Zechariah 8:23

8:23 languages of the nations. In that day, the Lord has said: “I will gather all nations and tongues; and they shall come, and see my glory” (Isaiah 66:18). Not only will men of all languages come to Jerusalem, but even their separate languages will be forgotten, for God has also said: “Then will I turn to the people a pure language [almost certainly the Hebrew language, in which He first gave forth His Word], that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve Him with one consent” (Zephaniah 3:9). The number ten undoubtedly is merely representative of all still living—perhaps the remaining Gentile population will be only ten times the Jewish population.
