Lift up your voice to them!
Wave your hand, that they may go
into the gates of the nobles.
yes, I have called my mighty men
for my anger,
even my proudly exulting ones.
is in the mountains as of a great people,
the noise of an uproar of the kingdoms
of the nations gathered together!
Yahweh of Armies is mustering the army for the battle.
from the uttermost part of heaven,
even Yahweh and the weapons of his indignation,
to destroy the whole land.
It will come as destruction from the Almighty.
and everyone’s heart will melt.
Pangs and sorrows will seize them.
They will be in pain like a woman in labor.
They will look in amazement one at another.
Their faces will be faces of flame.
will not give their light.
The sun will be dark when it rises,
and the moon will not shine forth its light.
even a person than the pure gold of Ophir.
and the earth will be shaken out of its place
in the wrath of Yahweh of Armies,
and in the day of his fierce anger.
and like sheep that no one gathers,
they will each turn to their own people,
and will each flee to their own land.
Everyone who is captured will fall by the sword.
Their houses will be ransacked
and their wives raped.

and as for gold, they will not delight in it.
and they will have no pity on the fruit of the womb.
Their eyes will not spare children.
the beauty of the Chaldeans’ pride,
will be like when God overthrew
Sodom and Gomorrah.
neither will it be lived in from generation to generation.
The Arabian will not pitch a tent there,
neither will shepherds make their flocks lie down there.
and their houses will be full of jackals.
Ostriches will dwell there,
and wild goats will frolic there.
and jackals in the pleasant palaces.
Her time is near to come,
and her days will not be prolonged.
