God Will Battle Jerusalem's Foes

1 Behold, a 1day is coming for the LORD when 2the spoil taken from you will be divided among you. 2 For I will 3gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the 4houses 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 5fight against those nations, as awhen He fights on a day of battle. 4 In that day His feet will 6stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be 7split 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 8earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. 9Then the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holy ones with bHim! 6 In that day there will be 10no light; the cluminaries will dwindle. 7 For it will be 11a unique day which is 12known to the LORD, neither day nor night, but it will come about that at 13evening time there will be light. 8 And in that day 14living 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 15king over all the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only 16one, and His name the only one. 10 All the land will be changed into a plain from 17Geba to 18Rimmon south of Jerusalem; but dJerusalem will 19rise and 20remain on its site from 21Benjamin's Gate as far as the place of the First Gate to the 22Corner Gate, and from the 23Tower of Hananel to the king's wine presses. 11 ePeople will live in it, and there will 24no longer be a curse, for Jerusalem will 25dwell 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 26rot 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 ffall on them; and they will 27seize one another's hand, and the hand of one will gbe lifted against the hand of another. 14 28Judah also will fight at Jerusalem; and the 29wealth of all the surrounding nations will be gathered, gold and silver and garments in great abundance. 15 So also like this 30plague 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 31go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the 32Feast of Booths. 17 And it will be that whichever of the families of the earth does not go up to Jerusalem to worship the 33King, the LORD of hosts, there will be 34no 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 35plague with which the LORD smites the nations who do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths. 19 This will be the hpunishment of Egypt, and the ipunishment 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, "36HOLY TO THE LORD." And the 37cooking 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 38holy 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 j39Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts in that day.
