Zechariah 4:6
2 ב
וַיַּעַן וַיֹּאמֶר אֵלַי לֵאמֹר זֶה דְּבַר יְיָ אֶל זְרֻבָּבֶל לֵאמֹר לֹא בְחַיִל וְלֹא בְכֹחַ כִּי אִם בְּרוּחִי אָמַר יְיָ צְבָאוֹת
Then he explained to me as follows: This is the word of Adonai to Zerubbabel: "Not by might, nor by power, but by My spirit" said Adonai. [JPS translation edited for gender neutrality]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

1. Are "might and power" ever necessary?

2. Why is this verse traditionally associated with Chanukah--a holiday commemorating a military victory?

3. How have Jewish attitudes toward might and power changed since the creation of the state of Israel?
