Zechariah 14:1–11

The Lord Comes and Reigns

14 A day of the Lordw is coming, Jerusalem, when your possessionsx will be plundered and divided up within your very walls.

I will gather all the nationsy to Jerusalem to fight against it;z the city will be captured, the houses ransacked, and the women raped.a Half of the city will go into exile, but the rest of the people will not be taken from the city.b Then the Lord will go out and fightc against those nations, as he fights on a day of battle.d On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives,e east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be splitf in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south. You will flee by my mountain valley, for it will extend to Azel. You will flee as you fled from the earthquakea g in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come,h and all the holy ones with him.i

On that day there will be neither sunlightj nor cold, frosty darkness. It will be a uniquek day—a day known only to the Lord—with no distinction between day and night.l When evening comes, there will be light.m

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
