Howl ye; for the day of the Lord is at hand; it shall come as a destruction from the Almighty.

Therefore shall all hands be faint, and every man's heart shall melt:

And they shall be afraid: pangs and sorrows shall take hold of them; they shall be in pain as a woman that travaileth: they shall be amazed one at another; their faces shall be as flames.

Wail,(A) for the day(B) of the Lord is near;
    it will come like destruction(C) from the Almighty.[a](D)
Because of this, all hands will go limp,(E)
    every heart will melt with fear.(F)
Terror(G) will seize them,
    pain and anguish will grip(H) them;
    they will writhe like a woman in labor.(I)
They will look aghast at each other,
    their faces aflame.(J)
