1Behold, a 1day is coming for the LORD when 2the spoil taken from you will be dividedamong you.
For I will 3gatherall the nationsagainstJerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the 4housesplundered, the womenravished and half of the cityexiled , but the rest of the people will not be cutoff from the city.
Then the LORD will goforth and 5fight against thosenations, as awhen He fights on a day of battle.
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 verylargevalley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.
You will flee by the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will fleejust as you fledbefore the 8earthquake in the days of Uzziahking of Judah. 9Then the LORD, my God, will come, and all the holyones with bHim!
In that day there will be 10nolight; the cluminaries will dwindle.
For it will be 11a uniquedaywhich is 12known to the LORD, neitherdaynornight, but it will come about that at 13eveningtime there will be light.
And in that day14livingwaters will flow out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the easternsea and the other halftoward the westernsea; it will be in summer as well as in winter.
And the LORD will be 15kingoverall the earth; in that day the LORD will be the only 16one, and His name the only one.
10All the land will be changed into a plain from 17Geba to 18Rimmonsouth of Jerusalem; but dJerusalem will 19rise and 20remain on its site from 21Benjamin'sGate as far as the place of the FirstGate to the 22CornerGate, and from the 23Tower of Hananel to the king'swinepresses.
11ePeople will live in it, and there will 24nolonger be a curse, for Jerusalem will 25dwell in security.
Now this will be the plague with which the LORD will strikeall the peopleswho have gone to waragainstJerusalem; 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.
It will come about in that day that a greatpanic from the LORD will ffall on them; and they will 27seizeoneanother'shand, and the hand of one will gbe liftedagainst the hand of another.
1428Judahalso will fight at Jerusalem; and the 29wealth of all the surroundingnations will be gathered, gold and silver and garments in greatabundance.
15So also like this30plague will be the plague on the horse, the mule, the camel, the donkey and all the cattle that will be in thosecamps.
Then it will come about that any who are left of all the nations that wentagainstJerusalem will 31go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to celebrate the 32Feast of Booths.
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 34norain on them.
18If 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 LORDsmites the nationswho do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.
19This will be the hpunishment of Egypt, and the ipunishment of all the nationswho do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Booths.
In that day there will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, "36HOLY TO THE LORD." And the 37cookingpots in the LORD'Shouse will be like the bowlsbefore the altar.
21Everycookingpot 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 nolonger be a j39Canaanite in the house of the LORD of hosts in that day.
