30: τοτε αρξονται λεγειν τοις ορεσιν πεσετε εφ ημας και τοις βουνοις καλυψατε ημας— edit Textus Receptus
30: Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.— edit KJV text
30: Then shall they begin to say to the mountains: Fall upon us. And to the hills: Cover us.— edit Douay text



To the mountains, Fall on us, &c. This is an image of great calamities and judgments. So great will be the calamities that they will seek for shelter from the storm, and will call on the hills to protect them. The same figure is used respecting the wicked in the day of judgment in Rev 6:16, Rev 6:17. Compare also Isa 2:21

Rev 9:6
