18 Alas, you who are longing for the aday of the Lord,
For what purpose will the day of the Lord be to you?
It will be bdarkness and not light;
19 As when a man aflees from a lion
And a bear meets him,
1Or goes home, leans his hand against the wall
And a snake bites him.
20 Will not the day of the Lord be adarkness instead of light,
Even gloom with no brightness in it?
21 “I hate, I areject your festivals,
22 “Even though you aoffer up to Me burnt offerings and your grain offerings,
I will not accept them;
And I will not even look at the bpeace offerings of your fatlings.
I will not even listen to the sound of your harps.
24 “But let ajustice roll down like waters
And righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
Lit like to smell
Or You presented Me with the sacrifices and a grain offering
Or Sakkuth (Saturn) or shrine of your Moloch
Or Kaiwan (Saturn) or stands of
Or your star gods
