In the final great war, all nations will be engaged at Jerusalem, but the Lord will defend His people—Then the Jews will look upon the Lord, whom they crucified, and there will be great mourning.
1 The burden of the word of the Lord for Israel, saith the Lord, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the aearth, and formeth the bspirit of man within him.
2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a acup of trembling unto all the bpeople round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
3 ¶ And 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 agathered together against it.
4 In 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.
5 And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the Lord of hosts their God.
6 ¶ In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an ahearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the bpeople round about, on the right hand and on the left: and cJerusalem shall be dinhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.
7 The Lord also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of aDavid and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.
8 In 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.
9 ¶ And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to adestroy all the nations that come against bJerusalem.
10 And I will apour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of bgrace and of supplications: and they shall clook upon me whom they have dpierced, and they shall emourn for him, as one mourneth for his fonly son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.
11 In that day shall there be a great amourning in Jerusalem, as the mourning of Hadadrimmon in the valley of Megiddon.
12 And the land shall amourn, 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;
13 The family of the house of Levi apart, and their wives apart; the family of Shimei apart, and their wives apart;
14 All the families that remain, every family apart, and their wives apart.
