New International Reader's Version
6 Cry out! The day of the Lord is near.
The Mighty One is coming to destroy the Babylonians.
7 Their hands won’t be able to help them.
Everyone’s heart will melt away in fear.
8 The people will be filled with terror.
Pain and suffering will grab hold of them.
They will groan with pain like a woman having a baby.
They’ll look at one another in terror.
Their faces will burn with shame.
