Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
18 Woe to you who long for the Day of the Lord! What will the Day of the Lord be for you? It will be darkness and not light. 18 Woe to you who long for the day of the LORD! Why do you long for the day of the LORD? That day will be darkness, not light.
19 It will be like a man who flees from a lion only to have a bear confront him. He goes home and rests his hand against the wall only to have a snake bite him. 19 It will be as though a man fled from a lion only to meet a bear, as though he entered his house and rested his hand on the wall only to have a snake bite him.
20 Won't the Day of the Lord be darkness rather than light, even gloom without any brightness in it? 20 Will not the day of the LORD be darkness, not light-- pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness?
