Judgment on the Whole Earth1 Behold, a the Lord will empty the earth ▼
▼Or land; also throughout this chapterand make it desolate,
and he will twist its surface and scatter its inhabitants.
2 c And it shall be, as with the people, so with the priest;
as with the slave, so with his master;
as with the maid, so with her mistress;
d as with the buyer, so with the seller;
as with the lender, so with the borrower;
e as with the creditor, so with the debtor.
3 f The earth shall be utterly empty and utterly plundered;
g for the Lord has spoken this word.
4 h The earth mourns and withers;
the world languishes and withers;
the highest people of the earth languish.
5The earth lies i defiled
under its inhabitants;
for j they have transgressed the laws,
violated the statutes,
broken the everlasting covenant.
Isaiah 34:4-104 k All the host of heaven shall rot away,
and the skies roll up like a scroll.
All their host shall fall,
as leaves fall from the vine,
like leaves falling from the fig tree.
5 For my sword has drunk its fill in the heavens;
behold, it descends for judgment upon l Edom,
upon the people m I have devoted to destruction.
6The Lord has a sword; it is sated with blood;
it is gorged with fat,
with the blood of lambs and goats,
with the fat of the kidneys of rams.
n For the Lord has a sacrifice in Bozrah,
a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
7 o Wild oxen shall p fall with them,
and q young steers with r the mighty bulls.
Their land shall drink its fill of blood,
and their soil shall be gorged with fat.
8 s For the Lord has a day of vengeance,
a year of recompense for the cause of Zion.
9 t And the streams of Edom ▼
▼Hebrew her streamsshall be turned into pitch,
and her soil into sulfur;
her land shall become burning pitch.
10Night and day v it shall not be quenched;
w its smoke shall go up forever.
x From generation to generation it shall lie waste;
none shall pass through it forever and ever.
Jeremiah 4:23-2823 I looked on the earth, and behold, it was y without form and void;
z and to the heavens, and they had no light.
24I looked on aa the mountains, and behold, they were quaking,
and all the hills moved to and fro.
25 ab I looked, and behold, there was no man,
and all the birds of the air had fled.
26I looked, and behold, the ac fruitful land was a desert,
and all its cities were laid in ruins
before the Lord, before ad his fierce anger.
27For thus says the Lord, “The whole land shall be a desolation; ae yet I will not make a full end. 28 af “For this the earth shall mourn,
ag and the heavens above be dark;
for I have spoken; I have purposed;
ah I have not relented, nor will I turn back.”

aj the hills melt;
the earth heaves before him,
ak the world and all who dwell in it.

then the am eternal mountains an were scattered;
the everlasting hills sank low.
