[ Read Chapter | Discuss these Verses ]
- 16 Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts, the Lord, "There is wailing R162 in all the plazas, And in all the streets they say, `Alas! Alas!' They also call the farmer R163 to mourning And professional R164 F60 mourners to lamentation. 17 "And in all the vineyards R165 there is wailing, Because I will pass through the midst of you," says the LORD. 18 Alas, you who are longing for the day R166 of the LORD, For what purpose will the day of the LORD be to you? It will be darkness R167 and not light; 19 As when a man flees R168 from a lion And a bear meets him, Or F61 goes home, leans his hand against the wall And a snake bites him. 20 Will not the day of the LORD be darkness R169 instead of light, Even gloom with no brightness in it?
