Zechariah 1:14 & 17
14 So the angel who spoke with me said to me ³Proclaim saying Thus says the Lord of Host: I am zealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with great zeal. 17 Again proclaim saying Thus says the Lord of Host: ³My cities shall again spread out through prosperity; The Lord will again comfort Zion, And will again choose Jerusalem´

Zechariah 3:1-4
‡ he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right hand to accuse him. 2The LORD said to Satan, "The LORD rebuke you, Satan! Indeed, the LORD who has chosen Jerusalem rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?" ‡ 3Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments and standing before the angel. ‡ 4He spoke and said to those who were standing before him, saying, "Remove the filthy garments from him " Again he said to him, "See, I have taken your iniquity away from you and will clothe you with festal robes."

Hebrews 12:1
1

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
