Blow the horn in Zion;(A)
sound the alarm on My holy mountain!
Let all the residents of the land tremble,
for the Day of the Lord is coming;(B)
in fact, it is near—
a day of darkness and gloom,(C)
a day of clouds and dense overcast,(D)

such as never existed in ages past(F)
and never will again
in all the generations to come.(G)

The Day of the Lord

18 Woe to you who long for the Day of the Lord!(A)

It will be darkness and not light.(B)

a day of destruction and desolation,
a day of darkness(B) and gloom,
a day of clouds and blackness,(C)
