The Day of the Lord

18 Woe to you who long
    for the day of the Lord!(A)
Why do you long for the day of the Lord?(B)
    That day will be darkness,(C) not light.(D)
19 It will be as though a man fled from a lion
    only to meet a bear,(E)
as though he entered his house
    and rested his hand on the wall
    only to have a snake bite him.(F)

14 The great day of the Lord(A) is near(B)
    near and coming quickly.
The cry on the day of the Lord is bitter;
    the Mighty Warrior shouts his battle cry.

    a day of distress and anguish,
        a day of trouble and ruin,
    a day of darkness(C) and gloom,
        a day of clouds and blackness(D)
16     a day of trumpet and battle cry(E)
against the fortified cities
    and against the corner towers.(F)
