Zechariah 14:3

Context

14:3 Then the Lord will go to battle 1  and fight against those nations, just as he fought battles in ancient days. 2 

Zechariah 14:8

Context
14:8 Moreover, on that day living waters will flow out from Jerusalem, 3  half of them to the eastern sea 4  and half of them to the western sea; 5  it will happen both in summer and in winter.

1 sn The statement the Lord will go to battle introduces the conflict known elsewhere as the “battle of Armageddon,” a battle in which the Lord delivers his people and establishes his millennial reign (cf. Joel 3:12, 15-16; Ezek 38–39; Rev 16:12-21; 19:19-21).

2 tn Heb “as he fights on a day of battle” (similar NASB, NIV, NRSV).

3 sn Living waters will flow out from Jerusalem. Ezekiel sees this same phenomenon in conjunction with the inauguration of the messianic age (Ezek 47; cf. Rev 22:1-5; also John 7:38).

4 sn The eastern sea is a reference to the Dead Sea (cf. NCV, TEV, CEV, NLT).

5 sn The western sea is a reference to the Mediterranean Sea (cf. NCV, TEV, CEV, NLT).
