14 1Behold, a day of Jehovah cometh, when thy spoil shall be divided
in the midst of thee.
2For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to
battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women
ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue
of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3Then shall Jehovah go
forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of
4And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives,
which is before Jerusalem on the east; and the mount of Olives shall be cleft
in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall
be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the
north, and half of it toward the south.
5And ye shall flee by the valley
of my mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azel; yea,
ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of
Uzziah king of Judah; and Jehovah my God shall come, and all the holy ones
6And it shall come to pass in that day, that there shall not
be light; the bright ones shall withdraw themselves:
7but it shall be one
day which is known unto Jehovah; not day, and not night; but it shall come to
pass, that at evening time there shall be light.
8And it shall come to
pass 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 shall it be.
9And Jehovah shall be King over all the
earth: in that day shall Jehovah be one, and his name one.
10All the land
shall be made like the Arabah, from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem; and
she shall be lifted up, and shall dwell in her place, from Benjamin's gate
unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of
Hananel unto the king's wine-presses.
11And men shall dwell therein, and
there shall be no more curse; but Jerusalem shall dwell safely.
this shall be the plague wherewith Jehovah will smite all the peoples that
have warred against Jerusalem: their flesh shall consume away while they
stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their sockets,
and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
13And it shall come
to pass in that day, that a great tumult from Jehovah shall be among them;
and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand
shall rise up against the hand of his neighbor.
14And Judah also shall
fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the nations round about shall be
gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.
15And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and
of the ass, and of all the beasts that shall be in those camps, as that
16And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all
the nations that came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to
worship the King, Jehovah of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
17And it shall be, that whoso of all the families of the earth
goeth not up unto Jerusalem to worship the King, Jehovah of hosts, upon them
there shall be no rain.
18And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come
not, neither shall it be upon them; there shall be the plague
wherewith Jehovah will smite the nations that go not up to keep the feast of
19This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment
of all the nations that go not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLY UNTO JEHOVAH; and
the pots in Jehovah's house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
21Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holy unto Jehovah of
hosts; and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and boil
therein: and in that day there shall be no more a Canaanite in the house of
Jehovah of hosts.
