Isaiah 13:4-5

4-5Thunder rolls off the mountains

like a mob huge and noisy—

Thunder of kingdoms in an uproar,

nations assembling for war.

God-of-the-Angel-Armies is calling

his army into battle formation.

They come from far-off countries,

they pour in across the horizon.

It's God on the move with the weapons of his wrath,

ready to destroy the whole country.

6-8Wail! God's Day of Judgment is near—

an avalanche crashing down from the Strong God!

Everyone paralyzed in the panic,

hysterical and unstrung,

Doubled up in pain

like a woman giving birth to a baby.

Horrified—everyone they see

is like a face out of a nightmare.
