So I took the cup from the LORD's hand and made all the nations to whom he sent1 me drink it:
Jerusalem2 and the towns of Judah, its kings and officials, to make them a ruin3 and an object of horror and scorn,4 a cursea5--as they are today;619
Pharaoh king7 of Egypt,8 his attendants, his officials and all his people,
and all the foreign people there; all the kings of Uz;9 all the kings of the Philistines10 (those of Ashkelon,11 Gaza,12 Ekron, and the people left at Ashdod);
Edom,13 Moab14 and Ammon;1522
all the kings of Tyre16 and Sidon;17 the kings of the coastlands18 across the sea;
Dedan,19 Tema,20 Buz21 and all who are in distant placesb;2224
all the kings of Arabia23 and all the kings of the foreign people24 who live in the wilderness;
all the kings of Zimri,25 Elam26 and Media;2726
and all the kings of the north,28 near and far, one after the other--all the kingdoms29 on the face of the earth. And after all of them, the king of Sheshakc30 will drink it too.
"Then tell them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Drink, get drunk31 and vomit, and fall to rise no more because of the sword32 I will send among you.'
But if they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink33, tell them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty says: You must drink it!
