It will happen that he who flees from the noise of the fear
will fall into the pit,
and he who comes up out of the middle of the pit
will be taken in the snare;
for the windows on high are opened,
and the foundations of the earth tremble. Bible other translations

“will fall into a pit.” The prophecy that during the Great Tribulation people will flee one disaster only to have a different disaster happen to them is also graphically portrayed in Amos 5:19. For more on the Day of Yahweh (the Great Tribulation), see commentary on Isaiah 13:9.
