It will be a unique1 day, without daytime or nighttime2--a day known to the LORD. When evening comes, there will be light.38
On that day living water4 will flow5 out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern6 seaa and half to the western sea,b in summer and in winter.79
The LORD will be king8 over the whole earth.9 On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name.1010
The whole land, from Geba11 to Rimmon,12 south of Jerusalem, will become like the Arabah. But Jerusalem will be raised up13 and remain in its place,14 from the Benjamin Gate15 to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate,16 and from the Tower of Hananel17 to the royal winepresses.
It will be inhabited;18 never again will it be destroyed. Jerusalem will be secure.1912
This is the plague with which the LORD will strike20 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.2113
On that day men will be stricken by the LORD with great panic.22 Each man will seize the hand of another, and they will attack each other.2314
Judah24 too will fight at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collected25--great quantities of gold and silver and clothing.
A similar plague26 will strike the horses and mules, the camels and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps.
Then the survivors27 from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship28 the King,29 the LORD Almighty, and to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.3017
If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship31 the King, the LORD Almighty, they will have no rain.32
