Previous chapter Index Next chapter
1 Proceed, peoples, listen and listen, tribes! may the earth hear and everything that fills it, the universe and everything born in it!
2 For the wrath of the Lord is upon all nations, and His fury is upon all their host. He betrayed them to the spell, gave them to the slaughter.
3 And their slain will be scattered, and the stench will rise from their corpses, and the mountains will be wet with their blood.
4 And all heavenly host shall decay; and the heavens will curl up like a book scroll; and all their host will fall, as a leaf falls from a vine, and like a withered leaf from a fig tree.
5 For My sword was drunk in heaven: behold, for the judgment he came down to Edom and to the people whom I had spoken.
6 The sword of the Lord is filled with blood, becomes fattened from fat, from the blood of lambs and goats, from fat from the buds of rams: for the sacrifice is in the Lord in Bozrah and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
7 And the buffaloes will fall with them and the calves along with the oxen, and the earth will be drunk with their blood, and their dust will become stiff from fat.
eight For the day of vengeance is with the Lord, the year of retribution for Zion.

nine And his rivers shall turn into tar, and his dust into sulfur, and his land shall be hot tar:
ten It will not go out day or night; her smoke will rise forever; will remain desolate from generation to generation; forever and ever no one will pass through it;
eleven and the pelican and hedgehog will take possession of it; and an eagle owl and a raven dwell in it and the vervah of ruin and the plumb line of destruction will be stretched along it.
12 No one will remain there from her nobles who could be called to the kingdom, and all her princes will be nothing.
13 And its palaces will be overgrown with prickly plants, nettles and burdocks - its strongholds; and it will be the dwelling of jackals, the shelter of ostriches.
fourteen And the beasts of the desert will meet with wild cats, and the goblin will echo one with the other; there the night ghost will rest and find peace.
fifteen A flying serpent nests there, will lay eggs and bring out children and collect them under its shadow; there the kites will gather one to another.
16 Search in the book of the Lord and read; not one of these will come, and one will not be replaced by another. For His mouth itself commanded, and His spirit itself will gather them.
17 And He Himself cast lots for them, and His hand divided them with their measure; forever they will possess it, from generation to generation will live on it.
