It’s not all right.” For the Master, God-of-the-Angel-Armies, is bringing a day noisy with mobs of people, Jostling and stampeding in the Valley of Vision, knocking down walls and hollering to the mountains, “Attack!

God has left Judah exposed and defenseless.
This is why I said, “Just leave me alone; let me weep bitterly over this travesty. Don’t tell me it’s not that bad, or that everything will be all right. We’re talking about the destruction of my cherished people!”
