The destroyers of Jerusalem destroyed.
Zechariah 14:1 Beholde, þe daye of the Lorde commeth, that þu shalt be spoyled and robbed, Zechariah 14:2 for I will gather together all þe Heathen to fight agaynst Ierusalem: so þt the citie shalbe wonne, the houses spoyled, and the wemen defiled. The halfe of the citie shal go awaye into captiuite, and the residue of the people shal not be caried out of the citie. Zechariah 14:3 After that shall þe Lorde go forth to fight agaynst those Heathen, as men vse to fyght in þe daye of battel.
The coming of Christ, and the graces of his Kingdom.
Zechariah 14:4 Then shall his fete stand vpon þe mount olyuete, that lyeth vpon þe east syde of Ierusalem. And þe mount olyuete shall cleue in two, eastwarde and westwarde, so þt there shalbe a great valley, and the halfe mount shall remoue towarde þe north, & the other towarde the south. Zechariah 14:5 And ye shall fle vnto þe valley of my hylles, for the valley of the hylles shall reach vnto Asal. Yee, fle shall ye lyke as ye fled for the earthquake in þe dayes of Osiah kynge of Iuda. And the Lord my God shal come, & al saintes wt him. Zechariah 14:6 In that daye shal it not be lyghte, other cleare or dymme. Zechariah 14:7 This shalbe that speciall daye whiche is knowne vnto þe Lord; nether day ner nyght but about the euenyng tyme it shalbe light. Zechariah 14:8 In that tyme shall there waters of lyfe runne out from Ierusalem: the halfe potte of them towarde the east see, and þe other halfe towarde the vttermost see, and shall continue both somer and wynter. Zechariah 14:9 And the Lorde hym selfe shalbe kynge ouer all the earth. At þt tyme shall there be one Lord onely, & his name shalbe but one. Zechariah 14:10 Men shall go about the whole erth, as vpon a felde: from Gibea to Rennon, & from the south to Ierusalem. She shalbe set vp, & inhabited in her place: from BenIamyns porte, vnto þe place of the fyrst porte, & vnto the corner porte: & from the tower of Hananeell, vnto the kinges wyne presses. Zechariah 14:11 There shal men dwel, & there shalbe no more cursinge, but Ierusalem shalbe safely inhabited.
The plague of Jerusalem's enemies.
Zechariah 14:12 This shalbe the plage, wherwith the Lorde will smyte all pleople, þt haue fought agaynst Ierusalem. Namely, their flesh shall cosume awaye, though they stande vpon their fete, their eyes shalbe corrupt in their holes and their tunge shal consume in their mouth. Zechariah 14:13 In that daye shall þe Lorde make a great sedicion amonge them, so þt one man shall take another by the hande, & laye his handes vpon the handes of his neyghboure. Zechariah 14:14 Iuda shall fyght also against Ierusalem, & the goodes of all þe Heathen shalbe gathered together round aboute: golde & syluer & a very great multitude of clothes. Zechariah 14:15 And so shall this plage goo ouer horsses, mules, camels, asses, & all the beastes þt shalbe in þe host, lyke as yonder plage was.
The remnant shall turn to the LORD,
Zechariah 14:16 Euery one þt remayneth then of all the people, which cam agaynst Ierusalem, shall go vp yerly, to worshyppe the kynge (euen the Lorde of hostes) and to kepe the feast of tabernacles. Zechariah 14:17 And loke what generacion vpon the earth goeth vp to Ierusalem for to worshyp the kynge (euen the Lorde of hostes) vpon the same shall come no rayne. Zechariah 14:18 Yf the kynred of Egypte go not vp, & come not, it shall not rayne vpon them nether. This shalbe þe plage wher wt the Lorde wil smyte all þe Heathen, þt come not vp to kepe þe feast of tabernacles: Zechariah 14:19 yee, this shalbe þe synne plage of Egipt & þe sinne plage of al people þt go not vp to kepe þe feast of tabernacles.
and their spoils shall be holy.
Zechariah 14:20 At that tyme shall the rydyng gere of the horses be holy vnto the Lorde, & the kettels in the Lordes house shall be lyke the basens before the aulter: Zechariah 14:21 yee, al the kettels in Ierusalem and Iuda, shalbe holy vnto the Lorde of hostes: and all they that slaye offeringes, shall come & take of them, & dyght them there in. And at that tyme there shall be no mo Cananites in the house of the Lorde.
