23 I looked at the earth, and it was empty and had no shape. I looked at the sky, and its light was gone.
24 I looked at the mountains, and they were shaking. All the hills were trembling.
25 I looked, and there were no people. Every bird in the sky had flown away.
26 I looked, and the good, rich land had become a desert. All its towns had been destroyed by the Lord and his great anger.
