Tree of Life Version
2 Blow the shofar in Zion!
Sound an alarm on My holy mountain!
Let all living in the land tremble—
for the day of Adonai is coming—
surely it is near![a]
2 A day of darkness and gloominess,
a day of clouds and thick darkness,
as blackness spreads over the mountains.
A great and mighty people—
from antiquity there was never anything like it,
nor after it ever again from generation to generation.[b]
3 A fire devours before them
and behind them flame blazes up.
Like the Garden of Eden is the land before them,
and behind them a desolate wilderness.
Nothing at all ever escapes them.
