International Children’s Bible
The Coming Day of Judgment
2 Blow the trumpet in Jerusalem.
Shout a warning on my holy mountain.
Let all the people who live in the land shake with fear.
The Lord’s day of judging is coming.
The Lord’s day of judging is near.
2 It will be a dark, gloomy day.
It will be a cloudy and black day.
Like the light at sunrise,
the great and powerful army will spread over the mountains.
There has never been anything like it before.
And there will never be anything like it again.
3 The army destroys the land
like a burning fire.
The land in front of them is like the garden of Eden.
The land behind them is like an empty desert.
Nothing will escape them.
