So I took the cup from the LORD's hand, 1and made all the nations to whom the LORD sent me drink it:
2Jerusalem and the cities of Judah, its kings and officials, 3to make them a desolation and a waste, a hissing and a curse, as at this day;
4Pharaoh king of Egypt, his servants, his officials, all his people,
and 5all the mixed tribes among them; all the kings of 6the land of Uz and all the kings of 7the land of the Philistines (8Ashkelon, 9Gaza, Ekron, and the remnant of 10Ashdod);
11Edom, 12Moab, and the sons of 13Ammon;
all the kings of 14Tyre, all the kings of 15Sidon, and the kings of the coastland across 16the sea;
17Dedan, 18Tema, 19Buz, and all who cut 20the corners of their hair;
all the 21kings of Arabia and all the kings of 22the mixed tribes who dwell in the desert;
all the kings of Zimri, all the kings of 23Elam, and all the kings of 24Media;
all the kings of 25the north, far and near, one after another, and all the kingdoms of the world that are on the face of the earth. And after them the king of 26Babylon shall drink.
"Then you shall say to them, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: 27Drink, be drunk and vomit, fall and rise no more, because of 28the sword that I am sending among you.'
"And if they refuse to accept the cup from your hand to drink, then you shall say to them, 'Thus says the LORD of hosts: 29You must drink!
