The sun will no longer be your light by day, and the brightness of the moon will not shine on you; but the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your splendor.
[Davidic.] The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom should I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom should I be afraid?
For the LORD God is a sun and shield. The LORD gives grace and glory; He does not withhold the good from those who live with integrity.
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, because God's glory illuminates it, and its lamp is the Lamb.
Night will no longer exist, and people will not need lamplight or sunlight, because the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign forever and ever.
for a flame
Look, Yahweh comes from far away, His anger burning and heavy with smoke. His lips are full of fury, and His tongue is like a consuming fire.
His breath is like an overflowing torrent that rises to the neck. [He comes] to sift the nations in a sieve of destruction and to put a bridle on the jaws of the peoples to lead [them] astray.
The sinners in Zion are afraid; trembling seizes the ungodly: "Who among us can dwell with a consuming fire? Who among us can dwell with ever-burning flames?"
If only You would tear the heavens open [and] come down, so that mountains would quake at Your presence--
as fire kindles the brushwood, and fire causes water to boil-- to make Your name known to Your enemies, so that nations will tremble at Your presence!
Look, the LORD will come with fire-- His chariots are like the whirlwind-- to execute His anger with fury, and His rebuke with flames of fire.
For the LORD will execute judgment on all flesh with His fiery sword, and many will be slain by the LORD.
"As they leave, they will see the dead bodies of the men who have rebelled against Me; for their maggots will never die, their fire will never go out, and they will be a horror to all mankind."
Now the people began complaining openly before the LORD about hardship. When the LORD heard, His anger burned, and the fire from the LORD blazed among them and consumed the outskirts of the camp.
Then the people cried out to Moses, and he prayed to the LORD, and the fire died down.
So that place was named Taberah, because the LORD's fire had blazed among them.
Fire also came out from the LORD and consumed the 250 men who were presenting the incense.
Smoke rose from His nostrils, and consuming fire [came] from His mouth; coals were set ablaze by it.
You will make them [burn] like a fiery furnace when you appear; the LORD will engulf them in His wrath, and fire will devour them.
Our God is coming; He will not be silent! Devouring fire precedes Him, and a storm rages around Him.
As fire burns a forest, as a flame blazes through mountains,
so pursue them with Your tempest and terrify them with Your storm.
Circumcise yourselves to the LORD; remove the foreskin of your hearts, men of Judah and residents of Jerusalem. Otherwise, My wrath will break out like fire and burn with no one to extinguish [it] because of your evil deeds.
Therefore, this is what the Lord God says: "Look, My anger-- My burning wrath-- is about to be poured out on this place, on man and beast, on the tree of the field, and on the fruit of the ground. My wrath will burn and not be quenched."
"For indeed, the day is coming, burning like a furnace, when all the arrogant and everyone who commits wickedness will become stubble. The coming day will consume them," says the LORD of Hosts, "not leaving them root or branches.
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its wings, and you will go out and playfully jump like calves from the stall.
You will trample the wicked, for they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day I am preparing," says the LORD of Hosts.
His winnowing shovel is in His hand, and He will clear His threshing floor and gather His wheat into the barn. But the chaff He will burn up with fire that never goes out."
and [to reward] with rest you who are afflicted, along with us. [This will take place] at the revelation of the Lord Jesus from heaven with His powerful angels,
taking vengeance with flaming fire on those who don't know God and on those who don't obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
These will pay the penalty of everlasting destruction, away from the Lord's presence and from His glorious strength,
for our God is a consuming fire.
I am not angry, but if it produces thorns and briers for Me, I will fight against it, trample it, and burn it to the ground.
Then the angel of the LORD went out and struck down 185,000 in the camp of the Assyrians. When the people got up the [next] morning-- there were all the dead bodies!
Fire goes before Him and burns up His foes on every side.
The mountains quake before Him, and the hills melt; the earth tremblesat His presence-- the world and all who live in it.
Who can withstand His indignation? Who can endure His burning anger? His wrath is poured out like fire, even rocks are shattered before Him.
For they will be consumed like entangled thorns, like a drunkard's drink, and like straw that is fully dry.
