14 The Lord has given you this command, Nineveh:
    “You will not have descendants to carry on your name.
I will destroy the idols and metal images
    that are in the temple of your gods.
I will make a grave for you,
    because you are wicked.”

15 Look, there on the hills,
    someone is bringing good news!
    He is announcing peace!
Celebrate your feasts, people of Judah,
    and give your promised sacrifices to God.
The wicked will not come to attack you again;
    they have been completely destroyed.
