For the Lord of hosts has a day against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up and high; a13
against all the cedars of Lebanon, lofty and lifted up; and against all the oaks of Bashan;
against all the high mountains, and against all the lofty hills;
against every high tower, and against every fortified wall;
against all the ships of Tarshish, and against all the beautiful craft. b17
The haughtiness of people shall be humbled, and the pride of everyone shall be brought low; and the Lord alone will be exalted on that day.
The idols shall utterly pass away.
Enter the caves of the rocks and the holes of the ground, from the terror of the Lord, and from the glory of his majesty, when he rises to terrify the earth.
On that day people will throw away to the moles and to the bats their idols of silver and their idols of gold, which they made for themselves to worship,
to enter the caverns of the rocks and the clefts in the crags, from the terror of the Lord, and from the glory of his majesty, when he rises to terrify the earth.
Turn away from mortals, who have only breath in their nostrils, for of what account are they?
