The earth quakes before them,
The heavens tremble,
The sun and the moon grow dark
And the stars lose their brightness.(A)
The Lord utters His voice before His army,
For His camp is very great,
Because strong and powerful is he who [obediently] carries out His word.
For the day of the Lord is indeed great and very terrible [causing dread];
Who can endure it?(B)
“Even now,” says the Lord,
“Turn and come to Me with all your heart [in genuine repentance],
With fasting and weeping and mourning [until every barrier is removed and the broken fellowship is restored];
New International Version
10 Before them the earth shakes,(A)
the heavens tremble,(B)
the sun and moon are darkened,(C)
and the stars no longer shine.(D)
11 The Lord(E) thunders(F)
at the head of his army;(G)
his forces are beyond number,
and mighty is the army that obeys his command.
The day of the Lord is great;(H)
it is dreadful.
Who can endure it?(I)
