And fI will cut off man from off the land, saith the Lord.
And upon all the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
And rthose that have not sought the Lord, nor inquired for him.
7 sHold thy peace at the presence of the Lord God:
For tthe day of the Lord is at hand:
For uthe Lord hath prepared a sacrifice,
9 In the same day also will I punish all those zthat leap on the threshold,
Which fill their masters’ houses with violence and deceit.
That there shall be the noise of a cry from athe fish gate,
And a great crashing from the hills.
For all fthe merchant people are cut down;
All they that bear silver are cut off.
mThat say in their heart, The Lord will not do good, neither will he do evil.
13 Therefore their goods shall become na booty, and their houses a desolation:
oThey shall also build houses, but not inhabit them;
It is near, and hasteth greatly,
Even the voice of the day of the Lord:
15 vThat day is a day of wrath,
yA day of darkness and gloominess,
Against the fenced cities, and against the high btowers.
Because they have sinned against the Lord:
18 hNeither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver them
iIn the day of the Lord’s wrath;
For nhe shall make even a speedy riddance of all them that dwell in the land.
