14 The Lord has given a command concerning you, Nineveh:
    “You will have no descendants to bear your name.(A)
I will destroy the images(B) and idols
    that are in the temple of your gods.
I will prepare your grave,(C)
    for you are vile.”

15 Look, there on the mountains,
    the feet of one who brings good news,(D)
    who proclaims peace!(E)
Celebrate your festivals,(F) Judah,
    and fulfill your vows.
No more will the wicked invade you;(G)
    they will be completely destroyed.[a]
