"As for you, you are to prophesy all these things to them, and say to them: The Lord roars from on high; He raises His voice from His holy dwelling.a He roars loudly over His grazing land; He calls out with a shout, like those who tread [grapes], against all the inhabitants of the earth.
The tumult reaches to the ends of the earth because the Lord brings a case againstb the nations. He enters into judgment with all flesh. As for the wicked, He hands them over to the sword- [This is] the Lord's declaration.
"This is what the Lord of Hosts says: Pay attention! Disaster goes forth from nation to nation. A great storm is stirred up from the ends of the earth."c33
Those slain by the Lord on that day will be [spread] from one end of the earth to the other. They will not be mourned, gathered, or buried. They will be like manure on the surface of the ground.
Wail, you shepherds, and cry out. Roll [in the dust],deyou leaders of the flock. Because the days of your slaughter have come, you will fall and become shattered like a precious vase.
Flight will be impossible for the shepherds, and escape, for the leaders of the flock.
[Hear] the sound of the shepherds' cry, the wail of the leaders of the flock, for the Lord is destroying their pasture.
Peaceful grazing land will become lifeless because of the Lord's burning anger.f38
He has left His den like a lion, for their land has become a desolation because of the swordg of the oppressor, because of His burning anger.
