Even from the rebellious,
That the LORD God might dwell there.

And grieved Him in the desert!

And limited the Holy One of Israel.

And his Holy One for a flame;

And milk the breast of kings;

Shall be written in the earth,
Because they have forsaken the LORD,
The fountain of living waters.”

Which faces Jerusalem on the east.
And the Mount of Olives shall be split in two,
From east to west,
Makinga very large valley;
Half of the mountain shall move toward the north
And half of it toward the south.
Then you shall flee through My mountain valley,
For the mountain valley shall reach to Azal.
Yes, you shall flee
As you fled from the earthquake
In the days of Uzziah king of Judah.
Thus the LORD my God will come,
And all the saints with You.
It shall come to pass in that day
That there will be no light;
The lights will diminish.
