and the stars in the sky fell to earth,4 as late figs drop from a fig tree5 when shaken by a strong wind.
The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up,6 and every mountain and island was removed from its place.715
Then the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the mighty, and every slave and every free man8 hid in caves and among the rocks of the mountains.916

For the great day12 of their wrath has come, and who can stand?"13
