Zechariah 14:2
For I will gather all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken, and the houses rifled, and the women ravished; and half of the city shall go forth into captivity, and the residue of the people shall not be cut off from the city.









(15) Certain of the poor of the people.--Omitted in 2Kings 25:11, and probably inserted here by an error of transcription, as the next verse states that the "poor of the land" were left in their own country.

The rest of the multitude.--Better, perhaps, the remnant of the work-people, as in Proverbs 8:30, where many commentators so render the word, "I was with him as a worker" and Song Song of Solomon 7:1. The versions, however, agree in giving "multitude."
