Blow the trumpet1 in Zion;2 sound the alarm on my holy hill.3 Let all who live in the land tremble, for the day of the LORD 4 is coming. It is close at hand5--
a day of darkness6 and gloom,78 a day of clouds9 and blackness.10 Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army11 comes, such as never was of old12 nor ever will be in ages to come.
