2:2 before God’s decree becomes reality 1 and the day of opportunity disappears like windblown chaff, 2
before the Lord’s raging anger 3 overtakes 4 you –
before the day of the Lord’s angry judgment overtakes you!
2:3 Seek the Lord’s favor, 5 all you humble people 6 of the land who have obeyed his commands! 7
Strive to do what is right! 8 Strive to be humble! 9
Maybe you will be protected 10 on the day of the Lord’s angry judgment.
