27 (A)Put all her young bulls to the sword;
Let them (B)go down to the slaughter!
Woe be upon them, for their (C)day has come,
The time of their punishment.

28 There is a (D)sound of fugitives and refugees from the land of Babylon,
To declare in Zion the (E)vengeance of the Lord our God,
Vengeance for His (F)temple.

29 “Summon [a]many against Babylon,
All those who [b]bend the bow:
Encamp against her on every side,
Let there be no escape[c].
Repay her according to her work;
(G)According to all that she has done, so do to her;
For she has become (H)arrogant against the Lord,
Against the Holy One of Israel.
