A day of the LORD 1 is coming when your plunder2 will be divided among you.
I will gather all the nations3 to Jerusalem to fight against it;4 the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped.5 Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.63
Then the LORD will go out and fight7 against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle.84
On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,9 east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split10 in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.
You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquakea11 in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD my God will come,12 and all the holy ones with him.136
On that day there will be no light,14 no cold or frost.
It will be a unique15 day, without daytime or nighttime16--a day known to the LORD. When evening comes, there will be light.17
