The Day of the Lord

jBlow a trumpet in kZion;

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,


11  cThe Lord utters his voice

before dhis army,

for his camp is exceedingly great;

ehe who executes his word is powerful.

fFor the day of the Lord is ggreat and very awesome;

hwho can endure it?


31 cThe sun shall be turned to darkness, dand the moon to blood, ebefore the great and awesome day of the Lord comes.


14  Multitudes, multitudes,

in the valley of decision!

For bthe day of the Lord is near

in the valley of decision.


mWail, for nthe day of the Lord is near;

as destruction from the Almighty1 it will come!


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.


10  qThat day is the day of the Lord God of hosts,

ra day of vengeance,

sto avenge himself on his foes.

tThe sword shall devour and be sated

and drink its fill of their blood.

For the Lord God of hosts holds ua sacrifice

vin the north country wby the river Euphrates.


vSon of man, prophesy, and say, Thus says the Lord God:

wWail, Alas for the day!

wFor the day is near,

xthe day of the Lord is near;

it will be ya day of clouds,

a time of doom for1 the nations.


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,


The Day of the Lord Is Near

15  For wthe day of the Lord is near upon all the nations.

xAs you have done, it shall be done to you;

your deeds shall return on your own head.


14  dThe great day of the Lord is near,

near and hastening fast;

the sound of the day of the Lord is bitter;

ethe mighty man cries aloud there.

15  fA day of wrath is that day,

a day of distress and anguish,

a day of gruin and devastation,

ha day of darkness and gloom,

ha day of clouds and thick darkness,


The Coming Day of the Lord

14 Behold, xa day is coming for the Lord, when the spoil taken from you will be divided in your midst.


10 But zthe day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then athe heavens will pass away with a roar, and bthe heavenly bodies1 will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.2
