23 I beheld the earth, and lo, [it was] without form, and void; and the heavens, and they [had] no light.
24 I beheld the mountains, and lo, they trembled, and all the hills moved lightly.
25 I beheld, and lo, [there was] no man, and all the fowls of the heavens had fled.
26 I beheld, and lo, the fruitful place [was] a wilderness, and all its cities were broken down at the presence of the LORD, [and] by his fierce anger.
