypt H4714 shall depart away H5493 (8799).
[12] And I will strengthen H1396 (8765) them in the LORD H3068; and they shall walk up and down H1980 (8691) in his name H8034, saith H5002 (8803) the LORD H3068.

Young’s Literal Translation

Zechariah 10 (YLT)

[1] They asked of Jehovah rain in a time of latter rain, Jehovah is making lightnings, And rain in showers He doth give to them. To each-the herb in the field.
[2] Because the teraphim did speak iniquity, And the diviners have seen a falsehood, And dreams of the vanity they speak, With vanity they give comfort, Therefore they have journeyed as a flock, They are afflicted, for there is no shepherd.
[3] Against the shepherds did Mine anger burn, And against the he-goats I lay a charge, For inspected hath Jehovah of Hosts His flock, the house of Judah, And set them as His beauteous horse in battle.
[4] From him is a corner-stone, From him a nail, from him a battle-bow, From him goeth forth every exactor together.
[5] And they have been as heroes, Treading in mire of out-places in battle, And they have fought, for Jehovah is with them, And have put to shame riders of horses.
[6] And I have made mighty the house of Judah, And the house of Joseph I do save, And I have caused them to dwell, for I have loved them, And they have been as if I had not cast them off, For I am Jehovah their God, And I answer them.
[7] And Ephraim hath been as a hero, And rejoiced hath their heart as wine, And their sons see, and they have rejoiced, Rejoice doth their heart in Jehovah.
[8] I hist for them, and I gather them, For I have redeemed them, And they have multiplied as they did multiply.
[9] And I sow them among peoples, And in far-off places they remember Me, And they have lived with their sons, And they have turned back.
[10] And I have brought them back from the land of Egypt, And from Asshur I do gather them, And unto the land of Gilead and Lebanon I do bring them in, And there is not found for them space.
[11] And He hath passed over through the sea, And hath pressed and smitten billows in the sea, And dried up have been all depths of a flood, And brought down hath been the excellency of Asshur, And the rod of Egypt doth turn aside.
[12] And I have made them mighty in Jehovah, And in His name they walk up and down, An affirmation of Jehovah!
