Judgment Against the Nations

1 Come near, you nations, and listen;1 pay attention, you peoples!2 Let the earth3 hear, and all that is in it, the world, and all that comes out of it!4 2 The LORD is angry with all nations; his wrath5 is upon all their armies. He will totally destroya6 them, he will give them over to slaughter.7 3 Their slain8 will be thrown out, their dead bodies9 will send up a stench;10 the mountains will be soaked with their blood.11 4 All the stars of the heavens will be dissolved12 and the sky rolled up13 like a scroll; all the starry host will fall14 like withered15 leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree. 5 My sword16 has drunk its fill in the heavens; see, it descends in judgment on Edom,17 the people I have totally destroyed.18 6 The sword19 of the LORD is bathed in blood, it is covered with fat-- the blood of lambs and goats, fat from the kidneys of rams. For the LORD has a sacrifice20 in Bozrah21 and a great slaughter22 in Edom. 7 And the wild oxen23 will fall with them, the bull calves and the great bulls.24 Their land will be drenched with blood,25 and the dust will be soaked with fat. 8 For the LORD has a day26 of vengeance,27 a year of retribution,28 to uphold Zion's cause.
