Zechariah 12:10 is interpreted by the gospel as being about the people who were to be punished, who said, "Let his blood be on our heads". That came true when they saw the Romans encircling Jerusalem, laying siege on it preparatory to its destruction, that what they had asked for was coming about.

So those who do not accept or believe in Christ are not under the Covenant of Grace. They are under the Covenant of the Law which has not changed.
