I will gather1 all nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.2 There I will enter into judgment3 against them concerning my inheritance, my people Israel, for they scattered4 my people among the nations and divided up my land.
They cast lots5 for my people and traded boys for prostitutes; they sold girls for wine6 that they might drink.
"Now what have you against me, O Tyre and Sidon7 and all you regions of Philistia?8 Are you repaying me for something I have done? If you are paying me back, I will swiftly and speedily return on your own heads what you have done.9
For you took my silver and my gold and carried off my finest treasures to your temples.10
You sold the people of Judah and Jerusalem to the Greeks,11 that you might send them far from their homeland.
"See, I am going to rouse them out of the places to which you sold them,12 and I will return13 on your own heads what you have done.
