The Day of the Lord

Wail out loud, because the Day of the Lord is near.
    It will come like destruction from the Almighty!
Because of this, every hand[a] will go limp,
    and every man’s courage[b] will melt.
They will be terrified;
    pain and anguish will seize them;
they’ll writhe like a woman in labor.
    They’ll look aghast at one another;
        and[c] their faces will be ablaze with fear.[d]
