14Near is the 1great2day of the LORD, Near and comingveryquickly; Listen, the day of the LORD! aIn it the warrior3cries out bitterly.
A day of wrath is that day, A day of 4trouble and distress, A day of destruction and desolation, A day of 5darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thickdarkness,
A day of 6trumpet and battlecryAgainst the 7fortifiedcities And the highcornertowers.
I will bring8distress on men So that they will walk9like the blind, Because they have sinned against the LORD; And their 10blood will be poured out like dust And their 11flesh like dung.
18Neither their 12silvernor their gold Will be able to deliver them On the day of the LORD'Swrath; And 13all the earth will be devoured In the fire of His jealousy, For He will 14make a completeend, Indeed a terrifying one, Of all the inhabitants of the earth.
