The Nations Judged

1 "In those days and at that time, when I restore the fortunes1 of Judah2 and Jerusalem, 2 I will gather3 all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.a4 There I will enter into judgment5 against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered6 my people among the nations and divided up my land. 3 They cast lots7 for my people and traded boys for prostitutes; they sold girls for wine8 that they might drink. 4 "Now what have you against me, O Tyre and Sidon9 and all you regions of Philistia?10 Are you repaying me for something I have done? If you are paying me back, I will swiftly and speedily return on your own heads what you have done.11 5 For you took my silver and my gold and carried off my finest treasures to your temples.12 6 You sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks,13 that you might send them far from their homeland. 7 "See, I am going to rouse them out of the places to which you sold them,14 and I will return15 on your own heads what you have done. 8 I will sell your sons16 and daughters to the people of Judah,17 and they will sell them to the Sabeans,18 a nation far away." The LORD has spoken.19
