The Day of the Lord

Blow the ram’s horn in Zion,
    sound the alarm on My holy mountain!

All the inhabitants of the earth will tremble,
    because the day of the Lord has come,
because it is near—
    a day of darkness and gloom,
    a day of clouds and thick darkness.
Like blackness spreading over the mountain,
    a great and mighty army comes,
such as was never before,
    and will never be again,
    even through the years of all generations.

Before them fire devours,
    and behind them a flame blazes;
the land is like the garden of Eden before them,
    but behind them a desolate wasteland,
    and nothing escapes them.

An Army of Locusts

Blow the trumpet(A) in Zion;(B)
    sound the alarm on my holy hill.(C)

Let all who live in the land tremble,
    for the day of the Lord(D) is coming.
It is close at hand(E)
    a day of darkness(F) and gloom,(G)
    a day of clouds(H) and blackness.(I)
Like dawn spreading across the mountains
    a large and mighty army(J) comes,
such as never was in ancient times(K)
    nor ever will be in ages to come.

Before them fire(L) devours,
    behind them a flame blazes.
Before them the land is like the garden of Eden,(M)
    behind them, a desert waste(N)
    nothing escapes them.
