Isaiah 34

God’s Wrath against Nations

1Draw near a  O nations, to hear; and listen, O peoples!
b  Let the earth and
Lit its fullness
all it contains hear, and the world and all that springs from it.
2For 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.
3So their slain will be h  thrown out,
And their corpses
Lit their stench will go up
will give off their j  stench,
And the mountains will
Lit dissolve
be drenched with their l  blood.
4And m  all the host of heaven will
Lit rot
wear 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.
5For 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.
6The sword of the  Lord is filled with blood,
It is
Lit made fat
sated 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 down
fall with them
And x  young bulls with strong ones;
Thus their land will be y  soaked with blood,
And their dust
Lit made fat
become greasy with fat.
8For the  Lord has a day of aa  vengeance,
A year of recompense for the
Or controversy
cause of Zion.
9
I.e. Edom’s
Its streams will be turned into pitch,
And its loose earth into ad  brimstone,
And its land will become burning pitch.
10It 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.
11But
Or owl or jackdaw
,
aj  pelican and hedgehog will possess it,
And
Or great horned owl
owl and raven will dwell in it;
And He will stretch over it the al  line of
Or formlessness
desolation
And the
Lit stones of void
plumb line of emptiness.
12Its noblesthere is ao  no one there
Whom they may proclaim king
And all its princes will be ap  nothing.
13Thorns 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.
14The desert as  creatures will meet with the
Or howling creatures
wolves,
The
Or demon
,
av  hairy goat also will cry to its kind;
Yes, the
Heb Lilith
night monster will settle there
And will find herself a resting place.
15The tree snake will make its nest and lay eggs there,
And it will hatch and gather them under its
Lit shade
protection.
Yes ay  the
Or kites
hawks will be gathered there,
Every one with its kind.

16Seek from the ba  book of the  Lord, and read: Not one of these will be missing;
None will lack its mate.
For
So DSS; M.T. My
,
bc  His mouth has commanded,
And His Spirit has gathered them.
17He 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.
