Zechariah 14:5: "Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley 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." The splitting of the Mount of Olives will provide a way of escape for the besieged and defeated people in Jerusalem. The site "Azal" has not been identified but must be somewhere in the desert east of Jerusalem. The flight of the surviving remnant from Jerusalem is likened to what took place following the earthquake in the days of Uzziah. The 'saints' are literally 'holy ones," angels who will accompany Jesus at His return."
