14 Behold, athe day of the Lord is coming,
And your 1spoil will be divided in your midst.
2 For bI will gather all the nations to battle against Jerusalem;
The city shall be taken,
The houses 2rifled,
And the women ravished.
Half of the city shall go into captivity,
But the remnant of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
And fight against those nations,
As He fights in the day of battle.
4 And in that day His feet will stand con the Mount of Olives,
Which faces Jerusalem on the east.
And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two,
From east to west,
dMaking a very large valley;
Half of the mountain shall move toward the north
And half of it toward the south.
5 Then you shall flee through My mountain valley,
For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal.
Yes, you shall flee
As you fled from the eearthquake
In the days of Uzziah king of Judah.
fThus the Lord my God will come,
And gall the saints with 3You.
6 It shall come to pass in that day
That there will be no light;
The 4lights will diminish.
hWhich is known to the Lord
Neither day nor night.
But at ievening time it shall happen
That it will be light.
8 And in that day it shall be—
That living jwaters shall flow from Jerusalem,
Half of them toward 5the eastern sea
And half of them toward 6the western sea;
In both summer and winter it shall occur.
9 And the Lord shall be kKing over all the earth.
In that day it shall be
l“The Lord is one,”
And His name one.
10 All the land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. 7Jerusalem shall be raised up and minhabited in her place from Benjamin’s Gate to the place of the First Gate and the Corner Gate, nand from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses.
11 The people shall dwell in it;
And ono longer shall there be utter destruction,
pBut Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
12 And this shall be the plague with which the Lord will strike all the people who fought against Jerusalem:
Their flesh shall 8dissolve while they stand on their feet,
Their eyes shall dissolve in their sockets,
And their tongues shall dissolve in their mouths.
13 It shall come to pass in that day
That qa great panic from the Lord will be among them.
Everyone will seize the hand of his neighbor,
And raise rhis hand against his neighbor’s hand;
14 Judah also will fight at Jerusalem.
sAnd the wealth of all the surrounding nations
Shall be gathered together:
Gold, silver, and apparel in great abundance.
15 tSuch also shall be the plague
On the horse and the mule,
On the camel and the donkey,
And on all the cattle that will be in those camps.
So shall this plague be.
About The New King James Version
The New King James Version is a total update of the 1611 King James Version, also known as the "Authorized Version." Every attempt has been made to maintain the beauty of the original version while updating the English grammar to contemporary style and usage. The result is much better "readability." It is noteworthy that the NKJV is one of the few modern translations still based on the "Western" or "Byzantine" manuscript tradition. This makes the New King James Version an invaluable aid to comparative English Bible study.
