Lord Comes and Reigns
14:1 Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy
spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee.
14:2 For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to
battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled,
and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth
into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be
cut off from the city.
14:3 Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those
nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of
Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount
of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east
and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley;
and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and
half of it toward the south.
14:5 And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for
the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye
shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in
the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the LORD my God shall
come, and all the saints with thee.
14:6 And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light
shall not be clear, nor dark:
14:7 But it shall be one day which shall be known to the
LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at
evening time it shall be light.
14:8 And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall
go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea,
and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in
winter shall it be.
14:9 And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that
day shall there be one LORD, and his name one.
14:10 All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to
Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and
inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place
of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower
of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses.
14:11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more
utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
14:12 And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will
smite all the people that have fought against Jerusalem;
Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their
feet, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and
their tongue shall consume away in their mouth.
14:13 And it shall come to pass in that day, that a great
tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they shall lay
hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand
shall rise up against the hand of his neighbour.
14:14 And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the
wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered
together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance.
14:15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule,
of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts that
shall be in these tents, as this plague.
14:16 And it shall come to pass, that every one that is
left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall
even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD
of hosts, and to keep the feast of tabernacles.
14:17 And it shall be, that whoso will not come up of all
the families of the earth unto Jerusalem to worship the
King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
14:18 And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not,
that have no rain; there shall be the plague, wherewith the
LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the
feast of tabernacles.
14:19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the
punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast
14:20 In that day shall there be upon the bells of the
horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots in the LORD's
house shall be like the bowls before the altar.
14:21 Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah shall be
holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice
shall come and take of them, and seethe therein: and in that
day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the
LORD of hosts.
