Thus, there is a fusion of the swarm of locusts with the day of Yahweh. The earth would quake. The heavens would tremble. The sun and the moon would become dark. The stars would not shine. Yahweh would utter his strong voice before this vast numberless army. They all would obey his command. The day of Yahweh would be a terrible, but great day. Who would be able to endure this?
The day of Yahweh was coming to Zion. Thus, they had to blow the ram’s horn or the trumpet. They had to sound the alarm on the holy mountain in Jerusalem. Everyone in the land should tremble, because the day of Yahweh was coming. In fact, the day was near.
