Thomson(i) 1 Behold days of the Lord are coming, when thy spoils shall be divided in thee. 2 I will indeed gather all the nations against Jerusalem for battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses rifled and the women polluted. And the half of the city shall go forth into captivity. As for the remainder of my people they shall not be utterly cut off. From this city, 3 the Lord indeed will come forth and draw up in array among the nations, as in the day of his array in the day of battle; 4 and on that day his feet will stand on the mount of olives over against Jerusalem on the east side and the mount of olives shall be cleft, east and west, a very great chasm. And the half of the mount will lean to the north and the half of it to the south. 5 And the valley of my mountains shall be blocked up; and the valley of mountains shall be closed up even to Jasod. It shall be blocked up as it was in the days of the earthquake; in the days of Ozias king of Juda. And when the Lord my God shall come and all the holy ones with him, 6 it shall come to pass that on that day there shall not be light; 7 there shall be chilness and cold during one day. That will indeed be a memorable day to the Lord. It will neither be day nor night; but towards evening there will be light. 8 And on that day living water will flow out of Jerusalem; the one half of it to the eastern sea and the one half of it to the western sea, both in summer and spring it shall be so. 9 And the Lord will be king over all the earth. In that day there will be one Lord and his name one, 10 enclosing for Jerusalem all the land and the desert around, from Gabea to Remmon southward. As for Rama, it shall continue in its place. From the gate of Benjamin to the place of the first gate, on to the gate of the corners and to the tower of Anameel, on to the king's wine presses 11 there shall be dwellers in it and there shall no more be a curse and in the inhabitance of Jerusalem they shall be secure. 12 And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will smite all the peoples who have warred against Jerusalem; their flesh shall waste away while they stand on their feet; and their eyes shall melt from their sockets, and their tongue shall rot in their mouth. 13 And in that day there shall be a great dread of the Lord upon them. And they will lay hold, every one, on the hand of his neighbour and his hand will be grasped in his neighbour's hand. 14 And Juda will draw up in array in Jerusalem and collect the wealth of all the peoples around; gold and silver and raiment in great abundance. 15 And the plague of the horses and the mules and the camels and the asses; that of all the cattle in those camps shall be the same as this plague. 16 And it shall come to pass that all who are left of the nations which came against Jerusalem shall come up every year to worship the Lord Almighty and to celebrate the festival of tabernacles. 17 And it shall come to pass that whosoever shall not come up to Jerusalem from all the tribes of this land, to worship the king, the Lord Almighty, even they shall be added to those. 18 But if the tribe of Egypt go not up nor come; upon them shall be the plague with which the Lord will smite all the nations which come not up to celebrate the festival of tabernacles. 19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations which decline to come up to celebrate the festival of tabernacles. 20 In that day there shall be on the bridle of the horse, "Holy to the Lord Almighty." And the kettles in the house of the Lord shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21 And every kettle in Jerusalem and in Juda shall be holy to the Lord Almighty. And all that sacrifice will come and take of them and boil in them. And there shall no more be a Chananite in the house of the Lord Almighty in that day.
