V. Final Suffering And Deliverance (12:1–14:21)

The phrase on that day is repeated sixteen times in this unit, indicating its setting in the eschaton. The themes of chs. 9-11 are repeated here but with greater intensity (cf. Baldwin, 187, and introduction above). The second section of the book builds to a climax in ch. 14 where the events of that day are described.
