all the kings of Tyre1 and Sidon;2 the kings of the coastlands3 across the sea;
Dedan,4 Tema,5 Buz6 and all who are in distant placesa;724
all the kings of Arabia8 and all the kings of the foreign people9 who live in the desert;
all the kings of Zimri,10 Elam11 and Media;1226
and all the kings of the north,13 near and far, one after the other--all the kingdoms14 on the face of the earth. And after all of them, the king of Sheshachb15 will drink it too.
"Then tell them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Drink, get drunk16 and vomit, and fall to rise no more because of the sword17 I will send among you.'
But if they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink18, tell them, 'This is what the LORD Almighty says: You must drink it!
See, I am beginning to bring disaster19 on the city that bears my Name,20 and will you indeed go unpunished?21 You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword22 upon all23 who live on the earth,24 declares the LORD Almighty.'
"Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them: " 'The LORD will roar25 from on high; he will thunder26 from his holy dwelling27 and roar mightily against his land. He will shout like those who tread28 the grapes, shout against all who live on the earth.
The tumult29 will resound to the ends of the earth, for the LORD will bring charges30 against the nations; he will bring judgment31 on all32 mankind and put the wicked to the sword,33' " declares the LORD.
This is what the LORD Almighty says: "Look! Disaster34 is spreading from nation to nation;35 a mighty storm36 is rising from the ends of the earth."37
