On that day, those killed by ADONAI will be strewn from one end of the earth to the other; they will not be mourned or gathered or buried, but will lie on the ground like dung.
"Wail, shepherds! Cry! Wallow in the dust, you lords of the flock! For the days for your slaughter have come. I will break you in pieces, and like a prized vase you will fall."
The shepherds have no way to flee, the lords of the flock no way to escape.
Hear the cry of the shepherds, the wails of the lords of the flock! For ADONAI is destroying their pasture,
the peaceful grazing grounds are silenced, because of ADONAI's fierce anger.
Like a lion, he has abandoned his lair; for their land has become desolate because of the oppressor's fierce sword and because of ADONAI's fierce anger.
