19 In my zeal, in the fire of my fury,[a] I declare that on that day there will be a great earthquake[b] in the land of Israel. 20 The fish of the sea, the birds of the sky, the wild beasts, all the things that creep on the ground, and all people who live on the face of the earth will shake[c] at my presence. The mountains will topple, the cliffs[d] will fall, and every wall will fall to the ground. 21 I will call for a sword to attack[e] Gog[f] on all my mountains, declares the Sovereign Lord; every man’s sword will be against his brother.
