Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
18 Woe to you who desire the day of the LORD! Why would you have the day of the LORD? It is 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 as if a man fled from a lion, and a bear met him; or went into the house and leaned with his hand against the wall, and a serpent bit 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 Is not the day of the LORD darkness, and not light, and gloom with no brightness in it? 20 Will not the day of the LORD be darkness, not light-- pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness?
