for every lofty tower1 and every fortified wall,216
for every trading shipa3 and every stately vessel.
The arrogance of man will be brought low4 and the pride of men humbled;5 the LORD alone will be exalted in that day,618
and the idols7 will totally disappear.819
Men will flee to caves9 in the rocks and to holes in the ground10 from dread11 of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty,12 when he rises to shake the earth.1320
In that day14 men will throw away to the rodents and bats15 their idols of silver and idols of gold,16 which they made to worship.1721
They will flee to caverns in the rocks18 and to the overhanging crags from dread of the LORD and the splendor of his majesty,19 when he rises20 to shake the earth.2122
Stop trusting in man,22 who has but a breath23 in his nostrils. Of what account is he?24
