“That terrible day of the is near. Swiftly it comes— a day of bitter tears, a day when even strong men will cry out.
It will be a day when the ’s anger is poured out— a day of terrible distress and anguish, a day of ruin and desolation, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness,
a day of trumpet calls and battle cries. Down go the walled cities and the strongest battlements!
“Because you have sinned against the , I will make you grope around like the blind. Your blood will be poured into the dust, and your bodies will lie rotting on the ground.”
Your silver and gold will not save you on that day of the ’s anger. For the whole land will be devoured by the fire of his jealousy. He will make a terrifying end of all the people on earth.
