14 Near is the 1great 2day of the LORD, Near and coming very quickly; Listen, the day of the LORD! aIn it the warrior 3cries out bitterly.
15 A day of wrath is that day, A day of 4trouble and distress, A day of destruction and desolation, A day of 5darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thick darkness,
17 I will bring 8distress on men So that they will walk 9like the blind, Because they have sinned against the LORD; And their 10blood will be poured out like dust And their 11flesh like dung.
18 Neither * their 12silver nor their gold Will be able to deliver them On the day of the LORD'S wrath; And 13all the earth will be devoured In the fire of His jealousy, For He will 14make a complete end, Indeed a terrifying one, Of all the inhabitants of the earth.
