The LORD is slow to anger1 and great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished.2 His way is in the whirlwind3 and the storm,4 and clouds5 are the dust of his feet.
He rebukes6 the sea and dries it up;7 he makes all the rivers run dry. Bashan and Carmel8 wither and the blossoms of Lebanon fade.
The mountains quake9 before him and the hills melt away.10 The earth trembles11 at his presence, the world and all who live in it.12
Who can withstand13 his indignation? Who can endure14 his fierce anger?15 His wrath is poured out like fire;16 the rocks are shattered17 before him.
