Alas
Joel 2:2

16
Therefore thus says the LORD God of hosts, the Lord, "There is wailing in all the plazas, And in all the streets they say, 'Alas! Alas!' They also call the farmer to mourning And professional mourners to lamentation.
17
"And in all the vineyards [there is] wailing, Because I will pass through the midst of you," says the LORD.
18
Alas, you who are longing for the day of the LORD, For what purpose [will] the day of the LORD [be] to you? It [will be] darkness and not light;
the day of

The Lord laughs at him, For He sees his day is coming.
Isaiah 13:6-9
6
Wail, for the day of the LORD is near! It will come as destruction from the Almighty.
7
Therefore all hands will fall limp, And every man's heart will melt.
8
They will be terrified, Pains and anguish will take hold of [them]; They will writhe like a woman in labor, They will look at one another in astonishment, Their faces aflame.
9
Behold, the day of the LORD is coming, Cruel, with fury and burning anger, To make the land a desolation; And He will exterminate its sinners from it.
Ezekiel 7:2-12
2
"And you, son of man, thus says the Lord GOD to the land of Israel, 'An end! The end is coming on the four corners of the land.
3
'Now the end is upon you, and I will send My anger against you; I will judge you according to your ways and bring all your abominations upon you.
4
'For My eye will have no pity on you, nor will I spare [you], but I will bring your ways upon you, and your abominations will be among you; then you will know that I am the LORD!'
5
"Thus says the Lord GOD, 'A disaster, unique disaster, behold it is coming!
6
'An end is coming; the end has come! It has awakened against you; behold, it has come!
7
'Your doom has come to you, O inhabitant of the land. The time has come, the day is near-- tumult rather than joyful shouting on the mountains.
8
'Now I will shortly pour out My wrath on you and spend My anger against you; judge you according to your ways and bring on you all your abominations.
9
'My eye will show no pity nor will I spare. I will repay you according to your ways, while your abominations are in your midst; then you will know that I, the LORD, do the smiting.
10
'Behold, the day! Behold, it is coming! [Your] doom has gone forth; the rod has budded, arrogance has blossomed.
11
'Violence has grown into a rod of wickedness. None of them [shall remain], none of their people, none of their wealth, nor anything eminent among them.
12
'The time has come, the day has arrived. Let not the buyer rejoice nor the seller mourn; for wrath is against all their multitude.
Ezekiel 12:22-28
22
"Son of man, what is this proverb you [people] have concerning the land of Israel, saying, 'The days are long and every vision fails '?
23
"Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "I will make this proverb cease so that they will no longer use it as a proverb in Israel." But tell them, "The days draw near as well as the fulfillment of every vision.
24
"For there will no longer be any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel.
25
"For I the LORD will speak, and whatever word I speak will be performed. It will no longer be delayed, for in your days, O rebellious house, I will speak the word and perform it," declares the Lord GOD.'"
26
Furthermore, the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
27
"Son of man, behold, the house of Israel is saying, 'The vision that he sees is for many years [from now], and he prophesies of times far off.'
28
"Therefore say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "None of My words will be delayed any longer. Whatever word I speak will be performed,"'" declares the Lord GOD.
Zephaniah 1:14-18
14
Near is the great day of the LORD, Near and coming very quickly; Listen, the day of the LORD! In it the warrior cries out bitterly.
15
A day of wrath is that day, A day of trouble and distress, A day of destruction and desolation, A day of darkness and gloom, A day of clouds and thick darkness,
16
A day of trumpet and battle cry Against the fortified cities And the high corner towers.
17
I will bring distress on men So that they will walk like the blind, Because they have sinned against the LORD; And their blood will be poured out like dust And their flesh like dung.
18
Neither their silver nor their gold Will be able to deliver them On the day of the LORD'S wrath; And all the earth will be devoured In the fire of His jealousy, For He will make a complete end, Indeed a terrifying one, Of all the inhabitants of the earth.
Luke 19:41-44
41
When He approached [Jerusalem], He saw the city and wept over it,
42
saying, "If you had known in this day, even you, the things which make for peace! But now they have been hidden from your eyes.
43
"For the days will come upon you when your enemies will throw up a barricade against you, and surround you and hem you in on every side,
44
and they will level you to the ground and your children within you, and they will not leave in you one stone upon another, because you did not recognize the time of your visitation."

Do not complain, brethren, against one another, so that you yourselves may not be judged; behold, the Judge is standing right at the door.
