Mountains quake because of Him
And the hills dissolve;
Indeed the earth is upheaved by His presence,
The world and all the inhabitants in it.
The mountains will melt under Him
And the valleys will be split,
Like wax before the fire,
Like water poured down a steep place.
“Then the earth shook and quaked,
The foundations of heaven were trembling
And were shaken, because He was angry.
I looked on the mountains, and behold, they were quaking,
And all the hills moved to and fro.
Now Mount Sinai was all in smoke because the Lord descended upon it in fire; and its smoke ascended like the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked violently.
“The mountains quaked at the presence of the Lord,
This Sinai, at the presence of the Lord, the God of Israel.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
Yes, the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered;
He raised His voice, the earth melted.
The earth quaked;
The heavens also dropped rain at the presence of God;
Sinai itself quaked at the presence of God, the God of Israel.
His lightnings lit up the world;
The earth saw and trembled.
Let the sea roar and all it contains,
The world and those who dwell in it.
The mountains skipped like rams,
The hills, like lambs.
O mountains, that you skip like rams?
O hills, like lambs?
For the Lord of hosts will have a day of reckoning
Against everyone who is proud and lofty
And against everyone who is lifted up,
That he may be abased.
Oh, that You would rend the heavens and come down,
That the mountains might quake at Your presence—
The mountains saw You and quaked;
The downpour of waters swept by.
The deep uttered forth its voice,
It lifted high its hands.
And behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth shook and the rocks were split.
And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it.
But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
Then I saw a great white throne and Him who sat upon it, from whose presence earth and heaven fled away, and no place was found for them.
