And his feet shall stand in that day upon the [b]mount of olives, which is before Jerusalem on the Eastside, and the mount of olives shall cleave in the midst thereof: toward the East and toward the West there shall be a very great [c]valley, and half of the mountain shall remove toward the North, and half of the mountain toward the South.

And ye shall flee unto the [d]valley of the mountains: for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee like as ye fled from the [e]earthquake, in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord [f]my God shall come, and all the Saints with thee.
