Only desolation remains in the city; its gate has collapsed in ruins.
For this is how it will be on earth among the nations: like a harvested olive tree, like a gleaning after a grape harvest.
They raise their voices, they sing out; they proclaim in the west the majesty of the Lord.
Therefore in the east honor the Lord! In the islands of the west [honor] the name of the Lord, the God of Israel.
From the ends of the earth we hear songs: The Splendor of the Righteous One. But I said, "I waste away! I waste away!a Woe is me." The treacherous act treacherously; the treacherous deal very treacherously.
Terror, pit, and snare [await] you who dwell on the earth.
Whoever flees at the sound of terror will fall into a pit, and whoever escapes from the pit will be caught in a snare. For the windows are opened from above, and the foundations of the earth are shaken.
The earth is completely devastated; the earth is split open; the earth is violently shaken.
The earth staggers like a drunkard and sways like a hut. Earth's rebellion weighs it down, and it falls, never to rise again.
On that day the Lord will punish the host of heaven above and kings of the earth below.
They will be gathered together like prisoners in a pit.b They will be confined to a dungeon; after many days they will be punished.
