Blow the horn in Zion;(A)
sound the alarm on my holy mountain!
Let all the residents of the land tremble,
for the day of the Lord is coming;(B)
in fact, it is near—
a day of darkness and gloom,(C)
a day of clouds and total darkness,(D)
like the dawn spreading over the mountains;
a great and strong people(E) appears,
such as never existed in ages past(F)
and never will again
in all the generations to come.(G)

A fire devours in front of them,(H)
and behind them a flame blazes.
The land in front of them
is like the garden of Eden,(I)
but behind them,
it is like a desert wasteland;(J)
there is no escape from them.
