The gaiety of the harp ceases.

As the [fn]shaking of an olive tree,
As the gleanings when the grape harvest is over.

They cry out from the [fn]west concerning the majesty of the LORD.

The name of the LORD, the God of Israel,
In the [fn]coastlands of the sea.

But I say,[fn]Woe to me! [fn]Woe to me! Alas for me!
The treacherous deal treacherously,
And the treacherous deal very treacherously.”

[fn]Confront you, O inhabitant of the earth.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:18 - Then it will be that he who flees the [fn]report of disaster will fall into the pit,
And he who [fn]climbs out of the pit will be caught in the snare;
For the windows [fn]above are opened, and the foundations of the earth shake.

The earth is split through,
The earth is shaken violently.

And it totters like a [fn]shack,
For its transgression is heavy upon it,
And it will fall, never to rise again.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:21 - So it will happen in that day,
That the LORD will punish the host of [fn]heaven on high,
And the kings of the earth on earth.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 24:22 - They will be gathered together
Like prisoners in the [fn]dungeon,
And will be confined in prison;
And after many days they will be punished.

For the LORD of hosts will reign on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
And His glory will be before His elders.
