"I will take away his blood out of his mouth, and his abominations from between his teeth." 9:7
The gospels (especially Mt 21:4-5 and Jn 12:14-15) claim that Jesus fulfils the prophecy of
Zech 9:9. But the next few verses (9:10-13) show that the person referred to in this
verse is a military king that would rule "from sea to sea". Since Jesus had neither an army or a kingdom, he could not have fulfilled this prophecy.
Israel shall never again be oppressed. Another obviously false prophecy; Israel has been occupied
many times since the time of Zechariah. 9:8
The river of Egypt (identified as the Nile in NIV, NASB, and RSV) shall dry up. This
has never occurred. 10:11
Matthew (27:9) quotes this verse, but incorrectly attributes it to Jeremiah.
God plans to expel the prophets and unclean spirits. Sounds like a good plan to me.
Someday prophets will be killed by their own parents by "thrusting him through when he prophesieth." 13:3
"The prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision." 13:4
Somday there will be a day that will have neither day nor night with a bright sunny evening. 14:7
"Living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea:
in summer and in winter shall it be." 14:8
