Zechariah 13:1-9
1. "On that day there shall be a fountain opened for the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, to cleanse them from sin and uncleanness.
2. "And on that day, declares the LORD of hosts, I will cut off the names of the idols from the land, so that they shall be remembered no more. And also I will remove from the land the prophets and the spirit of uncleanness.
3. And if anyone again prophesies, his father and mother who bore him will say to him, 'You shall not live, for you speak lies in the name of the LORD.' And his father and mother who bore him shall pierce him through when he prophesies.
4. "On that day every prophet will be ashamed of his vision when he prophesies. He will not put on a hairy cloak in order to deceive,
5. but he will say, 'I am no prophet, I am a worker of the soil, for a man sold me in my youth.'
6. And if one asks him, 'What are these wounds on your back?' he will say, 'The wounds I received in the house of my friends.'
7. "Awake, O sword, against my shepherd, against the man who stands next to me," declares the LORD of hosts. "Strike the shepherd, and the sheep will be scattered; I will turn my hand against the little ones.
8. In the whole land, declares the LORD, two thirds shall be cut off and perish, and one third shall be left alive.
9. And I will put this third into the fire, and refine them as one refines silver, and test them as gold is tested. They will call upon my name, and I will answer them. I will say, 'They are my people'; and they will say, 'The LORD is my God.'"

Zechariah 14:1-21
1. Behold, a day is coming for the LORD, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst.
2. For I will gather all the nations against Jerusalem to battle, and the city shall be taken and the houses plundered and the women raped. Half of the city shall go out into exile, but the rest of the people shall not be cut off from the city.
3. Then the LORD will go out and fight against those nations as when he fights on a day of battle.
4. On that day his feet shall stand on the Mount of Olives that lies before Jerusalem on the east, and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two from east to west by a very wide valley, so that one half of the Mount shall move northward, and the other half southward.
5. And you shall flee to the valley of my mountains, for the valley of the mountains shall reach to Azal. And you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah. Then the LORD my God will come, and all the holy ones with him.
6. On that day there shall be no light, cold, or frost.
7. And there shall be a unique day, which is known to the LORD, neither day nor night, but at evening time there shall be light.
8. On that day living waters shall flow out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea and half of them to the western sea. It shall continue in summer as in winter.
9. And the LORD will be king over all the earth. On that day the LORD will be one and his name one.
10. The whole land shall be turned into a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem. But Jerusalem shall remain aloft on its site from the Gate of Benjamin to the place of the former gate, to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king's winepresses.
11. And it shall be inhabited, for there shall never again be a decree of utter destruction. Jerusalem shall dwell in security.
12. And this shall be the plague with which the LORD will strike all the peoples that wage war against Jerusalem: their flesh will rot while they are still standing on their feet, their eyes will rot in their sockets, and their tongues will rot in their mouths.
13. And on that day a great panic from the LORD shall fall on them, so that each will seize the hand of another, and the hand of the one will be raised against the hand of the other.
14. Even Judah will fight against Jerusalem. And the wealth of all the surrounding nations shall be collected, gold, silver, and garments in great abundance.
15. And a plague like this plague shall fall on the horses, the mules, the camels, the donkeys, and whatever beasts may be in those camps.
16. Then everyone who survives of all the nations that have come against Jerusalem shall go up year after year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Booths.
17. And if any of the families of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, there will be no rain on them.
18. And if the family of Egypt does not go up and present themselves, then on them there shall be no rain; there shall be the plague with which the LORD afflicts the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths.
19. This shall be the punishment to Egypt and the punishment to all the nations that do not go up to keep the Feast of Booths.
20. And on that day there shall be inscribed on the bells of the horses, "Holy to the LORD." And the pots in the house of the LORD shall be as the bowls before the altar.
21. And every pot in Jerusalem and Judah shall be holy to the LORD of hosts, so that all who sacrifice may come and take of them and boil the meat of the sacrifice in them. And there shall no longer be a trader in the house of the LORD of hosts on that day.

Psalms 149:5-9
5. Let the godly exult in glory; let them sing for joy on their beds.
6. Let the high praises of God be in their throats and two-edged swords in their hands,
7. to execute vengeance on the nations and punishments on the peoples,
8. to bind their kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron,
9. to execute on them the judgment written! This is honor for all his godly ones. Praise the LORD!

Proverbs 31:1-9
1. The words of King Lemuel. An oracle that his mother taught him:
2. What are you doing, my son? What are you doing, son of my womb? What are you doing, son of my vows?
3. Do not give your strength to women, your ways to those who destroy kings.
4. It is not for kings, O Lemuel, it is not for kings to drink wine, or for rulers to take strong drink,
5. lest they drink and forget what has been decreed and pervert the rights of all the afflicted.
6. Give strong drink to the one who is perishing, and wine to those in bitter distress;
7. let them drink and forget their poverty and remember their misery no more.
8. Open your mouth for the mute, for the rights of all who are destitute.
9. Open your mouth, judge righteously, defend the rights of the poor and needy.

Revelation 20:1-15
1. Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven, holding in his hand the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain.
2. And he seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years,
3. and threw him into the pit, and shut it and sealed it over him, so that he might not deceive the nations any longer, until the thousand years were ended. After that he must be released for a little while.
4. Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom the authority to judge was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for the testimony of Jesus and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.
5. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection.
6. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.
7. And when the thousand years are ended, Satan will be released from his prison
8. and will come out to deceive the nations that are at the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them for battle; their number is like the sand of the sea.
9. And they marched up over the broad plain of the earth and surrounded the camp of the saints and the beloved city, but fire came down from heaven and consumed them,
10. and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
11. Then I saw a great white throne and him who was seated on it. From his presence earth and sky fled away, and no place was found for them.
12. And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne, and books were opened. Then another book was opened, which is the book of life. And the dead were judged by what was written in the books, according to what they had done.
13. And the sea gave up the dead who were in it, Death and Hades gave up the dead who were in them, and they were judged, each one of them, according to what they had done.
14. Then Death and Hades were thrown into the lake of fire. This is the second death, the lake of fire.
15. And if anyone's name was not found written in the book of life, he was thrown into the lake of fire.
