7 Because of this, all hands will go limp,a
every heart will melt with fear.b
8 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
9 See, the dayg of the Lord is coming
to make the land desolate
and destroy the sinners within it.
will not show their light.k
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
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
