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 (A)go up from year to year to (B)worship the King, the Lord of hosts, and to keep (C)the Feast of Tabernacles. 17 (D)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 (E)Egypt will not come up and enter in, (F)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 [a]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 (G)“HOLINESS TO THE LORD” shall be engraved on the bells of the horses. The (H)pots in the Lord’s house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 Yes, [b]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 (I)Canaanite (J)in the house of the Lord of hosts.
