Bible: Isaiah 13:9-13

13:9 Look, the Lord’s day of judgment 1  is coming;

it is a day of cruelty and savage, raging anger, 2 

destroying 3  the earth 4 

and annihilating its sinners.

13:10 Indeed the stars in the sky and their constellations

no longer give out their light; 5 

the sun is darkened as soon as it rises,

and the moon does not shine. 6 

13:11 7 

I will punish the world for its evil, 8 

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. 9 

13:12 I will make human beings more scarce than pure gold,

and people more scarce 10  than gold from Ophir.

13:13 So I will shake the heavens, 11 

and the earth will shake loose from its foundation, 12 

because of the fury of the Lord who commands armies,

in the day he vents his raging anger. 13
