14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be
divided in the midst of thee.
14:2 For 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.
14:3 Then will the LORD go forth, and fight against those
nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
14:4 And his feet will 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 of it towards the east and
towards the west, [and there shall be] a very great valley; and
half of the mountain shall remove towards the north, and half
of it towards the south.
14:5 And ye shall flee [to] the valley of the mountains; for the
valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal: yes, ye shall flee
as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah
king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall come, [and] all the
saints with thee.
14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the light
shall not be clear, [nor] dark:
14:7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD,
not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, [that] at
evening it shall be light.
14:8 And it shall be in that day, [that] living waters shall go
out from Jerusalem; half of them towards the former sea, and
half of them towards the hinder sea: in summer and in winter
shall it be.
14:9 And the LORD will be king over all the earth: in that day
will there be one LORD, and his name one.
14:10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to
Rimmon, south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and
inhabited in her 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 wine-presses.
14:11 And [men] shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more
utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
14:12 And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will
smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem; Their
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.
14:13 And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] a great
tumult from the LORD 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.
14:14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of
all the heathen around shall be collected, gold, and silver,
and apparel, in great abundance.
14:15 And 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.
14:16 And it shall come to pass, [that] every one that is left
of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall even go
up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts,
and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
14:17 And it shall be, [that] whoever will not come up of [all]
the families of the earth to Jerusalem to worship the King, the
LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
14:18 And if the family of Egypt shall not go up, and shall not
come, that [have] no [rain]; there shall be the plague, with
which the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep
the feast of tabernacles.
14:19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment
of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of
14:20 In that day there shall be upon the bells of the horses,
HOLINESS TO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD'S house shall be
like the bowls before the altar.
14:21 Yes, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be holiness
to the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come
and take of them, and seethe in them: and in that day there
shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the LORD of
