Composite 22 - Zechariah 14:1, 4, 8-11 (Vespers, 3rd reading)

Thus saith the Lord: “Behold, the days of the Lord shall come, and His feet shall stand in those days on the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem toward the east. And in those days living water shall come forth out of Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea; and so shall it be in the harvest time and in the spring. And the Lord shall be king over all the earth; in those days there shall be one Lord. His name shall be one, encompassing all the earth, and the wilderness, from Geba to Rimmon, opposite the crest of Jerusalem. And she shall be lifted up, and abide in her place; from the gates of Benjamin to the place of the former gates, and to the gate of the corners, and from the Tower of Hananeel to the king’s winepresses, they shall dwell in her. And no longer shall there be a curse; but Jerusalem shall dwell securely.”
