Amos 5:18-20 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
18 Woe to those who yearn
for the day of the Lord!
What will the day of the Lord mean for you?
It will be darkness, not light!
19 As if someone fled from a lion
and a bear met him;
Or as if on entering the house
he rested his hand against the wall,
and a snake bit it.
20 Truly, the day of the Lord will be darkness, not light,
gloom without any brightness!
