The Day of the Lord a Dark Day
18Alas for you who desire the day of the Lord!
Why do you want the day of the Lord?
It is darkness, not light;19as if someone fled from a lion,
and was met by a bear;
or went into the house and rested a hand against the wall,
and was bitten by a snake.20Is not the day of the Lord darkness, not light,
and gloom with no brightness in it?
