Zechariah 14 ©

1The destruction of Jerusalem. 3The coming of Christ, the graces of his kingdom, and the restoration of Jerusalem. 12The plague of Jerusalem's enemies. 16The remnant shall turn to the Lord. 20The holiness of all that belongeth to them.

1

BEHOLD, the aday of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.

2

For bI will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses *rifled, and the cwomen ravished; and dhalf of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the eresidue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.

3

Then shall the LORD go forth, fand fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.

4

¶And his feet gshall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be ha very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.

h Joel 3.12,14. v.5.
5

And ye shall flee to the valley of 1the mountains; 2for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the iearthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and jthe LORD my God shall come, and all the ksaints with thee.

6

And it shall come to pass in that day, 3that the light shall lnot be 4clear, nor 5dark:

7

But 6it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at mevening time it shall be light.

8

And it shall be in that day, that nliving waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the 7former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

9

And othe LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.

10

pAll the land shall be 8turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it qshall be lifted up, and 9inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.

11

And men shall rdwell in it, and there shall be sno more utter destruction; but tJerusalem 10shall be safely inhabited.

r ch. 2.4; 8.4,8.
12

uAnd this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; vTheir flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.

13

And it shall come to pass in that day, wthat a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.

14

xAnd 11Judah also shall fight 12at Jerusalem; and ythe wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and *apparel, in great abundance.

15

zAnd 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 these tents, as this plague.

z v.12. Is. 30.22. Nu. 31.22,23.
16

¶And it shall come to pass, that every one that is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall aeven go up from year to year to worship the bKing, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the cfeast of tabernacles.

17

And it shall be, dthat whoso will not come up of all the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.

18

And if the efamily of Egypt go not up, and come not, 13that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep fthe feast of tabernacles.

19

This shall be the 14punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.

20

¶In that day gshall there be upon the 15bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the hpots in the LORD's house shall be like the bowls before the altar.

21

Yea, ievery pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and jall they that sacrifice shall come and take of them, and k*seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the lCanaanite in the mhouse of the LORD of hosts.
