Isaiah 13:6–12

Wail, for the day of Yahweh is near;

it will come like destruction from Shaddai!c

Therefore all hands will grow slack,

and every human heart will melt,

and they will be dismayed.

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

Look! The day of Yahweh is coming,

cruel and wrath and the burning of anger,

to make the earth a desolation,

and he will destroy its sinners from it.

10 For the stars of the heavens and their constellations will not flash forth their light;

the sun will keep back when it comes out,

and the moon will not cause its light to shine.

11 And I will punish the world for its evil

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.

12 I will make humanity more rare than gold

and humankind more than the gold of Ophir.
