Judgment on the Earth1 Behold, the Lord a lays the earth waste, devastates it, distorts its surface and scatters its inhabitants. 2 And the people will be like the priest, the servant like his master, the maid like her mistress, the buyer like the seller, the lender like the borrower, the b creditor like the debtor. 3 The earth will be completely laid waste and completely despoiled, for the Lord has spoken this word. 4 The c earth mourns and withers, the world fades and withers, the d exalted of the people of the earth fade away. 5 The earth is also e polluted ▼
▼ Lit underby its inhabitants, for they transgressed laws, violated statutes g broke the everlasting covenant. 6 Therefore, a h curse devours the earth, and those who live in it are held guilty. Therefore, the i inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men are left. 7 The j new wine mourns,
The vine decays,
All the merry-hearted sigh.
8 The k gaiety of tambourines ceases,
The noise of revelers stops,
The gaiety of the harp ceases.
9 They do not drink wine with song;
l Strong drink is m bitter to those who drink it.
10 The n city of chaos is broken down;
o Every house is shut up so that none may enter.
11 There is an p outcry in the streets concerning the wine;
q All joy ▼
▼ Lit is darkenedturns to gloom.
The gaiety of the earth is banished.
12 Desolation is left in the city
And the s gate is battered to ruins.
13 For t thus it will be in the midst of the earth among the peoples,
As the ▼
▼ Lit strikingshaking of an olive tree,
As the gleanings when the grape harvest is over.
14 v They raise their voices, they shout for joy;
They cry out from the ▼
▼ Lit seawest concerning the majesty of the Lord.
15 Therefore x glorify the Lord in the ▼
▼ Lit region of lighteast,
The z name of the Lord, the God of Israel,
In the ▼
▼ Or islands, ab coastlands of the sea.
16 From the ac ends of the earth we hear songs ad “Glory to the Righteous One,”
But I say ▼
▼ Lit Wasting to me!, af “Woe to me! ▼
▼ Lit Wasting to me!Woe to me! Alas for me!
The ah treacherous deal treacherously,
And the treacherous deal very treacherously.”
17 ai Terror and pit and snare
▼ Lit Are upon youConfront you, O inhabitant of the earth.
18 Then it will be that he who flees the ▼
▼ Lit sound of terrorreport of disaster will fall into the pit,
And he who ▼
▼ Lit goes up from the midst ofclimbs out of the pit will be caught in the snare;
For the am windows ▼
▼ Lit from the height; i.e. heavenabove are opened, and the ao foundations of the earth shake.
19 ap The earth is broken asunder,
The earth is aq split through,
The earth is shaken violently.
20 The earth ar reels to and fro like a drunkard
And it totters like a ▼
▼ Or hutshack,
For its at transgression is heavy upon it,
And it will fall au never to rise again.
21 So it will happen in that day,
That the Lord will av punish the host of ▼
▼ Lit the height in the heightheaven on high,
And the ax kings of the earth on earth.
22 They will be gathered together
Like ay prisoners in the ▼
▼ Lit pitdungeon,
And will be confined in prison;
And after many days they will ba be punished.
23 Then the bb moon will be abashed and the sun ashamed,
For the bc Lord of hosts will reign on bd Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
And His glory will be before His elders.
