1 Praise the Lord, all you nations! Extol him, all you peoples! 2 For great is his steadfast love towards us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures for ever. Praise the Lord!
Old Testament Reading - All the Nation will celebrate Sukkot
9And the Lord shall be King over all the earth. In that day there shall be one Lord — his name alone will be worshiped. 10All the land from Geba (the northern border of Judah) to Rimmon (the southern border) will become one vast plain, but Jerusalem will be on an elevated site, covering the area all the way from the Gate of Benjamin over to the site of the old gate, then to the Corner Gate, and from the Tower of Hananel to the king’s winepresses. 11And Jerusalem shall be inhabited, safe at last, never again to be cursed and destroyed.
16In the end, those who survive the plague will go up to Jerusalem each year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, to celebrate a time of thanksgiving.a 17And any nation anywhere in all the world that refuses to come to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, will have no rain.. . . . . Zechariah 14:9-11;16-17
- Literally, “to celebrate the Feast of Tabernacles,” or “Booths.”
