Isaiah 13:4-104 The sound aof a tumult is on the mountains
as of a great multitude!
The sound of an uproar of kingdoms,
of nations gathering together!
bThe Lord of hosts is mustering
a host for battle.
5 cThey come from a distant land,
from the end of the heavens,
the Lord and the weapons of his indignation,
to destroy the whole land. ▼
▼Or earth; also verse 9
6 eWail, for fthe day of the Lord is near;
as destruction from the Almighty ▼
▼The Hebrew words for destruction and almighty sound alikeit will come!
7Therefore all hands will be feeble,
and every human heart hwill melt.
8They will be dismayed:
ipangs and agony will seize them;
jthey will be in anguish like a woman in labor.
They will look aghast at one another;
their faces will be aflame.
9 Behold, kthe day of the Lord comes,
cruel, with wrath and fierce anger,
to make the land a desolation
and lto destroy its sinners from it.
10 mFor the stars of the heavens and their constellations
will not give their light;
nthe sun will be dark at its rising,
and the moon will not shed its light.
