Holman Christian Standard Bible
2 before the decree(A) takes effect
and the day passes like chaff,
before the burning of the Lord’s anger overtakes you,
before the day of the Lord’s anger overtakes you.
3 Seek the Lord,(B) all you humble(C) of the earth,
who carry out what He commands.
Seek righteousness, seek humility;
perhaps you will be concealed(D)
on the day of the Lord’s anger.
Judgment against the Nations
4 For Gaza will be abandoned,
and Ashkelon will become a ruin.
Ashdod will be driven out at noon,
and Ekron will be uprooted.(E)
