The destroyers of Jerusalem destroyed.
Zechariah 14:1 Beholde, the daye of the LORDE cometh, that thou shalt be spoyled and robbed: Zechariah 14:2 for I wil gather together all the Heithen, to fight agaynst Ierusalem: so that the cite shalbe wonne, the houses spoyled, and the women defyled. The half of the cite shal go awaye in to captiuyte, and the residue of the people shal not be caried out of the cite. Zechariah 14:3 After that shall the LORDE go forth to fight agaynst those Heithen, as men vse to fight in the daye of batell.
The coming of Christ, and the graces of his Kingdom.
Zechariah 14:4 The shall his fete stode vpo the mount oliuete, that lieth vpon the east syde of Ierusale. And ye mount olyuete shal cleue in two, eastwarde, & westwarde so yt there shal be a greate valley: & the halff mount shal remoue towarde the north, and the other half towarde the south. Zechariah 14:5 And ye shall fle vnto the valley of my hilles, for the valley off the hylles shal reach vnto Asal. Yee fle shall ye. like as ye fled for the earthquake in the dayes off Osias kynge of Iuda. And the LORDE my God shal come, and all sanctes with him. Zechariah 14:6 In that daye shal it not be light, but colde and frost. Zechariah 14:7 This shalbe that specyall daye, which is knowne vnto the LORDE: nether daye ner night, but aboute the euenynge tyme it shalbe light. Zechariah 14:8 In that tyme shall there waters of life runne out from Ierusalem: the half parte of them towarde the east see, ad the other half towarde the vttemost see, and shall continue both somer and wynter. Zechariah 14:9 And the LORDE himself shalbe kynge ouer all the earth. At that tyme shal there be one LORDE only, and his name shalbe but one. Zechariah 14:10 Men shal go aboute the whole earth, as vpon a felde: from Gibea to Remmon, and from ye south to Ierusalem. She shalbe set vp, and inhabited in hir place: From BenIamins porte, vnto the place of the first porte, and vnto ye corner porte: and from the tower of Hanael, vnto the kynges wyne presses. Zechariah 14:11 There shall men dwell, and there shal be nomore cursinge, but Ierusalem shalbe safely inhabited.
The plague of Jerusalem's enemies.
Zechariah 14:12 This shalbe the plage, wherwith ye LORDE wil smyte all people, that haue fought agaynst Ierusalem: Namely, their flesh shall consume awaye, though they stonde vpon their fete: their eyes shall corruppe in their holes, and their tunge shal consume in their mouth. Zechariah 14:13 In that daye shall the LORDE make a greate sedicion amoge them, so that one ma shal take another by the honde, and laye his hondes vpon the hondes of his neghboure. Zechariah 14:14 Iuda shal fight also agaynst Ierusalem, ad the goodes of all the Heithen shalbe gathered together rounde aboute: golde and syluer and a very greate multitude off clothes. Zechariah 14:15 And so shal this plage go ouer horses, mules camels, asses and all the beastes that shall be in the hooste, like as yonder plage was.
The remnant shall turn to the LORD,
Zechariah 14:16 Euery one that remayueth then of all ye people, which came agaynst Ierusalem, shal go vp yearly, to worshipe the kynge (euen ye LORDE of hoostes) and to kepe the feast off tabernacles. Zechariah 14:17 And loke what generacion vpon earth goeth not vp to Ierusalem, for to worshipe the kynge (euen the LORDE of hoostes) vpon the same shal come no rayne. Zechariah 14:18 Yff the kynred of Egipte go not vp & come not, it shall not rayne vpon them nether. This shalbe the plage wherwith ye LORDE wil smyte all Heithen, that come not vp to kepe the feast of tabernacles: Zechariah 14:19 Yee this shalbe the synneplage of Egipte and the synneplage of all people, that go not vp to kepe the feast of tabernacles.
and their spoils shall be holy.
Zechariah 14:20 At that tyme shal the rydinge geer of ye horses be holy vnto the LORDE, and the kettels in the LORDES house shal be like the basens before the aulter: Zechariah 14:21 yee all the kettels in Ierusalem and Iuda, shalbe holy vnto the LORDE of hoostes: and all they that slaye offeringes, shall come and take of them, and dight them therin. And at that tyme there shal be no mo Cananites in the house of the LORDE.
