God's Strange Angel V: Looking for Evidence of the Trinity in the Tanakh

The Angel in Zechariah

In our last passage in this series for your consideration, the house of David "shall be like God, like the angel of the LORD."

Zechariah 12:7-10

7"And the LORD will give salvation to the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem may not surpass that of Judah. 8On that day the LORD will protect the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the feeblest among them on that day shall be like David, and the house of David shall be like God, like the angel of the LORD, going before them. 9And on that day I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

10"And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn.

With the LORD speaking, He says that He will be pierced while at the same time saying "they will morn for him."
