The whole land, from Geba1 to Rimmon,2 south of Jerusalem, will become like the Arabah. But Jerusalem will be raised up3 and remain in its place,4 from the Benjamin Gate5 to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate,6 and from the Tower of Hananel7 to the royal winepresses.
This is the plague with which the LORD will strike10 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.11
If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The LORD a will bring on them the plague23 he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles.24
