Isaiah 13:5-7 New International Version (NIV)

They come from faraway lands,
    from the ends of the heavens
the Lord and the weapons of his wrath
    to destroy the whole country.

Wail, for the day of the Lord is near;
    it will come like destruction from the Almighty.[a]
Because of this, all hands will go limp,
    every heart will melt with fear.
