Zechariah 14

The Coming Day of the  Lord

1Behold a  a day is coming for the  Lord, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst. 2For b  I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and c  the city shall be taken d  and the houses plundered e  and the women raped. f  Half of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 g  Then the  Lord will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. 4 h  On that day his feet shall stand i  on j  the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and k  the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by l  a very wide valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward. 5And 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 from m  the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the  Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.

6 n  On that day o  there shall be p  no light, cold, or frost.
Compare Septuagint, Syriac, Vulgate, Targum; the meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain
7 r  And there shall be a unique
Hebrew one
day t  which is known to the  Lord, neither day nor night, but u  at evening time there shall be light.

8 v  On that day w  living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to x  the eastern sea
That is,  the Dead Sea
and half of them to z  the western sea.
That is,  the Mediterranean Sea
ab  It shall continue in summer as in winter.

9And ac  the  Lord will be king over all the earth. ad  On that day the  Lord will be ae  one and af  his name one.

10 ag  The whole land shall be turned into a plain from ah  Geba to ai  Rimmon south of Jerusalem. But aj  Jerusalem shall remain aloft ak  on its site from al  the Gate of Benjamin to the place of the former gate, to am  the Corner Gate, and from an  the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses. 11And it shall be inhabited, for ao  there shall never again be a decree of utter destruction.
The Hebrew term rendered  decree of utter destruction refers to things devoted (or set apart) to the Lord (or by the Lord) for destruction
aq  Jerusalem shall dwell in security.

12And this shall be ar  the plague with which the  Lord will strike all the peoples that wage war 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.

13And as  on that day a great panic from the  Lord shall fall on them, so that at  each will seize the hand of another, and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of the other. 14Even au  Judah will fight at Jerusalem. And av  the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be collected, gold, silver, and garments in great abundance. 15And aw  a plague like this plague shall fall on the horses, the mules, the camels, the donkeys, and whatever beasts may be in those camps.

16Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem ax  shall go up year after year to worship ay  the King, the  Lord of hosts, and az  to keep ba  the Feast of Booths. 17And if bb  any of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship bc  the King, the  Lord of hosts, bd  there will be no rain on them. 18And if the family of Egypt does not go up and present themselves, then on them there shall be no rain;
Hebrew lacks  rain
there shall be bf  the plague with which the  Lord afflicts the nations that do not go up bg  to keep the Feast of Booths.
19This shall be the punishment to Egypt and the punishment to all the nations that do not go up bh  to keep the Feast of Booths.

20And bi  on that day there shall be inscribed on the bells of the horses, bj  Holy to the  Lord.” And the pots in the house of the  Lord shall be as the bowls before the altar. 21And every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be bk  holy to the  Lord of hosts, so that all who sacrifice may come and take of them and boil the meat of the sacrifice in them. And bl  there shall no longer be bm  a trader
Or Canaanite
in the house of the  Lord of hosts bo  on that day.
