The destroyers of Jerusalem destroyed.
Zechariah 14:1 Beholde, the day of the LORD commeth, and thy spoile shall be diuided in the midst of thee. Zechariah 14:2 For I wil gather all nations against Ierusalem to battell, and the citie shall be taken, & the houses rifeled, and the women rauished, and halfe of the citie shall goe forth into captiuitie, and the residue of the people shal not be cut off from the citie. Zechariah 14:3 Then shall the LORD goe forth and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battel.
The coming of Christ, and the graces of his Kingdom.
Zechariah 14:4 And his feet shall stand in that day vpon the mount of Oliues, which [is] before Ierusalem on the East, and the mount of Oliues shall cleaue in the midst thereof toward the East, and toward the West, [and there shall bee] a very great valley, and halfe of the Mountaine shall remoue toward the North, and halfe of it toward the South. Zechariah 14:5 And ye shal flee to the valley of the mountaines: for the valley of the mountaines shal reach vnto Azal: yea, ye shall flee like as yee fled from before the earthquake in the dayes of Uzziah king of Iudah: and the LORD my God shall come, [and] all the Saints with thee. Zechariah 14:6 And it shall come to passe in that day, that the light shall not be cleare, [nor] darke. Zechariah 14:7 But it shall be one day, which shalbe knowen to the LORD, not day nor night: but it shal come to passe that at euening time it shalbe light. Zechariah 14:8 And it shal be in that day, [that] liuing waters shall goe out from Ierusalem: halfe of them toward the former Sea, and halfe of them toward the hinder Sea: in Summer and in winter shall it be. Zechariah 14:9 And the LORD shall be King ouer all the earth: in that day shal there be one LORD, and his Name one. Zechariah 14:10 All the land shall be turned as a plaine from Geba to Rimmon, South of Ierusalem: and it shall be lifted vp and inhabited in her place: from Beniamins gate vnto the place of the first gate, vnto the corner gate, and [from] the towre of Hananiel vnto the Kings winepresses. Zechariah 14:11 And men shall dwell in it, and there shalbe no more vtter destruction: but Ierusalem shalbe safely inhabited.
The plague of Jerusalem's enemies.
Zechariah 14:12 And this shall be the plague, wherewith the LORD will smite all the people, that haue fought against Ierusalem: their flesh shall consume away, while they stand vpon their feete, and their eyes shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. Zechariah 14:13 And it shall come to passe in that day, [that] a great tumult from the LORD shalbe among them, and they shall lay holde euery one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise vp against the hand of his neighbour. Zechariah 14:14 And Iudah also shall fight at Ierusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen round about shall be gathered together, golde and siluer, and apparell in great abundance. Zechariah 14:15 And so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camell, and of the asse, and of all the beasts that shall be in these tents, as this plague.
The remnant shall turn to the LORD,
Zechariah 14:16 And it shall come to passe that euery one that is left of all the nations which came against Ierusalem, shall euen goe vp from yeere to yeere to worship the King the LORD of hostes, and to keepe the feast of Tabernacles. Zechariah 14:17 And it shall be, [that] who so will not come vp of [all] the families of the earth vnto Ierusalem, to worship the King the LORD of hostes, euen vpon them shall be no raine. Zechariah 14:18 And if the family of Egypt goe not vp, and come not, that haue no [raine]: there shall bee the plague wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not vp to keepe the feast of Tabernacles. Zechariah 14:19 This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not vp to keepe the feast of Tabernacles.
and their spoils shall be holy.
Zechariah 14:20 In that day shall there be vpon the bels of the horses, HOLINES UNTO THE LORD, and the pots in the LORDS house shall bee like the bowles before the Altar. Zechariah 14:21 Yea, euery pot in Ierusalem and in Iudah shall bee Holinesse vnto the LORD of hostes, 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 hostes.
