Cry, because the Lord’s day of judging is near;
    the Almighty is sending destruction.
People will be weak with fear,
    and their courage will melt away.
Everyone will be afraid.
    Pain and hurt will grab them;
    they will hurt like a woman giving birth to a baby.
They will look at each other in fear,
    with their faces red like fire.

    pain and anguish will grip(H) them;
    they will writhe like a woman in labor.(I)
They will look aghast at each other,
    their faces aflame.(J)
