Behold, Yahweh will make the earth empty,
make it waste,
turn it upside down and scatter its inhabitants. Bible other translations

“will make the earth empty.” The Great Tribulation and Battle of Armageddon will kill most of the people on earth and destroy much of the earth itself. See commentary on Isaiah 13:9 and Daniel 12:1. The Hebrew text is written as if these things were happening now, but the prophecy is of the future.
