The final days (Joel 1:15-1:15)

“O!

What a day!

The day of Yahweh

Is near!

Destruction

Comes

From the Almighty One!”

The final days or the great day of Yahweh was near. Destruction from the almighty one, El Shaddai, is a play on words since the Hebrew word for destruction is similar to the Hebrew name for the almighty one.
