Yahweh thunders his voice
before his army,
for his camp is very large;
for he is strong who obeys his command;
for the Day of Yahweh is great and very terrifying,
and who can survive it? Bible

“his camp is very large.” This refers to the large size of the army.

“survive it.” The Hebrew is “endure it,” but we think of “enduring” something as being able to put up with it. In this case, it means “survive it” or “live through it.” The vast majority of mankind will die in the Tribulation of the Day of the Lord.
