Isaiah 13:13

Therefore I will shake the heavens, And the earth will move out of her place, In the wrath of the LORD of hosts And in the day of His fierce anger.

അങ്ങനെ ഞാൻ ആകാശത്തെ നടുങ്ങുമാറാക്കും; സൈന്യങ്ങളുടെ യഹോവയുടെ ക്രോധത്തിലും അവന്റെ ഉഗ്രകോപത്തിന്റെ നാളിലും ഭൂമി അതിന്റെ സ്ഥാനത്തു നിന്നു ഇളകിപ്പോകും;

Judges 16:20

And she said, "The Philistines are upon you, Samson!" So he awoke from his sleep, and said, "I will go out as before, at other times, and shake myself free!" But he did not know that the LORD had departed from him.

ഫെലിസ്ത്യർ ഇതാ വരുന്നു എന്നു പറഞ്ഞു. ഉടനെ അവൻ ഉറക്കമുണർന്നു; യഹോവ തന്നെ വിട്ടു എന്നറിയാതെ: ഞാൻ മുമ്പിലത്തെപ്പോലെ കുടഞ്ഞൊഴിഞ്ഞുകളയും എന്നു വിചാരിച്ചു.

Ezekiel 38:20

so that the fish of the sea, the birds of the heavens, the beasts of the field, all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all men who are on the face of the earth shall shake at My presence. The mountains shall be thrown down, the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.'

അങ്ങനെ സമുദ്രത്തിലെ മത്സ്യവും ആകാശത്തിലെ പറവയും കാട്ടിലെ മൃഗവും നിലത്തിഴയുന്ന ഇഴജാതിയൊക്കെയും ഭൂതലത്തിലെ സകലമനുഷ്യരും എന്റെ സന്നിധിയിൽ വിറെക്കും; മലകൾ ഇടിഞ്ഞുപോകും; കടുന്തൂക്കങ്ങൾ വീണുപോകും; എല്ലാ മതിലും നിലംപരിചാകും.
