CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
That day is a day of wrath - See Isaiah 22:5 (note); Jeremiah 30:7 (note); Joel 2:2 (note), Joel 2:11 (note); Amos 5:18 (note); Zephaniah 1:18 (note), and the notes there.

Then they will look toward the earth and see only distress and darkness and fearful gloom, and they will be thrust into utter darkness.
The Lord, the LORD Almighty, has a day of tumult and trampling and terror in the Valley of Vision, a day of battering down walls and of crying out to the mountains.
a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and blackness. Like dawn spreading across the mountains a large and mighty army comes, such as never was in ancient times nor ever will be in ages to come.
The LORD thunders at the head of his army; his forces are beyond number, and mighty is the army that obeys his command. The day of the LORD is great; it is dreadful. Who can endure it?
The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD.
