For the Lord’s (A)indignation is against all the nations,
And His wrath against all their armies;
He has [a](B)utterly destroyed them,
He has given them over to (C)slaughter.
So their slain will be (D)thrown out,
And their corpses [b]will give off their (E)stench,
And the mountains will [c]be drenched with their (F)blood.
And (G)all the host of heaven will [d]wear away,
And the (H)sky will be rolled up like a scroll;
All their hosts will also wither away
As a leaf withers from the vine,
Or as one withers from the fig tree.
For (I)My sword is satiated in heaven,
Behold it shall descend for judgment upon (J)Edom
And upon the people whom I have (K)devoted to destruction.
The sword of the Lord is filled with blood,
It is [e]sated with fat, with the blood of lambs and goats,
With the fat of the kidneys of rams.
For the Lord has a sacrifice in (L)Bozrah
And a great slaughter in the land of (M)Edom.
(N)Wild oxen will also [f]fall with them
And (O)young bulls with strong ones;
Thus their land will be (P)soaked with blood,
And their dust [g]become greasy with fat.
For the Lord has a day of (Q)vengeance,
A year of recompense for the [h]cause of Zion.
