Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 A day is coming that belongs to the LORD, when that which has been plundered from you will be divided among you. 1 A day of the LORD is coming when your plunder will be divided among you.
2 I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem for the battle, the city will be captured, the houses will be plundered, and the women will be raped. Half of the city will go forth into exile, but what is left of the people won't be eliminated from the city. 2 I will gather all the nations to Jerusalem to fight against it; the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped. Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.
3 The LORD will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. 3 Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations, as he fights in the day of battle.
4 On that day he will stand upon the Mount of Olives, to the east of Jerusalem. The Mount of Olives will be split in half by a very large valley running from east to west. Half of the mountain will move north, and the other half will move south. 4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.
5 You will flee through the valley of my mountain, because the valley of the mountains will reach to Azal. You will flee just as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Judah's King Uzziah. The LORD my God will come, and all the holy ones with him. 5 You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.
6 On that day, there will be no light. Splendid things will disappear. 6 On that day there will be no light, no cold or frost.
7 On one day known to the LORD, there will be neither day nor night, but at evening time there will be light. 7 It will be a unique day, without daytime or nighttime--a day known to the LORD. When evening comes, there will be light.
8 On that day, running water will flow out from Jerusalem, half of it to the Dead Sea and half of it to the Mediterranean; this will happen during the summer and the fall. 8 On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter.
9 The LORD will become king over all the land. On that day the LORD will be one, and the LORD's name will be one. 9 The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.
10 The entire land will become like the desert from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem. Jerusalem will be high up and firmly in place from the Benjamin Gate to the place of the former gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Hananel Tower to the king's wine vats. 10 The whole land, from Geba to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, will become like the Arabah. But Jerusalem will be raised up and remain in its place, from the Benjamin Gate to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the royal winepresses.
11 People will dwell in it; it will never again be destroyed. Jerusalem will dwell securely. 11 It will be inhabited; never again will it be destroyed. Jerusalem will be secure.
12 This will be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples who swarmed against Jerusalem: their flesh will rot, even while standing on their feet; their eyes will rot in their sockets; and their tongues will rot in their mouths. 12 This is the plague with which the LORD will strike all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.
13 On that day, a great panic brought on by the LORD will fall upon them; they will all grasp at the hand of their neighbors; neighbors will attack each other. 13 On that day men will be stricken by the LORD with great panic. Each man will seize the hand of another, and they will attack each other.
14 Even Judah will fight in Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected: gold, silver, and a great abundance of garments. 14 Judah too will fight at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected--great quantities of gold and silver and clothing.
15 This plague will also affect the horses, mules, camels, donkeys, and any cattle in those camps during this plague. 15 A similar plague will strike the horses and mules, the camels and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps.
16 All those left from all the nations who attacked Jerusalem will go up annually to pay homage to the king, the LORD of heavenly forces, and to celebrate the Festival of Booths. 16 Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.
17 Whoever among the families of the earth doesn't go up to Jerusalem to pay homage to the king, the LORD of heavenly forces, upon them no rain will fall. 17 If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD Almighty, they will have no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt doesn't go up and doesn't present itself, then no rain will fall on them. There will be a plague like the one with which the LORD struck the nations that didn't go up to celebrate the Festival of Booths. 18 If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The LORD will bring on them the plague he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.
19 This would be the sin of Egypt and the sin of all the nations who don't go up to celebrate the Festival of Booths. 19 This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.
20 On that day, Holy to the LORD will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, and the pots in the LORD's house will be holy like the bowls before the altar. 20 On that day HOLY TO THE LORD will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, and the cooking pots in the LORD's house will be like the sacred bowls in front of the altar.
21 Every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah will be holy to the LORD of heavenly forces. All those who sacrifice will come. They will take some of the pots and cook with them. There will no longer be any merchants in the house of the LORD of heavenly forces on that day. 21 Every pot in Jerusalem and Judah will be holy to the LORD Almighty, and all who come to sacrifice will take some of the pots and cook in them. And on that day there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of the LORD Almighty.
