Woe to you who long for the day of the Lord!
Why do you long for the day of the Lord? That day will be darkness, not light.
It will be as though a man fled from a lion only to meet a bear, as though he entered his house and rested his hand on the wall only to have a snake bite him.
Will not the day of the Lord be darkness, not light—pitch-dark, without a ray of brightness?
