15 xAlas for the day!
For ythe day of the Lord is at hand;
It shall come as destruction from the Almighty.
16 Is not the food zcut off before our eyes,
aJoy and gladness from the house of our God?
Storehouses are in shambles;
Barns are broken down,
For the grain has withered.
18 How bthe animals groan!
The herds of cattle are restless,
Because they have no pasture;
Even the flocks of sheep 4suffer punishment.
LXX, Vg. are made desolate
