1 Behold, the day of Jehovah comes, and your spoils shall be divided in your midst.
2 For I will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem. And the city shall be
captured, and the houses plundered, and the women ravished. And half the city shall go
into captivity and the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 And Jehovah shall go forth and fight against those nations, like the day He fought in
the day of battle.
4 And His feet shall stand in that day on the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem
on the east; and the Mount of Olives shall split in two, from the east even to the west, a
very great valley. And half of the mountain shall move toward the north, and half of it
toward the south.
5 And you shall flee to the valley of My mountains, for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal. And you shall flee as you fled before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah, king of Judah. And Jehovah my God shall come, and all the saints with You.
6 And it will come to pass in that day, that there shall not be light; the great lights will
7 And it will be one day which shall be known to Jehovah; not day and not night, but it
will happen, that there will be light at evening time.
8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem, half of
them toward the eastern sea, and half of them toward the western sea; in summer and in
winter it shall be.
9 And Jehovah shall be King over all the earth. In that day there shall be one Jehovah,
and His name one.
10 All the land shall be changed into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem.
And it shall rise and dwell in its place, from Benjamin's Gate to the place of the First
Gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananeel to the king's winepresses.
11 And they shall live in it. And there shall never again be utter destruction, but
Jerusalem shall dwell safely.
12 And this shall be the plague with which Jehovah will strike all the people who have
fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh shall rot away while they stand on their feet, and
their eyes will rot away in their sockets, and their tongues shall rot away in their mouths.
13 And it shall happen in that day, that a great confusion from Jehovah shall be among
them; and they shall each one lay hold of his neighbor, and his hand shall rise up against
the hand of his neighbor.
14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem. And the wealth of the surrounding nations
shall be gathered together; gold, and silver, and clothing, in great abundance.
15 And so shall be the plague on the horse, the mule, the camel, and the ass, and all the
beasts which shall be in those camps, like this plague.
16 And it shall come to pass, that everyone who is left from all the nations which came up against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to bow down before the King, Jehovah of Hosts, and keep the Feast of Booths.
17 And it shall be, that whoever will not go up from the families of the earth to
Jerusalem to bow down before the King, Jehovah of Hosts, even upon them there shall be no rain.
18 And if the family of Egypt does not go up, nor come in, then they shall have no rain; the same plague with which Jehovah shall strike the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Booths.
19 This shall be Egypt's punishment, and the punishment of all nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Booths.
20 In that day there shall be on the bells of the horses, HOLY TO JEHOVAH. And the
pots in the house of Jehovah shall be like the bowls before the altar.
21 And every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holy to Jehovah of Hosts. And all
those who sacrifice shall come and take of them, and boil in them. And in that day there
shall not ever again be a merchant in the house of Jehovah of Hosts.
