Description: The texts thematising the Day of JHWH are Am 5,18-20; Zp 1,2-18; Ob; Jl 2,1-11; 4,1-17; Zc 14; Ml 3,13-21.22-24. They are interpreted within the context of their relevant books, their connections with preliminary editorial phases of the Book of the Twelve are investigated, and their connections with each other are examined on both a diachronic and a synchronic level. The results of this study feed into the current debate on the origins and unity of the Book of the Twelve and the history of the concept of the Day of JHWH.
