Elul 24

And the judgement will be complete and thorough, but the people of G-d will be protected.

Swing the sickle, for the crop is ripe; come and tread, for the winepress is full, the vats are overflowing! For great is their wickedness. Multitudes upon multitudes in the Valley of Decision! For the day of the L-RD is at hand in the Valley of Decision. Sun and moon are darkened, and stars withdraw their brightness. And the L-RD will roar from Zion, and shout aloud from Jerusalem, so that heaven and earth tremble. But the L-RD will be a shelter to His people, a refuge to the children of Israel. And you shall know that I the L-RD your G-d dwell in Zion, My holy mount. And Jerusalem shall be holy; nevermore shall strangers pass through it. (Joel 4:13-17, NJPS)

The end is that everyone will know that the L-rd is G-d and there is no other; Jerusalem will be holy and pure.
