God’s Wrath against Nations1 Draw near a O nations, to hear; and listen, O peoples!
b Let the earth and ▼
▼ Lit its fullnessall it contains hear, and the world and all that springs from it.
2 For the Lord’s d indignation is against all the nations,
And His wrath against all their armies;
He has ▼
▼ Lit put under the ban, f utterly destroyed them,
He has given them over to g slaughter.
3 So their slain will be h thrown out,
And their corpses ▼
▼ Lit their stench will go upwill give off their j stench,
And the mountains will ▼
▼ Lit dissolvebe drenched with their l blood.
4 And m all the host of heaven will ▼
▼ Lit rotwear away,
And the o sky will be rolled up like a scroll;
All their hosts will also wither away
As a leaf withers from the vine,
Or as one withers from the fig tree.
5 For p My sword is satiated in heaven,
Behold it shall descend for judgment upon q Edom
And upon the people whom I have r devoted to destruction.
6 The sword of the Lord is filled with blood,
It is ▼
▼ Lit made fatsated with fat, with the blood of lambs and goats,
With the fat of the kidneys of rams.
For the Lord has a sacrifice in t Bozrah
And a great slaughter in the land of u Edom.
7 v Wild oxen will also ▼
▼ Lit go downfall with them
And x young bulls with strong ones;
Thus their land will be y soaked with blood,
And their dust ▼
▼ Lit made fatbecome greasy with fat.
8 For the Lord has a day of aa vengeance,
A year of recompense for the ▼
▼ Or controversycause of Zion.
▼ I.e. Edom’sIts streams will be turned into pitch,
And its loose earth into ad brimstone,
And its land will become burning pitch.
10 It will ae not be quenched night or day;
Its af smoke will go up forever.
From ag generation to generation it will be desolate;
ah None will pass through it forever and ever.
11 But ▼
▼ Or owl or jackdaw, aj pelican and hedgehog will possess it,
▼ Or great horned owlowl and raven will dwell in it;
And He will stretch over it the al line of ▼
▼ Or formlessnessdesolation
And the ▼
▼ Lit stones of voidplumb line of emptiness.
12 Its nobles— there is ao no one there
Whom they may proclaim king—
And all its princes will be ap nothing.
13 Thorns will come up in its aq fortified towers,
Nettles and thistles in its fortified cities;
It will also be a haunt of ar jackals
And an abode of ostriches.
14 The desert as creatures will meet with the ▼
▼ Or howling creatureswolves,
▼ Or demon, av hairy goat also will cry to its kind;
Yes, the ▼
▼ Heb Lilithnight monster will settle there
And will find herself a resting place.
15 The tree snake will make its nest and lay eggs there,
And it will hatch and gather them under its ▼
▼ Lit shadeprotection.
Yes ay the ▼
▼ Or kiteshawks will be gathered there,
Every one with its kind.
16 Seek from the ba book of the Lord, and read: Not one of these will be missing;
None will lack its mate.
▼ So DSS; M.T. My, bc His mouth has commanded,
And His Spirit has gathered them.
17 He has cast the bd lot for them,
And His hand has divided it to them by be line.
They shall possess it forever;
From bf generation to generation they will dwell in it.
