1Behold, a day of Yahweh is coming, when your spoil will be divided in your midst.
2For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city will be captured, the houses plundered, and the women raped. Half of the city will go out into captivity, but the rest of the people will not be removed from the city.
3Then Yahweh will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle.
4His feet will stand in that day on the Mount of Olives that is before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, making a very great valley. Half of the mountain will move toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5You will flee by the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains will reach to Azel; yes, you will flee, just like you fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Yahweh my God will come, and all the holy ones with you.
6It will happen in that day that there will not be light, cold, or frost.
7It will be a unique day that is known to Yahweh, not day, and not night, but it will come to pass that at evening time there will be light.
8And in that day living water will go out from Jerusalem, half of it toward the eastern sea and half of it toward the western sea. It will be flowing in summer and in winter.
9Yahweh will be King over all the earth. In that day Yahweh will be alone, and his name alone.
10All the land will be made like the Arabah, from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem; and she will be lifted up and will dwell in her place, from Benjamin’s gate to the place of the first gate, to the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses.
11Men will dwell in it, and there will be no more curse; but Jerusalem will dwell safely.
12This will be the plague with which Yahweh will strike all the peoples who have warred against Jerusalem: their flesh will consume away while they stand on their feet, and their eyes will consume away in their sockets, and their tongue will consume away in their mouth.
13It will happen in that day that a great panic from Yahweh will be among them; and they will lay hold everyone on the hand of his neighbor, and his hand will rise up against the hand of his neighbor.
14Judah also will fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the surrounding nations will be gathered together, gold, and silver, and clothing in great abundance.
15So will be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the donkey, and of all the animals that will be in those camps, as that plague.
16It will happen that everyone who is left of all the nations that came against Jerusalem will go up from year to year to worshipa the King, Yahweh of Armies, and to keep the Feast of Booths.
17And if any of all the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, Yahweh of Armies, there will be no rain upon them.
18If the family of Egypt does not go up and does not come, it will not rain on them. This will be the plague with which Yahweh will strike the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths.
19This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths.
20In that day there will be on the bells of the horses, “HOLY TO YAHWEH,” and the pots in Yahweh’s house will be like the bowls before the altar.
21Yes, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah will be holy to Yahweh of Armies, and all those who sacrifice will come and take of them and cook in them. In that day there will no longer be a Canaanite in the house of Yahweh of Armies.
