5 “This is what the Lord [a]God says: ‘A disaster, a unique disaster, behold, it is coming!6 An end [b]is coming; the end has come! It has awakened against you; behold, it has come!7 Your [c]doom has come to you, you inhabitant of the land. The time has come, the day is near—panic rather than joyful shouting on the mountains.
1 Corinthians 7:29-31New American Standard Bible (NASB)
29 But this I say, brothers, the time has been shortened, so that from now on those who have wives should be as though they had none;30 and those who weep, as though they did not weep; and those who rejoice, as though they did not rejoice; and those who buy, as though they did not possess;31 and those who use the world, as though they did not make full use of it; for the present form of this world is passing away.
8 You too be patient; strengthen your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is near.9 Do not [a]complain, brothers and sisters, against one another, so that you may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing [b]right at the [c]door.
