The purpose of this study is to deal with some of the problems relevant to this broad, prophetic idea. This involves concerning ourselves, with the origin of the idea, and the form it took in the prophetic mind. As a result, we have devoted the first chapter to an investigation of certain problems connected with the origin and background of the idea. In the second and third chapters, our concern is with the concept as it unfolds itself in the prophetic books. In both these chapters, our intent is one of comparison and contrast, in seeking both common and diverse elements in those prophets who specifically use the concept. And finally, in the fourth chapter, a synthesis is to be sought, in which certain significant elements are singled out as bearing out the theological content of the Day of Yahweh. This involves particularly the eschatological aspects of the Day of Yahweh, and the description of Yahweh's personal activity.
