17 So I took the cup from the Lord's hand and went to those nations and made them drink from it.
18 I served this wine to the people of Jerusalem and the towns of Judah, and the kings and officers of Judah, so they would become a ruin. Then people would be shocked and would insult them and speak evil of them. And so it has been to this day.
19 I also made these people drink of the Lord's anger: the king of Egypt, his servants, his officers, all his people,
20 and all the foreigners there; all the kings of the land of Uz; all the kings of the Philistines (the kings of the cities of Ashkelon, Gaza, Ekron, and the people left at Ashdod);
21 the people of Edom, Moab, and Ammon;
22 all the kings of Tyre and Sidon; all the kings of the coastal countries to the west;
23 the people of Dedan and Tema and Buz; all who cut their hair short;
24 all the kings of Arabia; and the kings of the people who live in the desert;
25 all the kings of Zimri, Elam, and Media;
26 and all the kings of the north, near and far, one after the other. I made all the kingdoms on earth drink from the cup of the Lord's anger, but the king of Babylon will drink from this cup after all the others.
27 "Then say to them, 'This is what the Lord All-Powerful, the God of Israel, says: Drink this cup of my anger. Get drunk from it and vomit. Fall down and don't get up because of the war I am sending among you!'
28 "If they refuse to take the cup from your hand and drink, say to them, 'The Lord All-Powerful says this: You must drink from this cup.
