Amos 5:18-20

NRS 18 Alas for you who desire the day of the Lord! Why do you want the day of the Lord? It is darkness, not light; NIV 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. NRS 19 as if someone fled from a lion, and was met by a bear; or went into the house and rested a hand against the wall, and was bitten by a snake. NIV 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. NRS 20 Is not the day of the Lord darkness, not light, and gloom with no brightness in it? NIV 20 Will not the day of the LORD be darkness, not light-- pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness?
