12 fFor the Lord of hosts has a day
against all that is proud and lofty,
against all that is lifted up—and it shall be brought low;
as destruction from the Almighty1 it will come!
9 Behold, nthe day of the Lord comes,
cruel, with wrath and fierce anger,
to make the land a desolation
and rto destroy its sinners from it.
15 Alas for the day!
bFor the day of the Lord is near,
and as destruction from the Almighty1 it comes.
The Day of the Lord
sound an alarm on kmy holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,
for lthe day of the Lord is coming; it is near,
Let Justice Roll Down
18 Woe to you who desire lthe day of the Lord!
Why would you have the day of the Lord?
mIt is darkness, and not light,
20 They of the west are appalled at his tday,
and uhorror seizes them of the east.
