God Will Battle Jerusalem's Foes
1 Behold, a day R377 is coming for the LORD when the R378 spoil taken from you will be divided among you. 2 For I will gather R379 all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses R380 plundered, the women ravished and half of the city exiled, but the rest of the people will not be cut off from the city. 3 Then the LORD will go forth and fight R381 against those nations, as when F139 He fights on a day of battle. 4 In that day His feet will stand R382 on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split R383 in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south. 5 You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee just as you fled before the earthquake R384 in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then R385 the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with Him! F140
6 In that day there will be no R386 light; the luminaries F141 will dwindle. 7 For it will be a R387 unique day which is known R388 to the LORD, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at evening R389 time there will be light.
8 And in that day living R390 waters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and the other half toward the western sea; it will be in summer as well as in winter.
God Will Be King over All
9 And the LORD will be king R391 over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only one, R392 and His name the only one.
10 All the land will be changed into a plain from Geba R393 to Rimmon R394 south of Jerusalem; but Jerusalem F142 will rise R395 and remain R396 on its site from Benjamin's R397 Gate as far as the place of the First Gate to the Corner R398 Gate, and from the Tower R399 of Hananel to the king's wine presses. 11 People F143 will live in it, and there will no R400 longer be a curse, for Jerusalem will dwell R401 in security.
12 Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who have gone to war against Jerusalem; their flesh will rot R402 while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongue will rot in their mouth. 13 It will come about in that day that a great panic from the LORD will fall F144 on them; and they will seize R403 one another's hand, and the hand of one will be F145 lifted against the hand of another. 14 Judah R404 also will fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth R405 of all the surrounding nations will be gathered, gold and silver and garments in great abundance. 15 So also like this plague R406 will be the plague on the horse, the mule, the camel, the donkey and all the cattle that will be in those camps.
16 Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that went against Jerusalem will go R407 up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the Feast R408 of Booths. 17 And it will be that whichever of the families of the earth does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, R409 the LORD of hosts, there will be no R410 rain on them. 18 If the family of Egypt does not go up or enter, then no rain will fall on them; it will be the plague R411 with which the LORD smites the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths. 19 This will be the punishment F146 of Egypt, and the punishment F146 of all the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.
20 In that day there will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, "HOLY R412 TO THE LORD." And the cooking R413 pots in the LORD'S house will be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Every cooking pot in Jerusalem and in Judah will be holy R414 to the LORD of hosts; and all who sacrifice will come and take of them and boil in them. And there will no longer be a Canaanite R415 F147 in the house of the LORD of hosts in that day.
