Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1Behold, a day has come to YHWH, "" And your spoil has been divided in your midst. 2And I have gathered all the nations to Jerusalem to battle, "" And the city has been captured, "" And the houses have been spoiled, "" And the women are lain with, "" Half the city has gone forth in a removal, "" And the remnant of the people are not cut off from the city. 3And YHWH has gone forth, "" And He has fought against those nations, "" As in the day of His fighting in a day of conflict. 4And His feet have stood, in that day, "" On the Mount of Olives, "" That [is] eastward before Jerusalem, "" And the Mount of Olives has been cleft at its midst, "" To the east, and to the west, a very great valley, "" And half of the mountain is removed toward the north, "" And half toward the south. 5And you have fled [to] the valley of My mountains, "" For the valley of the mountains joins to Azal, "" And you have fled as you fled before the shaking, "" In the days of Uzziah king of Judah, "" And my God YHWH has come in, "" All holy ones [are] with You.

6And it has come to pass in that day, "" The precious light is not, it is dense darkness, 7And there has been one day, "" It is known to YHWH, not day nor night, "" And it has been at evening-time—there is light.

8And it has come to pass in that day, "" Living waters go forth from Jerusalem, "" Half of them to the Eastern Sea, "" And half of them to the Western Sea, "" It is in summer and in winter.

9And YHWH has become King over all the earth, "" In that day YHWH is one, and His Name one.

10All the land is changed as a plain, "" From Gebo to Rimmon, south of Jerusalem, "" And she has been high, and has dwelt in her place, "" Even from the Gate of Benjamin "" To the place of the first gate, to the front gate, "" And from the Tower of Hananeel, "" To the wine-vats of the king. 11And they have dwelt in her, "" And destruction is no more, "" And Jerusalem has dwelt confidently.

12And this is the plague with which YHWH plagues all the peoples who have warred against Jerusalem: He has consumed away its flesh, "" And it is standing on its feet, "" And its eyes are consumed in their holes, "" And its tongue is consumed in their mouth. 13And it has come to pass in that day, "" A great destruction [from] YHWH is among them, "" And they have each seized the hand of his neighbor, "" And his hand has gone up against the hand of his neighbor. 14And also Judah is fought with in Jerusalem, "" And the force of all the surrounding nations has been gathered, "" Gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance. 15And so is the plague of the horse, of the mule, "" Of the camel, and of the donkey, "" And of all the livestock that are in these camps, "" As this plague.

16And it has come to pass, "" Everyone who has been left of all the nations, "" Who are coming in against Jerusalem, "" They have also gone up from year to year, "" To bow themselves to the King, YHWH of Hosts, "" And to celebrate the Celebration of the Shelters. 17And it has come to pass, "" That he who does not go up of the families of the land to Jerusalem, "" To bow himself to the King, YHWH of Hosts, "" Even on them there is no shower. 18And if the family of Egypt does not go up, nor come in, "" Then on them is the plague "" With which YHWH plagues the nations "" That do not go up to celebrate the Celebration of Shelters. 19This is the punishment of the sin of Egypt, "" And the punishment of the sin of all the nations, "" That do not go up to celebrate the Celebration of Shelters.

20In that day “Holy to YHWH” is [engraved] on bells of the horse, "" And the pots in the house of YHWH "" Have been as bowls before the altar. 21And every pot in Jerusalem and in Judah, "" Have been holy to YHWH of Hosts, "" And all those sacrificing have come in, "" And have taken of them, and boiled in them, "" And in that day there is no merchant anymore in the house of YHWH of Hosts!
