Wail, for the day of Yahweh is near;
    it will come like destruction from Shaddai![a]
Therefore all hands will grow slack,
    and every human heart will melt,
    and they will be dismayed.
Pangs and labor pains will seize them;
    they will tremble like a woman giving birth.
They will stare at one another,[b]
    their faces flushing.[c]
