Zechariah 14

The Coming Day of the  Lord

1Behold aa day is coming for the  Lord, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst. 2For bI will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and cthe city shall be taken dand the houses plundered eand the women raped. fHalf of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city. 3 gThen the  Lord will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle. 4 hOn that day his feet shall stand ion jthe Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and kthe Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by la 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 mthe earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the  Lord my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.

6 nOn that day othere shall be pno light, cold, or frost.
Compare Septuagint, Syriac, Vulgate, Targum; the meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain
7 rAnd there shall be a unique
Hebrew one
day twhich is known to the  Lord, neither day nor night, but uat evening time there shall be light.

8 vOn that day wliving waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to xthe eastern sea
That is,  the Dead Sea
and half of them to zthe western sea.
That is,  the Mediterranean Sea
abIt shall continue in summer as in winter.

9And acthe  Lord will be king over all the earth. adOn that day the  Lord will be aeone and afhis name one.

10 agThe whole land shall be turned into a plain from ahGeba to aiRimmon south of Jerusalem. But ajJerusalem shall remain aloft akon its site from althe Gate of Benjamin to the place of the former gate, to amthe Corner Gate, and from anthe Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses. 11And it shall be inhabited, for aothere 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
aqJerusalem shall dwell in security.

12And this shall be arthe 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 ason that day a great panic from the  Lord shall fall on them, so that ateach will seize the hand of another, and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of the other. 14Even auJudah will fight at Jerusalem. And avthe wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be collected, gold, silver, and garments in great abundance. 15And awa 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 axshall go up year after year to worship aythe King, the  Lord of hosts, and azto keep bathe Feast of Booths. 17And if bbany of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship bcthe King, the  Lord of hosts, bdthere 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 bfthe plague with which the  Lord afflicts the nations that do not go up bgto keep the Feast of Booths.
19This shall be the punishment to Egypt and the punishment to all the nations that do not go up bhto keep the Feast of Booths.

20And bion that day there shall be inscribed on the bells of the horses, bjHoly 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 bkholy 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 blthere shall no longer be bma trader
Or Canaanite
in the house of the  Lord of hosts boon that day.
