The day of reckoning (Ezek 39:8-39:8)

“‘It has come!

It has happened.’

Says Yahweh God!

‘This is the day

Of which

I have spoken.’”

This day of reckoning represents a prime example of apocalyptic literature. The day that they were expecting has come. This is the day that Yahweh had been talking about. The future is now.
