(A)They come from a distant land,
    from the end of the heavens,
the Lord and the weapons of his indignation,
    to destroy the whole land.[a]

(B)Wail, for (C)the day of the Lord is near;
    as destruction from the Almighty[b] it will come!
Therefore all hands will be feeble,
    and every human heart (D)will melt.
