On that day living watern will flowo out from Jerusalem, half of it eastp to the Dead Sea and half of it west to the Mediterranean Sea, in summer and in winter.q

The Lord will be kingr over the whole earth.s On that day there will be one Lord, and his name the only name.t

10 The whole land, from Gebau to Rimmon,v south of Jerusalem, will become like the Arabah. But Jerusalem will be raised upw high from the Benjamin Gatex to the site of the First Gate, to the Corner Gate,y and from the Tower of Hananelz to the royal winepresses, and will remain in its place.a 11 It will be inhabited;b never again will it be destroyed. Jerusalem will be secure.c

12 This is the plague with which the Lord will striked all the nations that fought against Jerusalem: Their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.e 13 On that day people will be stricken by the Lord with great panic.f They will seize each other by the hand and attack one another.g 14 Judahh too will fight at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the surrounding nations will be collectedi—great quantities of gold and silver and clothing. 15 A similar plaguej will strike the horses and mules, the camels and donkeys, and all the animals in those camps.

16 Then the survivorsk from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worshipl the King,m the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.n 17 If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worshipo the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain.p 18 If the Egyptian people do not go up and take part, they will have no rain. The Lordb will bring on them the plagueq he inflicts on the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.r 19 This will be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not go up to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles.s

20 On that day holy to the Lordt will be inscribed on the bells of the horses, and the cooking potsu in the Lord’s house will be like the sacred bowlsv in front of the altar. 21 Every pot in Jerusalem and Judah will be holyw to the Lord Almighty, and all who come to sacrifice will take some of the pots and cook in them. And on that dayx there will no longer be a Canaanitec y in the housez of the Lord Almighty.a
