Joel 2:1-3 GOD’S WORD Translation (GW)

The Day of the Lord

Blow the ram’s horn in Zion.
Sound the alarm on my holy mountain.
    Everyone who lives in the land should tremble,
        because the day of the Lord is coming.
Certainly, it is near.
    It is a day of darkness and gloom,
        a day of clouds and overcast skies.
            A large and mighty army
                will spread over the mountains like the dawn.[a]
Nothing like this has ever happened.
Nothing like this will ever happen again.

In front of this army a fire burns.
    Behind it flames are blazing.
In front of it the land is like the garden of Eden.
    Behind it the land is like a barren desert.
        Nothing escapes it!
