In their van the fire devours, in their rear a flame consumes. Arrows fly, still they press forward, without breaking ranks. They hurl themselves at the city, they leap onto its walls, climb the housetops and make their way through windows like marauders. As they come on, the earth quakes, the skies tremble, sun and moon grow dark, and the stars lose their brilliance." (Joel 2:1-11).

So a curse consumes the earth and its inhabitants suffer the penalty, that is why the inhabitants of the earth are burnt up and few men are left." (Is.24:1-6).

The waters of the sea will rage against them...so lawlessness will bring the whole earth to ruin and evil-doing bring the thrones of the mighty down." (Ws.5:18-24).
