Zechariah 14:1-21, NLT
The Lord Will Rule the Earth
1Watch, for the day of the Lord is coming when your possessions will be plundered right in front of you!
3Then the Lord will go out to fight against those nations, as he has fought in times past.
6On that day the sources of light will no longer shine,*14:6 Hebrew the precious ones shall diminish; or the precious ones and frost. The meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain.
8On that day life-giving waters will flow out from Jerusalem, half toward the Dead Sea and half toward the Mediterranean,*14:8 Hebrew half toward the eastern sea and half toward the western sea. flowing continuously in both summer and winter.
9And the Lord will be king over all the earth. On that day there will be one Lord—his name alone will be worshiped.
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.
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.
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.
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.
