Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble;
For the day of the LORD is coming,
For it is at hand:

A day of darkness and gloominess,
A day of clouds and thick darkness,
Like the morning clouds spread over the mountains.

The like of whom has never been;
Nor will there ever be any such after them,
Even for many successive generations.

And behind them a flame burns;
The land is like the Garden of Eden before them,
And behind them a desolate wilderness;
Surely nothing shall escape them.

And like swift steeds, so they run.

Over mountaintops they leap,
Like the noise of a flaming fire that devours the stubble,
Like a strong people set in battle array.

Before them the people writhe in pain;
All faces are drained of color.fn

Every one marches in his own column.fn
Though they lunge between the weapons,
They are not cut down.fn

They run on the wall;
They climb into the houses,
They enter at the windows like a thief.

The heavens tremble;
The sun and moon grow dark,
And the stars diminish their brightness.

Let the priests, who minister to the LORD,
Weep between the porch and the altar;

And pity His people.
