Isaiah 13:6–13

Wail,w for the dayx of the Lord is near;

it will come like destructiony from the Almighty.a z

Because of this, all hands will go limp,a

every heart will melt with fear.b

Terrorc will seize them,

pain and anguish will gripd them;

they will writhe like a woman in labor.e

They will look aghast at each other,

their faces aflame.f

See, the dayg of the Lord is coming

—a cruelh day, with wrathi and fierce angerj

to make the land desolate

and destroy the sinners within it.

10 The stars of heaven and their constellations

will not show their light.k

The rising sunl will be darkenedm

and the moon will not give its light.n

11 I will punisho the world for its evil,

the wickedp for their sins.

I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughtyq

and will humbler the pride of the ruthless.s

12 I will make peoplet scarcer than pure gold,

more rare than the gold of Ophir.u

13 Therefore I will make the heavens tremble;v

and the earth will shakew from its place

at the wrathx of the Lord Almighty,

in the day of his burning anger.y
