The Lord Will Rule the Earth

14Watch, for the day of the Lord is coming when your possessions will be plundered right in front of you!H3117H3068H935H7998H2505H7130 2I will gather all the nations to fight against Jerusalem. The city will be taken, the houses looted, and the women raped. Half the population will be taken into captivity, and the rest will be left among the ruins of the city.H622H1471H3389H4421H5892H3920H1004H8155H802H7901H7693H2677H5892H3318H1473H3499H5971H3772H5892 3Then the Lord will go out to fight against those nations, as he has fought in times past.H3068H3318H3898H1471H3117H3898H3117H7128 4On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem. And the Mount of Olives will split apart, making a wide valley running from east to west. Half the mountain will move toward the north and half toward the south.H7272H5975H3117H2022H2132H6440H3389H6924H2022H2132H1234H2677H4217H3220H3966H1419H1516H2677H2022H4185H6828H2677H5045 5You will flee through this valley, for it will reach across to Azal. Yes, you will flee as you did from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come, and all his holy ones with him.H5127H1516H2022H1516H2022H5060H682H5127H5127H6440H7494H3117H5818H4428H3063H3068H430H935H6918 6On that day the sources of light will no longer shine,H3117H216H3368H7087H7087 7yet there will be continuous day! Only the Lord knows how this could happen. There will be no normal day and night, for at evening time it will still be light.H259H3117H3045H3068H3117H3915H6153H6256H216 8On that day life-giving waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half toward the Dead Sea and half toward the Mediterranean, flowing continuously in both summer and winter.H3117H2416H4325H3318H3389H2677H6931H3220H2677H314H3220H7019H2779 9And the Lord will be king over all the earth. On that day there will be one Lord - his name alone will be worshiped.H3068H4428H776H3117H259H3068H8034H259 10All the land from Geba, north of Judah, to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, will become one vast plain. But Jerusalem will be raised up in its original place and will be inhabited all the way from the Benjamin Gate over to the site of the old gate, then to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses.H776H5437H6160H1387H7417H5045H3389H7213H3427H1144H8179H4725H7223H8179H6434H8179H4026H2606H4428H3342 11And Jerusalem will be filled, safe at last, never again to be cursed and destroyed.H3427H2764H3389H983H3427 12And the Lord will send a plague on all the nations that fought against Jerusalem. Their people will become like walking corpses, their flesh rotting away. Their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.H4046H3068H5062H5971H6633H3389H1320H4743H5975H7272H5869H4743H2356H3956H4743H6310 13On that day they will be terrified, stricken by the Lord with great panic. They will fight their neighbors hand to hand.H3117H7227H4103H3068H2388H376H3027H7453H3027H5927H3027H7453 14Judah, too, will be fighting at Jerusalem. The wealth of all the neighboring nations will be captured - great quantities of gold and silver and fine clothing.H3063H3898H3389H2428H1471H5439H622H2091H3701H899H3966H7230 15This same plague will strike the horses, mules, camels, donkeys, and all the other animals in the enemy camps.H4046H5483H6505H1581H2543H929H1992H4264H4046 16In the end, the enemies of Jerusalem who survive the plague will go up to Jerusalem each year to worship the King, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, and to celebrate the Festival of Shelters.H3498H1471H935H3389H5927H1767H8141H8141H7812H4428H3068H6635H2287H2282H5521 17Any nation in the world that refuses to come to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord of Heaven’s Armies, will have no rain.H5927H4940H776H3389H7812H4428H3068H6635H1653 18If the people of Egypt refuse to attend the festival, the Lord will punish them with the same plague that he sends on the other nations who refuse to go.H4940H4714H5927H935H4046H3068H5062H1471H5927H2287H2282H5521 19Egypt and the other nations will all be punished if they don’t go to celebrate the Festival of Shelters.H2403H4714H2403H1471H5927H2287H2282H5521 20On that day even the harness bells of the horses will be inscribed with these words: Holy to the Lord. And the cooking pots in the Temple of the Lord will be as sacred as the basins used beside the altar.H3117H4698H5483H6944H3068H5518H3068H1004H4219H6440H4196 21In fact, every cooking pot in Jerusalem and Judah will be holy to the Lord of Heaven’s Armies. All who come to worship will be free to use any of these pots to boil their sacrifices. And on that day there will no longer be traders in the Temple of the Lord of Heaven’s Armies.H5518H3389H3063H6944H3068H6635H2076H935H3947H1310H3117H3669H1004H3068H6635
