12 “Let the nations be roused;
    let them advance into the Valley of Jehoshaphat,(A)
for there I will sit
    to judge(B) all the nations on every side.
13 Swing the sickle,(C)
    for the harvest(D) is ripe.
Come, trample the grapes,(E)
    for the winepress(F) is full
    and the vats overflow—
so great is their wickedness!”

14 Multitudes,(G) multitudes
    in the valley(H) of decision!
For the day of the Lord(I) is near
    in the valley of decision.(J)
15 The sun and moon will be darkened,
    and the stars no longer shine.(K)
16 The Lord will roar(L) from Zion
    and thunder from Jerusalem;(M)
    the earth and the heavens will tremble.(N)
But the Lord will be a refuge(O) for his people,
    a stronghold(P) for the people of Israel.
