Zeph 1:15–16

1:15, 16 The day of the Lord is presented in frightful images recalling the theophany that accompanied the establishment of the Mosaic covenant at Mount Sinai (Ex. 19:16), the terms of which Judah has broken. Some suggest that “day of the Lord” here can be regarded as the day of His covenant, when the Lord establishes His covenant or enforces its provisions.
