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,
16 ia day of trumpet blast and battle cry
jagainst the fortified cities
and against the lofty battlements.
17 kI will bring distress on mankind,
so that they shall walk llike the blind,
because they have sinned against the Lord;
mtheir blood shall be poured out like dust,
and their flesh nlike dung.
18 oNeither their silver nor their gold
shall be able to deliver them
on the day of the wrath of the Lord.
pIn the fire of his jealousy,
qall the earth shall be consumed;
rfor a full and sudden end
he will make of all the inhabitants of the earth.
2 Gather together, yes, gather,
O sshameless nation,
—before the day passes away ulike chaff—
vbefore there comes upon you
the burning anger of the Lord,
before there comes upon you
the day of the anger of the Lord.
who do his just commands;2
yseek righteousness; seek humility;
on the day of the anger of the Lord.
