The destroyers of Jerusalem destroyed.
Zechariah 14:1 Beholde, the day of the Lorde commeth, that thou shalt be spoyled, & robbed: Zechariah 14:2 for I will gather together al the heathen, to fighte agaynste Ierusalem, so that the city shalbe woune, the houses spoyled, & the wemen defiled. The half of the city shal go away into captiuite, & the residue of the people shal not be caried out of the cyty. Zechariah 14:3 After that shal the lord go forthe to fyght agaynste those heathen, as men vse to fight in the daye of batell.
The coming of Christ, and the graces of his Kingdom.
Zechariah 14:4 Then shall his fete stand vpon the mount olyuete, that lyeth vpon the east syde of Ierusalem. And the mount olyuete shal cleue in two, eastward & westward, so that there shalbe a great valley: & the half mount shal remoue toward the north, & the other toward the south. Zechariah 14:5 And ye shal fle vnto þe valley of my hylles, for the valley of the hylles shal reach vnto Asal. Yea, fle shal ye, like as ye fled for the earthquake in the dayes of Osiah king of Iuda. And the lord my God shall come, and al sayntes with him. Zechariah 14:6 In that day shal it not be light; but could & frost. Zechariah 14:7 This shalbe that specially day, whiche is knowne vnto þe Lord: neyther day nor light, but about the euening time it shalbe light. Zechariah 14:8 In that tyme shal the waters of lyfe runne out from Ierusalem: the half parte of them toward the east sea, & the other half toward the vttermost sea, & shal continue both somer & winter. Zechariah 14:9 And the lord him selfe shalbe king ouer al þe earth. At that time shal there be one Lord onlye, & his name shalbe but one. Zechariah 14:10 Men shall go about the whole earth, as vpon a feld: from Gibea to Remnon, & from the south to Ierusalem. The shal be set vp, & inhabited in her place: from BenIamins porte, vnto the place of the first port, & vnto the corner porte, & from the tower of Hananeel, vnto the kinges wine presses. Zechariah 14:11 There shal men dwel, & there shalbe nomore cursing but Ierusalem shalbe safely inhabited.
The plague of Jerusalem's enemies.
Zechariah 14:12 This shalbe the plage, wherwith the Lorde wyll smite al people, that haue fought agaynst Ierusalem: Namely, their flesh shal consume awaye, though they stand vpon their fete: their eyes shalbe corrupt in their holes, and their tung shall consume in their mouth. Zechariah 14:13 In that day shal the Lorde make a great sedicion amonge them, so that one man shal take another by the hande, & lay his handes vpon the handes of his neighbour. Zechariah 14:14 Iuda shal fight also against Ierusalem, & the goodes of al þe heathen shalbe gathered together round aboute: gold & siluer, & a very great multitude of clothes: Zechariah 14:15 & so shal this plage go ouer horses, mules, camels, asses, & al þe beastes that shalbe in the host, like as yonder plage was.
The remnant shall turn to the LORD,
Zechariah 14:16 Euery one þt remayneth then of al the people, which came against Ierusalem, shal go vp yearly, to worshippe the king (euen the Lord of hostes) & to kepe the feast of tabernacles: Zechariah 14:17 & loke what generacion vpon earth goeth not vp to Ierusalem for to worshippe the kinge (euen the Lorde of hostes) vpon the same shal come no rayne. Zechariah 14:18 Yf the kinred of Egypt go not vp, and come not, it shall not rayne vpon them neyther. This shalbe the plage wherwith the Lorde wil smite al heathen, þt come not vp to kepe the feast of tabernacles: Zechariah 14:19 yea, this shalbe the sinne plage of Egipt, & the sinne plage of al people that go not vp to kepe the feast of tabernacles.
and their spoils shall be holy.
Zechariah 14:20 At that time shall the riding geer of the horses be holy vnto the Lord, & the kettels in the Lordes house shalbe lyke the basens before the aulter: Zechariah 14:21 yea al the kettels in Ierusalem & Iuda, shalbe holy vnto the Lord of hostes: & all they that slay offeringes, shall come take of them, & dight them therin. And at that tyme there shalbe no mo Cananites in the house of the Lorde.
