Zechariah 14 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)
14 8 Of the doctrine that shall proceed out of the Church, and of the restoration thereof.
1 Behold, the day of the Lord cometh, and thy spoil shall be [a]divided in the midst of thee.
2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken, and the houses spoiled, and the women defiled, and half of the city shall go into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3 Then the Lord shall go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he [b]fought in the day of battle.
4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the [c]mount of olives, which is before Jerusalem on the Eastside, and the mount of olives shall cleave in the midst thereof: toward the East and toward the West there shall be a very great [d]valley, and half of the mountain shall remove toward the North, and half of the mountain toward the South.
5 And ye shall flee unto the [e]valley of the mountains: for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee like as ye fled from the [f]earthquake, in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord [g]my God shall come, and all the Saints with thee.
6 And in that day shall there be no clear light but dark.
7 And there shall be a day (it is known to the Lord) [h]neither day nor night, but about the evening time it shall be light.
8 And in that day shall there [i]waters of life go out from Jerusalem, half of them toward the East sea, and half of them toward the uttermost sea, and shall be, both in summer and winter.
9 And the Lord shall be King over all the earth: in that day shall there be one [j]Lord, and his Name shall be one.
10 All the land shall be turned [k]as a plain from Geba to Rimmon, toward the South of Jerusalem, and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place: from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananiel unto the king’s winepresses.
11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more destruction, but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all people, that have fought against Jerusalem: their flesh shall consume away, though they stand upon their feet, and their eyes shall consume in their holes, and their tongue shall consume in their mouth.
14 And Judah shall fight also against Jerusalem, and the arm of all the heathen shall be gathered round about, with [n]gold and silver, and great abundance of apparel.
15 Yet this shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel and of the ass, and of all the beasts that be in these tents at this [o]plague.
16 But it shall come to pass that everyone that is left of all the nations, which came against Jerusalem, shall go up from year to year to worship the King the Lord of hosts, and to keep the feast of Tabernacles.
17 And who so 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 come no rain.
18 And if the family of [p]Egypt go not up, and come not, it shall not rain upon them. This shall be the plague wherewith the Lord will smite all the heathen, that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all the nations that come not up to keep the feast of Tabernacles.
21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holy unto the Lord of hosts, [s]and all they that sacrifice, shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the Lord of hosts.
