Edom,1 Moab2 and Ammon;322
all the kings of Tyre4 and Sidon;5 the kings of the coastlands6 across the sea;
Dedan,7 Tema,8 Buz9 and all who are in distant placesa;1024
all the kings of Arabia11 and all the kings of the foreign people12 who live in the desert;
all the kings of Zimri,13 Elam14 and Media;1526
and all the kings of the north,16 near and far, one after the other--all the kingdoms17 on the face of the earth. And after all of them, the king of Sheshachb18 will drink it too.
"Then tell them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Drink, get drunk19 and vomit, and fall to rise no more because of the sword20 I will send among you.'
But if they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink21, tell them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty says: You must drink it!
See, I am beginning to bring disaster22 on the city that bears my Name,23 and will you indeed go unpunished?24 You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword25 upon all26 who live on the earth,27 declares the LORD Almighty.'
"Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them: " 'The LORD will roar28 from on high; he will thunder29 from his holy dwelling30 and roar mightily against his land. He will shout like those who tread31 the grapes, shout against all who live on the earth.
The tumult32 will resound to the ends of the earth, for the LORD will bring charges33 against the nations; he will bring judgment34 on all35 mankind and put the wicked to the sword,36' " declares the LORD.
