it will come like destruction from Shaddai!c
and every human heart will melt,
Pangs and labor pains will seize them;
they will tremble like a woman giving birth.
⌊They will stare at one another⌋,d
⌊their faces flushing⌋.e
cruel and wrath and the burning of anger,
to make the earth a desolation,
and he will destroy its sinners from it.
the sun will keep back when it comes out,
and the moon will not cause its light to shine.
and the wicked for their iniquity.
And I will put an end to the pride of the arrogant,
and I will bring the haughtiness of tyrants low.
and humankind more than the gold of Ophir.
