Otherwise, My wrath will break out like fire and burn with no one to extinguish [it]h because of your evil deeds.

Cry out loudly and say: Assemble yourselves, and let's flee to the fortified cities. 6 Lift up a signal flag toward Zion. Run for cover! Don't stand still! For I am bringing disaster from the north- a great destruction.i
