What then? (A)Israel has not obtained what it seeks; but the elect have obtained it, and the rest were (B)blinded. Just as it is written:

And the Lord shall be (A)King over all the earth.
In that day it shall be—
(B)“The Lord is one,”
And His name one.

10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. [a]Jerusalem shall be raised up and (C)inhabited in her place from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, (D)and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses.

11 The people shall dwell in it;
And (E)no longer shall there be utter destruction,
(F)But Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.

12 And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem:

Their flesh shall [b]dissolve while they stand on their feet,
Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets,
And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.

13 It shall come to pass in that day
That (G)a great panic from the Lord will be among them.
Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor,
And raise (H)his hand against his neighbor’s hand;
14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem.
(I)And the wealth of all the surrounding nations
Shall be gathered together:
Gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance.

15 (J)Such also shall be the plague
On the horse and the mule,
On the camel and the donkey,
And on all the cattle that will be in those camps.
So shall this plague be.

The Nations Worship the King

16 And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall (K)go up from year to year to (L)worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep (M)the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 (N)And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of hosts, on them there will be no rain. 18 If the family of (O)Egypt will not come up and enter in, (P)they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the Lord strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles. 19 This shall be the [c]punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

20 In that day (Q)“HOLINESS TO THE LORD” shall be engraved on the bells of the horses. The (R)pots in the Lord’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yes, [d]every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holiness to the Lord of hosts. Everyone who sacrifices shall come and take them and cook in them. In that day there shall no longer be a (S)Canaanite (T)in the house of the Lord of hosts.

The Future House of God(A)

The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem.

Now (B)it shall come to pass (C)in the latter days
(D)That the mountain of the Lord’s house
Shall be established on the top of the mountains,
And shall be exalted above the hills;
And all nations shall flow to it.
Many people shall come and say,
(E)“Come, and let us go up to the mountain of the Lord,
To the house of the God of Jacob;
He will teach us His ways,
And we shall walk in His paths.”
(F)For out of Zion shall go forth the law,
And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.
He shall judge between the nations,
And rebuke many people;
They shall beat their swords into plowshares,
And their spears into pruning [a]hooks;
Nation shall not lift up sword against nation,
Neither shall they learn war anymore.

The Day of the Lord

O house of Jacob, come and let us (G)walk
In the light of the Lord.

For You have forsaken Your people, the house of Jacob,
Because they are filled (H)with eastern ways;
They are (I)soothsayers like the Philistines,
(J)And they [b]are pleased with the children of foreigners.
(K)Their land is also full of silver and gold,
And there is no end to their treasures;
Their land is also full of horses,
And there is no end to their chariots.
(L)Their land is also full of idols;
They worship the work of their own hands,
That which their own fingers have made.
