“The great [DAY OF THE] LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. That day is a [DAY OF WRATH], a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness” (Zephaniah 1:14–15).
“[WOE UNTO YOU THAT DESIRE THE DAY] of the LORD! To what end is it for you? The day of the LORD is darkness, and not light. Shall not the day of the LORD be darkness, and not light? Even very dark, and no brightness in it” (Amos 5:18, 20).
“But [THE DAY OF THE LORD] will come as a [THIEF IN THE NIGHT]; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).
“[BUT YE, BRETHREN, ARE NOT IN DARKNESS, THAT THAT DAY SHOULD OVERTAKE YOU AS A THIEF]. Ye are all the children of light” (1 Thessalonians 5:4–5).
“[THEREFORE LET US NOT SLEEP, AS DO OTHERS; BUT LET US WATCH AND BE SOBER]. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. [FOR GOD HATH NOT APPOINTED US TO WRATH, BUT TO OBTAIN SALVATION BY OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST]” (1 Thessalonians 5:6-9).
“[THE SUN SHALL BE TURNED INTO DARKNESS, AND THE MOON INTO BLOOD, BEFORE THE GREAT AND THE TERRIBLE DAY OF THE] LORD come. And it shall come to pass, that [WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL ON THE NAME] of the LORD shall [BE DELIVERED]: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call” (Joel 2:31-32).
“Seek ye the LORD, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; [SEEK RIGHTEOUSNESS, SEEK MEEKNESS]: it may be ye shall be hid in the [DAY OF THE] LORD’s anger” (Zephaniah 2:3).
“[THE WICKED SHALL BE TURNED INTO HELL, AND ALL THE NATIONS THAT FORGET GOD]” (Psalm 9:17).
“[FOR AS A SNARE SHALL IT COME ON ALL THEM THAT DWELL ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH].

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Philippians 4:23).
