6 Howl [yalal] ye; for the day [yowm] of the LORD [Yahovah] is at
hand; [qarowb] it shall come [bow'] as a destruction [shod]
from the Almighty. [Shadday]KJV-Interlinear
6 Wail, for
the day of the Lord is near! It will come as destruction from the Almighty. NASB
Howl is not attached to any subject, but implied to those who will benefit from the destruction that is about to fall on Babylon.
The citizens of Babylon will not howl for they will not believe that their time is up.
The citizens of Israel will not howl, for if they are in hiding they will not want to reveal their position, nor will they even know the day of judgment.
Thus the howling comes from the armies of heaven that will accompany Christ when He returns at the second advent.
Howl, 'yalal,' here means to wail, to yell, to howl with a boisterous animated energetic lively rowdy attitude.
Those who are to be destroyed will not be animated in a joyful howling. Those who are to be rescued will not howl until after they have been rescued.
But this prophecy is one of impending destruction against Babylon, or the power to the north. And it is the invading armies that will be charging in from heaven and howling with the war cry of attacking soldiers.
And when you consider the vast numbers of Christ's armies, the angels, all believers from the Church Age who will have already received their resurrection bodies at the Rapture which would have been seven years prior to the second advent, then the numbers of people and angels who will be yelling as they charge, will be in the billions or even trillions of beings.
That will make for a lot of noise, that to anyone on earth will or should be, terrified at the approaching armies from heaven.
