Zechariah 14:5

Context
14:5 Then you will escape 1  through my mountain valley, for the mountains will extend to Azal. 2  Indeed, you will flee as you fled from the earthquake in the days of King Uzziah 3  of Judah. Then the Lord my God will come with all his holy ones with him.

1 tc For the MT reading נַסְתֶּם (nastem, “you will escape”) the LXX presupposes נִסְתַּם (nistam, “will be stopped up”; this reading is followed by NAB). This appears to derive from a perceived need to eliminate the unexpected “you” as subject. This not only is unnecessary to Hebrew discourse (see “you” in the next clause), but it contradicts the statement in the previous verse that the mountain will be split open, not stopped up.

2 sn Azal is a place otherwise unknown.

3 sn The earthquake in the days of King Uzziah, also mentioned in Amos 1:1, is apparently the one attested to at Hazor in 760 b.c.
