"I am going to make Jerusalem a cup that sends all the surrounding peoples reeling. Judah will be besieged as well as Jerusalem.
King James Bible
Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
American Standard Version
behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reeling unto all the peoples round about, and upon Judah also shall it be in the siege against Jerusalem.
Young's Literal Translation
Lo, I am making Jerusalem a cup of reeling To all the peoples round about, And also against Judah it is, In the siege against Jerusalem.
Zechariah 12:2 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Jerusalem a cup of trembling - The Babylonians, who captivated and ruined the Jews, shall in their turn be ruined.
I incline to think that what is spoken in this chapter about the Jews and Jerusalem, belongs to the "glory of the latter times."
Shall be in the siege - This may refer to some war against the Church of Christ, such as that mentioned Revelation 20:9.
