New Amharic Standard Version

ዘካርያስ 14:1-21

እግዚአብሔር ይመጣል፤ ይነግሣልም

1እነሆ፤ የእግዚአብሔር ቀን ይመጣል፤ ብዝበዛሽንም በውስጥሽ ይካፈላሉ።

2ኢየሩሳሌምን እንዲወጉ አሕዛብን ሁሉ እሰበስባለሁ፤ ከተማዪቱ ትያዛለች፤ ቤቶች ይበዘበዛሉ፤ ሴቶችም ይደፈራሉ፤ የከተማዪቱ እኩሌታ ይማረካል፤ የሚቀረው ሕዝብ ግን ከከተማዪቱ አይወሰድም።

3እግዚአብሔርም በጦርነት ጊዜ እንደሚ ዋጋ፣ እነዚያን አሕዛብ ሊወጋ ይወጣል። 4በዚያን ቀን እግሮቹ ከኢየሩሳሌም በስተ ምሥራቅ በደብረ ዘይት ተራራ ላይ ይቆማሉ፤ የደብረ ዘይት ተራራም ታላቅ ሸለቆን በመሥራት የተራራውን እኩሌታ ወደ ሰሜን፣ እኩሌታውንም ወደ ደቡብ በማድረግ ምሥራቅና ምዕራብ ሆኖ ለሁለት ይከፈላል፤ 5እናንተም በእግዚአብሔር ተራራ ሸለቆ በኩል በይሁዳ ንጉሥ በዖዝያን ዘመን በምድር ትሸሻላችሁ፤ ሸለቆው እስከ አጸል ይደርሳልና። በምድር መናወጥ14፥5 ወይም ተራራዬ ሸለቆ ይሮጣል እስከ አጸል ይስፋፋል። በርዕደ መሬት ሳቢያ እንደ ተዘጋው ሁሉ ለወደፊቱም እንደዚያ ይሆናል ምክንያት ሸሽታችሁ እንደ ነበረ ትሸሻላችሁ፤ ከዚያም አምላኬ እግዚአብሔር ይመጣል፤ ቅሆሳኑም ሁሉ አብረውት ይመጣሉ።

6በዚያ ቀን በረዶ ውርጭና ብርሃን አይኖርም። 7ቀኑም የብርሃን ወይም የጨለማ ጊዜ የሌለበት ልዩ ቀን ይሆናል፤ ያም ቀን በእግዚአብሔር የታወቀ ቀን ይሆናል፤ ሲመሽም ብርሃን ይሆናል።

8በዚያን ቀን የሕይወት ውሃ ከኢየሩሳሌም ይፈልቃል፤ እኩሌታው ወደ ምሥራቁ ባሕር14፥8 ሙት ባሕር ነው፣ እኩሌታውም ወደ ምዕራቡ ባሕር14፥8 ሜድትራኒያን ነው ይፈሳል፤ ይህም በበጋና በክረምት ይሆናል።

9እግዚአብሔር በምድር ሁሉ ላይ ይነግሣል፤ በዚያን ቀን እግዚአብሔር አንድ፣ ስሙም አንድ ብቻ ይሆናል።

10ምድር ሁሉ ከጌባ አንሥቶ በኢየሩሳሌም ደቡብ እስካለችው ሬሞን ድረስ ተለውጣ ደልዳላ ሜዳ ትሆናለች፤ ኢየሩሳሌም ግን ከብንያም በር እስከ መጀመሪያው በር፣ ከማእዘን በርና ከሐናንኤል ግንብ እስከ ንጉሡ የወይን ጠጅ መጥመቂያ ድረስ በዚያው በቦታዋ ላይ ከፍ እንዳለች ትኖራለች። 11የሰው መኖሪያም ትሆናለች፤ ከቶም ዳግመኛ አትፈርስም፤ ኢየሩሳሌም ያለ ሥጋት በሰላም ትኖራለች። 12እግዚአብሔር ኢየሩሳሌምን የወጓትን አሕዛብ ሁሉ የሚመታበት መቅሠፍት ይህ ነው፤ ገና በእግራቸው ቆመው ሳሉ ሥጋቸው ይበሰብሳል፤ ዐይኖቻቸው በጒድጓዶቻቸው ውስጥ እንዳሉ ይበሰብሳሉ፤ ምላሶቻቸውም በአፎቻቸው ውስጥ እንዳሉ ይበሰብሳሉ። 13በዚያ ቀን ከእግዚአብሔር ዘንድ በሰዎች ላይ ታላቅ ሽብር ይወርዳል፤ እያንዳንዱ ሰው የባልንጀራውን እጅ ይይዛል፤ አንዱም ሌላውን ይወጋዋል። 14ይሁዳም ደግሞ ኢየሩሳሌምን ይወጋል። በዙሪያው ያሉ የአሕዛብ ሁሉ ሀብት፣ ብዙ ወርቅ፣ ብርና ልብስ ይሰበሰባል። 15ይህንኑ የሚመስል መቅሠፍት ፈረሶችን፣ በቅሎዎችን ግመሎችንና አህዮችን እንዲሁም በየሰፈሩ ያሉትን እንስሶች ሁሉ ይመታል።

16ከዚያም ኢየሩሳሌምን ከወጓት አሕዛብ ከሞት የተረፉት ሁሉ ለንጉሡ፣ ለእግዚአብሔር ጸባኦት ለመስገድና የዳስን በዓል ለማክበር በየዓመቱ ይወጣሉ። 17የምድር ሕዝብ ሁሉ ለንጉሡ፣ ለእግዚአብሔር ጸባኦት ሊሰግዱ ወደ ኢየሩሳሌም የማይወጡ ከሆነ ዝናብ አያገኙም። 18የግብፅም ሰዎች ወደዚያ ሳይወጡ ቢቀሩ፣ ዝናብ አያገኙም፤ እግዚአብሔር ወጥተው የዳስ በዓልን በማያከብሩ አሕዛብ ላይ የሚያደርሰውን መቅሠፍት በእነርሱም ላይ ያመጣል። 19የዳስን በዓል ወጥተው ለማያከብሩ ግብፃውያንና አሕዛብ ሁሉ የተወሰነው ቅጣት ይህ ነው።

20በዚያ ቀን በፈረሶች ሻኵራ ላይ፣ “ቅዱስ ለእግዚአብሔር” የሚል ጽሑፍ ይቀረጻል፤ በእግዚአብሔር ቤት ያሉ የማብሰያ ምንቸቶች ከመሠዊያው ፊት ለፊት እንዳሉ ሳሕኖች የተቀደሱ ይሆናሉ። 21በኢየሩሳሌምና በይሁዳ ያሉ ምንቸቶች ሁሉ ለእግዚአብሔር ጸባኦት የተቀደሱ ይሆናሉ፤ መሥዋዕት ለማቅረብ የሚመጡ ሁሉ ምንቸቶቹን በመውሰድ ያበስሉባቸዋል፤ በዚያን ቀን በእግዚአብሔር ጸባኦት ቤት ከእንግዲህ ወዲያ ከነዓናዊ14፥21 ወይም ነጋዴ እነዚህ ሕዝቦች በአብዛኛው በንግድ ሥራ ላይ የተሰማሩ ሳይሆኑ አይቀሩም። አይገኝም።

King James Version

Zechariah 14:1-21

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.

4¶ And 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.14.5 the mountains: or, my mountains14.5 for the…: or, when he shall touch the valley of the mountains to the place he separated 6And it shall come to pass in that day, that the light shall not be clear, nor dark:14.6 that the…: that is, it shall not be clear in some places, and dark in other places of the world14.6 clear: Heb. precious14.6 dark: Heb. thickness 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.14.7 it shall be…: or, the day shall be one

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.14.8 former: or, eastern 9And the LORD shall be king over all the earth: in that day shall there be one LORD, and his name one. 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.14.10 turned: or, compassed14.10 inhabited: or, shall abide 11And men shall dwell in it, and there shall be no more utter destruction; but Jerusalem shall be safely inhabited.14.11 shall be: or, shall abide

12¶ And 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.14.14 Judah…: or, thou also, O Judah shalt14.14 at: or, against 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.

16¶ And 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.14.18 that have no: Heb. upon whom there is not 19This shall be the punishment of Egypt, and the punishment of all nations that come not up to keep the feast of tabernacles.14.19 punishment: or, sin

20¶ In 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.14.20 bells: or, bridles 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.
