Their silver and their gold will not be able to rescue them on the day of the LORD's wrath. The whole earth will be consumed by the fire of His jealousy. For He will make a complete, yes, a horrifying end of all the inhabitants of the earth.
before the decree takes effect and the day passes like chaff, before the burning of the LORD's anger overtakes you, before the day of the LORD's anger overtakes you.
For the Lord God of Hosts had a day of tumult, trampling, and bewilderment in the Valley of Vision-- people shouting and crying to the mountains;
How awful that day will be! There will be none like it! It will be a time of trouble for Jacob, but he will be delivered out of it.
Woe to you who long for the Day of the LORD! What will the Day of the LORD be for you? It will be darkness and not light.
It will be like a man who flees from a lion only to have a bear confront him. He goes home and rests his hand against the wall only to have a snake bite him.
Won't the Day of the LORD be darkness rather than light, even gloom without any brightness in it?
because these are days of vengeance to fulfill all the things that are written.
Woe to pregnant women and nursing mothers in those days, for there will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people.
But because of your hardness and unrepentant heart you are storing up wrath for yourself in the day of wrath, when God's righteous judgment is revealed.
But by the same word the present heavens and earth are held in store for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
because the great day of Their wrath has come! And who is able to stand?"
a day of darkness
If only that day had turned to darkness! May God above not care about it, or light shine on it.
May darkness and gloom reclaim it, and a cloud settle over it. May an eclipse of the sun terrify it.
If only darkness had taken that night away! May it not appear among the days of the year or be listed in the calendar.
Yes, may that night be barren; may no joyful shout be heard in it.
Let those who curse [certain] days cast a spell on it, those who are skilled in rousing Leviathan.
a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and dense overcast, like the dawn spreading over the mountains; a great and strong people [appears], such as never existed in ages past and never will again in all the generations to come.
The LORD raises His voice in the presence of His army. His camp is very large; Those who carry out His command are powerful. Indeed, the Day of the LORD is terrible and dreadful-- who can endure it?
