So I took the cup from the LORD's hand, and made all the nations to whom the Lord sent me drink it:
Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, its kings and princes, to make them a desolation and a waste, a hissing and a curse, as at this day;
Pharaoh king of Egypt, his servants, his princes, all his people,
and all the foreign folk among them; all the kings of the land of Uz and all the kings of the land of the Philistines (Ash'kelon, Gaza, Ekron, and the remnant of Ashdod);
Edom, Moab, and the sons of Ammon;
all the kings of Tyre, all the kings of Sidon, and the kings of the coastland across the sea;
Dedan, Tema, Buz, and all who cut the corners of their hair;
all the kings of Arabia and all the kings of the mixed tribes that dwell in the desert;
all the kings of Zimri, all the kings of Elam, and all the kings of Media;
all the kings of the north, far and near, one after another, and all the kingdoms of the world which are on the face of the earth. And after them the king of Babylon shall drink.
"Then you shall say to them, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: Drink, be drunk and vomit, fall and rise no more, because of the sword which I am sending among you.'
"And if they refuse to accept the cup from your hand to drink, then you shall say to them, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts: You must drink!
