Zechariah's Call to Repentance
(Isaiah 57:14-21; Jeremiah 3:11-25; Hosea 14:1-3)
1In the eighth month, in the second year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the
son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo the prophet, saying, 2The LORD hath been sore displeased with
your fathers. 3Therefore say thou unto them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye unto me, saith
the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you, saith the LORD of hosts. 4Be ye not as your fathers,
unto whom the former prophets have cried, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Turn ye now
from your evil ways, and [from] your evil doings: but they did not hear, nor hearken unto me, saith
the LORD. 5Your fathers, where [are] they? and the prophets, do they live for ever? 6But my
words and my statutes, which I commanded my servants the prophets, did they not take hold of
your fathers? and they returned and said, Like as the LORD of hosts thought to do unto us,
according to our ways, and according to our doings, so hath he dealt with us.
A Man among the Myrtle Trees
7Upon the four and twentieth day of the eleventh month, which [is] the month Sebat, in the second
year of Darius, came the word of the LORD unto Zechariah, the son of Berechiah, the son of Iddo
the prophet, saying, 8I saw by night, and behold a man riding upon a red horse, and he stood
among the myrtle trees that [were] in the bottom; and behind him [were there] red horses,
speckled, and white. 9Then said I, O my lord, what [are] these? And the angel that talked with me
said unto me, I will shew thee what these [be]. 10And the man that stood among the myrtle trees
answered and said, These [are they] whom the LORD hath sent to walk to and fro through the
earth. 11And they answered the angel of the LORD that stood among the myrtle trees, and said,
We have walked to and fro through the earth, and, behold, all the earth sitteth still, and is at rest.
Mercy Promised to Jerusalem
12Then the angel of the LORD answered and said, O LORD of hosts, how long wilt thou not have
mercy on Jerusalem and on the cities of Judah, against which thou hast had indignation these
threescore and ten years? 13And the LORD answered the angel that talked with me [with] good
words [and] comfortable words. 14So the angel that communed with me said unto me, Cry thou,
saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I am jealous for Jerusalem and for Zion with a great
jealousy. 15And I am very sore displeased with the heathen [that are] at ease: for I was but a little
displeased, and they helped forward the affliction. 16Therefore thus saith the LORD; I am returned
to Jerusalem with mercies: my house shall be built in it, saith the LORD of hosts, and a line shall be
stretched forth upon Jerusalem. 17Cry yet, saying, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; My cities through
prosperity shall yet be spread abroad; and the LORD shall yet comfort Zion, and shall yet choose
The Four Horns and Four Craftsmen
18Then lifted I up mine eyes, and saw, and behold four horns. 19And I said unto the angel that
talked with me, What [be] these? And he answered me, These [are] the horns which have
scattered Judah, Israel, and Jerusalem. 20And the LORD shewed me four carpenters. 21Then said
I, What come these to do? And he spake, saying, These [are] the horns which have scattered
Judah, so that no man did lift up his head: but these are come to fray them, to cast out the horns
of the Gentiles, which lifted up [their] horn over the land of Judah to scatter it.

The Man with a Measure
1I lifted up mine eyes again, and looked, and behold a man with a measuring line in his hand.
2Then said I, Whither goest thou? And he said unto me, To measure Jerusalem, to see what [is]
the breadth thereof, and what [is] the length thereof. 3And, behold, the angel that talked with me
went forth, and another angel went out to meet him, 4And said unto him, Run, speak to this young
man, saying, Jerusalem shall be inhabited [as] towns without walls for the multitude of men and
cattle therein: 5For I, saith the LORD, will be unto her a wall of fire round about, and will be the
glory in the midst of her.
The Redemption of Zion
6Ho, ho, [come forth], and flee from the land of the north, saith the LORD: for I have spread you
abroad as the four winds of the heaven, saith the LORD. 7Deliver thyself, O Zion, that dwellest
[with] the daughter of Babylon. 8For thus saith the LORD of hosts; After the glory hath he sent me
unto the nations which spoiled you: for he that toucheth you toucheth the apple of his eye. 9For,
behold, I will shake mine hand upon them, and they shall be a spoil to their servants: and ye shall
know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me. 10Sing and rejoice, O daughter of Zion: for, lo, I come,
and I will dwell in the midst of thee, saith the LORD. 11And many nations shall be joined to the
LORD in that day, and shall be my people: and I will dwell in the midst of thee, and thou shalt
know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto thee. 12And the LORD shall inherit Judah his
portion in the holy land, and shall choose Jerusalem again.
13Be silent, O all flesh, before the LORD: for he is raised up out of his holy habitation.

Clean Garments for Joshua the High Priest
1And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan
standing at his right hand to resist him. 2And the LORD said unto Satan, The LORD rebuke thee, O
Satan; even the LORD that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: [is] not this a brand plucked out of
the fire? 3Now Joshua was clothed with filthy garments, and stood before the angel. 4And he
answered and spake unto those that stood before him, saying, Take away the filthy garments from
him. And unto him he said, Behold, I have caused thine iniquity to pass from thee, and I will clothe
thee with change of raiment. 5And I said, Let them set a fair mitre upon his head. So they set a
fair mitre upon his head, and clothed him with garments. And the angel of the LORD stood by.
6And the angel of the LORD protested unto Joshua, saying, 7Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou
wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and
shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by.
8Hear now, O Joshua the high priest, thou, and thy fellows that sit before thee: for they [are] men
wondered at: for, behold, I will bring forth my servant the BRANCH. 9For behold the stone that I
have laid before Joshua; upon one stone [shall be] seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving
thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day. 10In that
day, saith the LORD of hosts, shall ye call every man his neighbour under the vine and under the

The Gold Lampstand
1And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of
his sleep, 2And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick
all [of] gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the
seven lamps, which [are] upon the top thereof: 3And two olive trees by it, one upon the right
[side] of the bowl, and the other upon the left [side] thereof. 4So I answered and spake to the
angel that talked with me, saying, What [are] these, my lord? 5Then the angel that talked with me
answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. 6Then he
answered and spake unto me, saying, This [is] the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not
by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. 7Who [art] thou, O great
mountain? before Zerubbabel [thou shalt become] a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone
[thereof with] shoutings, [crying], Grace, grace unto it.
8Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 9The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the
foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts
hath sent me unto you. 10For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and
shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel [with] those seven; they [are] the eyes of the
LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
The Two Olive Trees
11Then answered I, and said unto him, What [are] these two olive trees upon the right [side] of the
candlestick and upon the left [side] thereof? 12And I answered again, and said unto him, What [be
these] two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden [oil] out of
themselves? 13And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these [be]? And I said, No,
my lord. 14Then said he, These [are] the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole

The Flying Scroll
1Then I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold a flying roll. 2And he said unto
me, What seest thou? And I answered, I see a flying roll; the length thereof [is] twenty cubits, and
the breadth thereof ten cubits. 3Then said he unto me, This [is] the curse that goeth forth over the
face of the whole earth: for every one that stealeth shall be cut off [as] on this side according to it;
and every one that sweareth shall be cut off [as] on that side according to it. 4I will bring it forth,
saith the LORD of hosts, and it shall enter into the house of the thief, and into the house of him
that sweareth falsely by my name: and it shall remain in the midst of his house, and shall consume
it with the timber thereof and the stones thereof.
The Woman in a Basket
5Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see
what [is] this that goeth forth. 6And I said, What [is] it? And he said, This [is] an ephah that goeth
forth. He said moreover, This [is] their resemblance through all the earth. 7And, behold, there was
lifted up a talent of lead: and this [is] a woman that sitteth in the midst of the ephah. 8And he
said, This [is] wickedness. And he cast it into the midst of the ephah; and he cast the weight of
lead upon the mouth thereof. 9Then lifted I up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came out
two women, and the wind [was] in their wings; for they had wings like the wings of a stork: and
they lifted up the ephah between the earth and the heaven. 10Then said I to the angel that talked
with me, Whither do these bear the ephah? 11And he said unto me, To build it an house in the land
of Shinar: and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base.

The Four Chariots
1And I turned, and lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and, behold, there came four chariots out from
between two mountains; and the mountains [were] mountains of brass. 2In the first chariot [were]
red horses; and in the second chariot black horses; 3And in the third chariot white horses; and in
the fourth chariot grisled and bay horses. 4Then I answered and said unto the angel that talked
with me, What [are] these, my lord? 5And the angel answered and said unto me, These [are] the
four spirits of the heavens, which go forth from standing before the Lord of all the earth. 6The
black horses which [are] therein go forth into the north country; and the white go forth after them;
and the grisled go forth toward the south country. 7And the bay went forth, and sought to go that
they might walk to and fro through the earth: and he said, Get you hence, walk to and fro through
the earth. So they walked to and fro through the earth. 8Then cried he upon me, and spake unto
me, saying, Behold, these that go toward the north country have quieted my spirit in the north
The Crown and the Temple
9And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, 10Take of [them of] the captivity, [even] of
Heldai, of Tobijah, and of Jedaiah, which are come from Babylon, and come thou the same day,
and go into the house of Josiah the son of Zephaniah;
11Then take silver and gold, and make crowns, and set [them] upon the head of Joshua the son of
Josedech, the high priest; 12And speak unto him, saying, Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying,
Behold the man whose name [is] The BRANCH; and he shall grow up out of his place, and he shall
build the temple of the LORD: 13Even he shall build the temple of the LORD; and he shall bear the
glory, and shall sit and rule upon his throne; and he shall be a priest upon his throne: and the
counsel of peace shall be between them both. 14And the crowns shall be to Helem, and to Tobijah,
and to Jedaiah, and to Hen the son of Zephaniah, for a memorial in the temple of the LORD. 15And
they [that are] far off shall come and build in the temple of the LORD, and ye shall know that the
LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you. And [this] shall come to pass, if ye will diligently obey the
voice of the LORD your God.

A Call to Justice and Mercy
1And it came to pass in the fourth year of king Darius, [that] the word of the LORD came unto
Zechariah in the fourth [day] of the ninth month, [even] in Chisleu; 2When they had sent unto the
house of God Sherezer and Regemmelech, and their men, to pray before the LORD, 3[And] to
speak unto the priests which [were] in the house of the LORD of hosts, and to the prophets,
saying, Should I weep in the fifth month, separating myself, as I have done these so many years?
4Then came the word of the LORD of hosts unto me, saying, 5Speak unto all the people of the
land, and to the priests, saying, When ye fasted and mourned in the fifth and seventh [month],
even those seventy years, did ye at all fast unto me, [even] to me? 6And when ye did eat, and
when ye did drink, did not ye eat [for yourselves], and drink [for yourselves]? 7[Should ye] not
[hear] the words which the LORD hath cried by the former prophets, when Jerusalem was
inhabited and in prosperity, and the cities thereof round about her, when [men] inhabited the
south and the plain?
8And the word of the LORD came unto Zechariah, saying, 9Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts,
saying, Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother: 10And
oppress not the widow, nor the fatherless, the stranger, nor the poor; and let none of you imagine
evil against his brother in your heart. 11But they refused to hearken, and pulled away the shoulder,
and stopped their ears, that they should not hear. 12Yea, they made their hearts [as] an adamant
stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit
by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts. 13Therefore it is
come to pass, [that] as he cried, and they would not hear; so they cried, and I would not hear,
saith the LORD of hosts: 14But I scattered them with a whirlwind among all the nations whom they
knew not. Thus the land was desolate after them, that no man passed through nor returned: for
they laid the pleasant land desolate.

The Restoration of Jerusalem
1Again the word of the LORD of hosts came [to me], saying, 2Thus saith the LORD of hosts; I was
jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I was jealous for her with great fury. 3Thus saith the
LORD; I am returned unto Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and Jerusalem shall be
called a city of truth; and the mountain of the LORD of hosts the holy mountain. 4Thus saith the
LORD of hosts; There shall yet old men and old women dwell in the streets of Jerusalem, and every
man with his staff in his hand for very age. 5And the streets of the city shall be full of boys and
girls playing in the streets thereof. 6Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If it be marvellous in the eyes of
the remnant of this people in these days, should it also be marvellous in mine eyes? saith the LORD
of hosts. 7Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will save my people from the east country, and
from the west country; 8And I will bring them, and they shall dwell in the midst of Jerusalem: and
they shall be my people, and I will be their God, in truth and in righteousness.
9Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Let your hands be strong, ye that hear in these days these words by
the mouth of the prophets, which [were] in the day [that] the foundation of the house of the LORD
of hosts was laid, that the temple might be built. 10For before these days there was no hire for
man, nor any hire for beast; neither [was there any] peace to him that went out or came in
because of the affliction: for I set all men every one against his neighbour. 11But now I [will] not
[be] unto the residue of this people as in the former days, saith the LORD of hosts. 12For the seed
[shall be] prosperous; the vine shall give her fruit, and the ground shall give her increase, and the
heavens shall give their dew; and I will cause the remnant of this people to possess all these
[things]. 13And it shall come to pass, [that] as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of
Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing: fear not, [but] let your
hands be strong.
14For thus saith the LORD of hosts; As I thought to punish you, when your fathers provoked me to
wrath, saith the LORD of hosts, and I repented not: 15So again have I thought in these days to do
well unto Jerusalem and to the house of Judah: fear ye not. 16These [are] the things that ye shall
do; Speak ye every man the truth to his neighbour; execute the judgment of truth and peace in
your gates: 17And let none of you imagine evil in your hearts against his neighbour; and love no
false oath: for all these [are things] that I hate, saith the LORD.
18And the word of the LORD of hosts came unto me, saying, 19Thus saith the LORD of hosts; The
fast of the fourth [month], and the fast of the fifth, and the fast of the seventh, and the fast of the
tenth, shall be to the house of Judah joy and gladness, and cheerful feasts; therefore love the truth
20Thus saith the LORD of hosts; [It shall] yet [come to pass], that there shall come people, and the
inhabitants of many cities: 21And the inhabitants of one [city] shall go to another, saying, Let us go
speedily to pray before the LORD, and to seek the LORD of hosts: I will go also. 22Yea, many
people and strong nations shall come to seek the LORD of hosts in Jerusalem, and to pray before
the LORD. 23Thus saith the LORD of hosts; In those days [it shall come to pass], that ten men
shall take hold out of all languages of the nations, even shall take hold of the skirt of him that is a
Jew, saying, We will go with you: for we have heard [that] God [is] with you.

Prophecies against Israel's Enemies

thereof: when the eyes of man, as of all the tribes of Israel, [shall be] toward the LORD.

mire of the streets.

11As for thee also, by the blood of thy covenant I have sent forth thy prisoners out of the pit
wherein [is] no water.
12Turn you to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope: even to day do I declare [that] I will render
double unto thee;

against thy sons, O Greece, and made thee as the sword of a mighty man.

15The LORD of hosts shall defend them; and they shall devour, and subdue with sling stones; and
they shall drink, [and] make a noise as through wine; and they shall be filled like bowls, [and] as
the corners of the altar.

as] the stones of a crown, lifted up as an ensign upon his land.

The Doomed Flock
1Open thy doors, O Lebanon, that the fire may devour thy cedars.
2Howl, fir tree; for the cedar is fallen; because the mighty are spoiled: howl, O ye oaks of Bashan;
for the forest of the vintage is come down.
3[There is] a voice of the howling of the shepherds; for their glory is spoiled: a voice of the roaring
of young lions; for the pride of Jordan is spoiled.
4Thus saith the LORD my God; Feed the flock of the slaughter; 5Whose possessors slay them, and
hold themselves not guilty: and they that sell them say, Blessed [be] the LORD; for I am rich: and
their own shepherds pity them not. 6For I will no more pity the inhabitants of the land, saith the
LORD: but, lo, I will deliver the men every one into his neighbour's hand, and into the hand of his
king: and they shall smite the land, and out of their hand I will not deliver [them].
7And I will feed the flock of slaughter, [even] you, O poor of the flock. And I took unto me two
staves; the one I called Beauty, and the other I called Bands; and I fed the flock. 8Three
shepherds also I cut off in one month; and my soul lothed them, and their soul also abhorred me.
9Then said I, I will not feed you: that that dieth, let it die; and that that is to be cut off, let it be
cut off; and let the rest eat every one the flesh of another.
Thirty Pieces of Silver
(Matthew 26:14-16; Matthew 27:3-10; Mark 14:10-11)
10And I took my staff, [even] Beauty, and cut it asunder, that I might break my covenant which I
had made with all the people. 11And it was broken in that day: and so the poor of the flock that
waited upon me knew that it [was] the word of the LORD. 12And I said unto them, If ye think
good, give [me] my price; and if not, forbear. So they weighed for my price thirty [pieces] of silver.
13And the LORD said unto me, Cast it unto the potter: a goodly price that I was prised at of them.
And I took the thirty [pieces] of silver, and cast them to the potter in the house of the LORD.
14Then I cut asunder mine other staff, [even] Bands, that I might break the brotherhood between
Judah and Israel.
15And the LORD said unto me, Take unto thee yet the instruments of a foolish shepherd. 16For, lo,
I will raise up a shepherd in the land, [which] shall not visit those that be cut off, neither shall seek
the young one, nor heal that that is broken, nor feed that that standeth still: but he shall eat the
flesh of the fat, and tear their claws in pieces.

right eye: his arm shall be clean dried up, and his right eye shall be utterly darkened.

Jerusalem will Be Attacked
1The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the
heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
2Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall
be in the siege both against Judah [and] against Jerusalem. 3And in that day will I make Jerusalem
a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though
all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. 4In that day, saith the LORD, I will
smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon
the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness. 5And the governors of
Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem [shall be] my strength in the LORD of
hosts their God.
6In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a
torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on
the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, [even] in Jerusalem. 7The LORD
also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the
inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify [themselves] against Judah. 8In that day shall the LORD
defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as
David; and the house of David [shall be] as God, as the angel of the LORD before them. 9And it
shall come to pass in that day, [that] I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against

is in bitterness for [his] firstborn. 11In that day shall there be a great mourning in Jerusalem, as
the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon. 12And the land shall mourn, every family
apart; the family of the house of David apart, and their wives apart; the family of the house of
Nathan apart, and their wives apart; 13The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart;

idols out of the land, and they shall no more be remembered: and also I will cause the prophets
and the unclean spirit to pass out of the land. 3And it shall come to pass, [that] when any shall yet
prophesy, then his father and his mother that begat him shall say unto him, Thou shalt not live; for
thou speakest lies in the name of the LORD: and his father and his mother that begat him shall
thrust him through when he prophesieth. 4And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the
prophets shall be ashamed every one of his vision, when he hath prophesied; neither shall they
wear a rough garment to deceive: 5But he shall say, I [am] no prophet, I [am] an husbandman;
for man taught me to keep cattle from my youth. 6And [one] shall say unto him, What [are] these
wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, [Those] with which I was wounded [in] the house of
The Shepherd Struck, Sheep Scattered
7Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, and against the man [that is] my fellow, saith the LORD of
hosts: smite the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn mine hand upon the
8And it shall come to pass, [that] in all the land, saith the LORD, two parts therein shall be cut off
[and] die; but the third shall be left therein.
9And I will bring the third part through the fire, and will refine them as silver is refined, and will try
them as gold is tried: they shall call on my name, and I will hear them: I will say, It [is] my people:
and they shall say, The LORD [is] my God.

The Destroyers of Jerusalem Destroyed
1Behold, the day of the LORD cometh, and thy spoil shall be divided in the midst of thee. 2For 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. 3Then shall the LORD go forth, and fight against those
nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4And his feet shall stand in that day upon the
mount of Olives, which [is] before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in
the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, [and there shall be] a very great valley;
and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south. 5And ye
shall flee [to] the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal:
yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah:
and the LORD my God shall come, [and] all the saints with thee.
6And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the light shall not be clear, [nor] dark: 7But it shall be
one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, [that] at
evening time it shall be light.
8And it shall be in that day, [that] living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward
the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.
9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name
10All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be
lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin's gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the
corner gate, and [from] the tower of Hananeel unto the king's winepresses. 11And [men] shall
dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.
12And this shall be the plague wherewith the LORD will smite all the people that have fought
against Jerusalem; Their flesh shall consume away while they stand upon their feet, and their eyes
shall consume away in their holes, and their tongue shall consume away in their mouth. 13And it
shall come to pass in that day, [that] a great tumult from the LORD shall be among them; and they
shall lay hold every one on the hand of his neighbour, and his hand shall rise up against the hand
of his neighbour. 14And Judah also shall fight at Jerusalem; and the wealth of all the heathen
round about shall be gathered together, gold, and silver, and apparel, in great abundance. 15And
so shall be the plague of the horse, of the mule, of the camel, and of the ass, and of all the beasts
that shall be in these tents, as this plague.
All Nations will Worship the King
16And it shall come to pass, [that] every one that is left of all the nations which came against
Jerusalem shall even go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep
the feast of tabernacles. 17And it shall be, [that] whoso will not come up of [all] the families of the
earth unto Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, even upon them shall be no rain.
18And if the family of Egypt go not up, and come not, that [have] no [rain]; there shall be the
plague, wherewith the LORD will smite the heathen that come not up to keep the feast of
tabernacles. 19This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come
not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.
20In that day shall there be upon the bells of the horses, HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD; and the pots
in the LORD'S house shall be like the bowls before the altar. 21Yea, every pot in Jerusalem and in
Judah shall be holiness unto the LORD of hosts: and all they that sacrifice shall come and take of
them, and seethe therein: and in that day there shall be no more the Canaanite in the house of the
LORD of hosts.
