Bible: Isa 13:6-13
13:6 Wail, for the
it comes with all the destructive power of the sovereign judge. 2
13:7 For this reason all hands hang limp, 3
every human heart loses its courage. 4
13:8 They panic –
cramps and pain seize hold of them
like those of a woman who is straining to give birth.
They look at one another in astonishment;
their faces are flushed red. 5
13:9 Look, the
it is a day of cruelty and savage, raging anger, 7
and annihilating its sinners.
13:10 Indeed the stars in the sky and their constellations
no longer give out their light; 10
the sun is darkened as soon as it rises,
and the moon does not shine. 1113:11 12
I will punish the world for its evil, 13
and wicked people for their sin.
I will put an end to the pride of the insolent,
I will bring down the arrogance of tyrants. 14
13:12 I will make human beings more scarce than pure gold,
and people more scarce 15 than gold from Ophir.
13:13 So I will shake the heavens, 16
and the earth will shake loose from its foundation, 17
because of the fury of the
in the day he vents his raging anger. 18
