On that day there will be no light,1 no cold or frost.
It will be a unique2 day, without daytime or nighttime3--a day known to the LORD. When evening comes, there will be light.48
On that day living water5 will flow6 out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern7 seaa and half to the western sea,b in summer and in winter.89
The LORD will be king9 over the whole earth.10 On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.1110
The whole land, from Geba12 to Rimmon,13 south of Jerusalem, will become like the Arabah. But Jerusalem will be raised up14 and remain in its place,15 from the Benjamin Gate16 to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate,17 and from the Tower of Hananel18 to the royal winepresses.
It will be inhabited;19 never again will it be destroyed. Jerusalem will be secure.2012
This is the plague with which the LORD will strike21 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.2213
On that day men will be stricken by the LORD with great panic.23 Each man will seize the hand of another, and they will attack each other.2414
Judah25 too will fight at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected26--great quantities of gold and silver and clothing.
A similar plague27 will strike the horses and mules, the camels and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps.
Then the survivors28 from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship29 the King,30 the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.31
