Isaiah 13:6–11 — The New International Version (NIV)

Wail, for the day of the Lord is near;

it will come like destruction from the Almighty.

Because of this, all hands will go limp,

every heart will melt with fear.

Terror will seize them,

pain and anguish will grip them;

they will writhe like a woman in labor.

They will look aghast at each other,

their faces aflame.

See, the day of the Lord is coming

—a cruel day, with wrath and fierce anger—

to make the land desolate

and destroy the sinners within it.

10 The stars of heaven and their constellations

will not show their light.

The rising sun will be darkened

and the moon will not give its light.

11 I will punish the world for its evil,

the wicked for their sins.

I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty

and will humble the pride of the ruthless.

Isaiah 13:6–11 — King James Version (KJV 1900)

Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand;

It shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

Therefore shall all hands be faint,

And every man’s heart shall melt:

And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them;

They shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth:

They shall be amazed one at another;

Their faces shall be as flames.

Behold, the day of the Lord cometh,

Cruel both with wrath and fierce anger,

To lay the land desolate:

And he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it.

10 For the stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their light:

The sun shall be darkened in his going forth,

And the moon shall not cause her light to shine.

11 And I will punish the world for their evil,

And the wicked for their iniquity;

And I will cause the arrogancy of the proud to cease,

And will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.

Isaiah 13:6–11 — New Living Translation (NLT)

Scream in terror, for the day of the Lord has arrived—

the time for the Almighty to destroy.

Every arm is paralyzed with fear.

Every heart melts,

and people are terrified.

Pangs of anguish grip them,

like those of a woman in labor.

They look helplessly at one another,

their faces aflame with fear.

For see, the day of the Lord is coming—

the terrible day of his fury and fierce anger.

The land will be made desolate,

and all the sinners destroyed with it.

10 The heavens will be black above them;

the stars will give no light.

The sun will be dark when it rises,

and the moon will provide no light.

11 “I, the Lord, will punish the world for its evil

and the wicked for their sin.

I will crush the arrogance of the proud

and humble the pride of the mighty.
