Abstract This paper focuses on the relationship between Israel and the nations in Haggai and Zechariah 1-8. Both prophets are motivated by the hope for a process of universalisation, but their message was later subjected to editing. A Deuteronomistic editor was of the opinion that the Diaspora from Judah was a punishment by YHWH (2:10), but that YHWH will in the future restore Israel to its rightful fate. Another editor speaks in Zech 2:14-15 and 8:20-22 of an eschatological pilgrimage of the nations to YHWH, the God of Zion in Jerusalem. Then the nations will become a part of the people of YHWH (2:15). The last expression of the theology of the nations in Zechariah 1-8 can be found in 8:23, where it is said that ten men (representatives?) from nations of all languages will say to a Yehudite: "Let us go with you ..." Does this represent a reduction of the universal and eschatological hope expressed in 2:15 and 8:20-22? Is the advent of an age of "proselytism" being announced?
