2:12 Indeed, the Lord who commands armies has planned a day of judgment,
for all the high and mighty,
for all who are proud – they will be humiliated;
2:13 for all the cedars of Lebanon,
that are so high and mighty,
for all the oaks of Bashan;
2:14 for all the tall mountains,
for all the high hills,
2:15 for every high tower,
for every fortified wall,
2:16 for all the large ships,
for all the impressive ships.
2:17 Proud men will be humiliated,
arrogant men will be brought low;
the Lord alone will be exalted
in that day.
2:18 The worthless idols will be completely eliminated.
2:19 They will go into caves in the rocky cliffs
and into holes in the ground,
trying to escape the dreadful judgment of the Lord
and his royal splendor,
when he rises up to terrify the earth.
