“This is what Yahweh of Armies says: If you will walk in my ways and if you will follow my instructions, then you also will judge my house, and will also keep my courts, and I will give you a place to walk among these who are standing here. Bible other translations

“if you will walk in my ways.” The blessings and privileges of God for Israel were always given upon the condition that she would obey God, but sadly she did not. Judah had been conquered by the Babylonians but allowed to return to her homeland, Israel, after 70 years of captivity. But Israel rejected her Messiah when he came and she was conquered by the Romans, who, in 70 AD destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple like the Babylonians had done in 586 BC. The Temple was rebuilt in the lifetime of Zechariah, but since the time that the Romans destroyed it, the Temple has not been rebuilt.
