but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.
but a terrifying expectation of judgment and THE FURY OF A FIRE WHICH WILL CONSUME THE ADVERSARIES.
There will be nothing to look forward to but the terrible expectation of God’s judgment and the raging fire that will consume his enemies.
and are left on our own to face the Judgment--and a mighty fierce judgment it will be!
But only a great fear of being judged, and of the fire of wrath which will be the destruction of the haters of God.
but a fearful prospect of judgment, and a fury of fire that will consume the adversaries.
but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
