Isaiah 13:9-10

Context

13:9 Look, the Lord’s day of judgment 1  is coming;

it is a day of cruelty and savage, raging anger, 2 

destroying 3  the earth 4 

and annihilating its sinners.

13:10 Indeed the stars in the sky and their constellations

no longer give out their light; 5 

the sun is darkened as soon as it rises,

and the moon does not shine. 6 

1 tn Heb “the day of the Lord.”

3 tn Heb “making desolate.”

4 tn Or “land” (KJV, NAB, NASB, NIV, NLT).

5 tn Heb “do not flash forth their light.”

6 tn Heb “does not shed forth its light.”
