The Day of the Lord a Dark Day

18

Alas for you who desire the day of the Lord!

Why do you want the day of the Lord?

It is darkness, not light;

19

as 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.

20

Is not the day of the Lord darkness, not light,

and gloom with no brightness in it?

 

21

I hate, I despise your festivals,

and I take no delight in your solemn assemblies.

22

Even though you offer me your burnt offerings and grain offerings,

I will not accept them;

and the offerings of well-being of your fatted animals

I will not look upon.

23

Take away from me the noise of your songs;

I will not listen to the melody of your harps.

24

But let justice roll down like waters,

and righteousness like an ever-flowing stream.
