They will be entangled among thorns1 and drunk2 from their wine; they will be consumed like dry stubble.a311
From you, [O Nineveh, ] has one come forth who plots evil against the LORD and counsels wickedness.
This is what the LORD says: "Although they have allies and are numerous, they will be cut off4 and pass away. Although I have afflicted you, [O Judah, ] I will afflict you no more.513
Now I will break their yoke6 from your neck and tear your shackles away."714
The LORD has given a command concerning you, [Nineveh]: "You will have no descendants to bear your name.8 I will destroy the carved images9 and cast idols that are in the temple of your gods. I will prepare your grave,10 for you are vile."
Look, there on the mountains, the feet of one who brings good news,11 who proclaims peace!12 Celebrate your festivals,13 O Judah, and fulfill your vows. No more will the wicked invade you;14 they will be completely destroyed.
