The call to conversion (Zech 1:2-1:3)

“Yahweh said.

‘Yahweh was very angry

With your ancestors.

Therefore,

Say to them.’

Thus says Yahweh of hosts.

‘Return to me!’

Says Yahweh of hosts.

‘I will return to you.’

Says Yahweh of hosts.”

The message of Yahweh to Zechariah was very simple.  Return to Yahweh!  Yahweh had been angry at their ancestors.  All they had to do was to return to him and he would return to them.  The Yahweh of hosts, via Zechariah, had a clear message of conversion or reconversion.
