Wild oxen will fall along with them,
bull calves and powerful bulls.
Their land will be soaked with blood,
and their dust will be saturated with fat.
It will be a day of vengeance for the Lord,
a year of retribution for Zion’s sake.[a]
Edom’s streams will be turned into pitch,
its dust into sulfur,
and its land will become burning pitch,
