23 I looked at the earth, and it was formless and empty.a [I looked] to the heavens, and their light was gone.
24 I looked at the mountains, and they were quaking; all the hills shook.
25 I looked, and no man was left; all the birds of the sky had fled.
26 I looked, and the fertile fieldb was a wilderness. All its cities were torn down because of the Lord and His burning anger.
