See, the day1 of the LORD is coming --a cruel2 day, with wrath3 and fierce anger4-- to make the land desolate and destroy the sinners within it.
The stars of heaven and their constellations will not show their light.5 The rising sun6 will be darkened7 and the moon will not give its light.811
I will punish9 the world for its evil, the wicked10 for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty11 and will humble12 the pride of the ruthless.1312
I will make man14 scarcer than pure gold, more rare than the gold of Ophir.1513
Therefore I will make the heavens tremble;16 and the earth will shake17 from its place at the wrath18 of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger.19
