10 For the (A)stars of heaven and their constellations
Will not flash their light;
The (B)sun will be dark when it rises
And the moon will not shed its light.

23 Then the (A)moon will be ashamed and the sun be put to shame,
For the (B)Lord of armies will reign on (C)Mount Zion and in Jerusalem,
And His glory will be before His elders.

And when I (A)extinguish you,
I will (B)cover the heavens and darken their (C)stars;
I will cover the (D)sun with a cloud
And the moon will not give its light.

10 Before them the earth (A)quakes,
The heavens tremble,
The (B)sun and the moon become dark,
And the stars lose their brightness.

31 The (A)sun will be turned into darkness,

15 The (A)sun and moon have become dark,
And the stars have lost their brightness.
16 The Lord (B)roars from Zion
And (C)utters His voice from Jerusalem,
And the (D)heavens and the earth quake.
But the Lord is a (E)refuge for His people,
And a (F)stronghold for the sons of Israel.
17 Then you will (G)know that I am the Lord your God,
Dwelling on Zion, My (H)holy mountain.
So Jerusalem will be (I)holy,
And (J)strangers will no longer pass through it.

Judah Will Be Blessed

18 And on that day
The (K)mountains will drip with [a]sweet wine,
And the hills will (L)flow with milk,
And all the (M)brooks of Judah will flow with water;
And a (N)spring will go out from the house of the Lord
And water the Valley of [b]Shittim.
19 Egypt will become a wasteland,
And Edom will become a desolate wilderness,
Because of the (O)violence [c]done to the sons of Judah,
In whose land they have shed innocent blood.
20 But Judah will be (P)inhabited forever,
And Jerusalem for all generations.
21 And I will (Q)avenge their blood which I have not avenged,
For the Lord dwells in Zion.

The Glorious Return

29 “But immediately after the (A)tribulation of those days (B)the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and (C)the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 And then (D)the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see (E)the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky with power and great glory. 31 And (F)He will send forth His angels with (G)a great trumpet blast, and they will gather together His [a](H)elect from (I)the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.

Parable of the Fig Tree

32 “Now learn the parable from the fig tree: as soon as its branch has become tender and sprouts its leaves, you know that summer is near; 33 so you too, when you see all these things, [b]recognize that [c]He is near, right (J)at the [d]door. 34 Truly I say to you, (K)this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. 35 (L)Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.

The Sixth Seal: Terror

12 And I looked when He broke the sixth seal, and there was a great (A)earthquake; and the (B)sun became as black as (C)sackcloth made of hair, and the whole moon became like blood; 13 and (D)the stars of the sky fell to the earth, (E)as a fig tree drops its unripe figs when shaken by a great wind. 14 (F)The sky was split apart like a scroll when it is rolled up, and (G)every mountain and island was removed from its place. 15 Then (H)the kings of the earth and the eminent people, and the commanders and the wealthy and the strong, and every slave and free person hid themselves in the caves and among the rocks of the mountains; 16 and they *(I)said to the mountains and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the [a]sight of Him (J)who sits on the throne, and from the (K)wrath of the Lamb; 17 for (L)the great day of Their wrath has come, and (M)who is able to stand?”
