And hearken, ye people:
Let the earth hear, and all that is therein;
The world, and all things that come forth of it.
And his fury upon all their armies:
He hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
And their stink shall come up out of their carcases,
And the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
And the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll:
And all their host shall fall down,
As the leaf falleth off from the vine,
And as a falling fig from the fig tree.
Behold, it shall come down upon Idumea,
And upon the people of my curse, to judgment.
It is made fat with fatness,
And with the blood of lambs and goats,
With the fat of the kidneys of rams:
For the Lord hath a sacrifice in Bozrah,
And a great slaughter in the land of Idumea.
And the bullocks with the bulls;
And their land shall be soaked with blood,
And their dust made fat with fatness.
And the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
And the dust thereof into brimstone,
And the land thereof shall become burning pitch.
The smoke thereof shall go up for ever:
From generation to generation it shall lie waste;
None shall pass through it for ever and ever.
The owl also and the raven shall dwell in it:
And he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.
And all her princes shall be nothing.
Nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof:
And it shall be an habitation of dragons,
And a court for owls.
And the satyr shall cry to his fellow;
The screech owl also shall rest there,
And find for herself a place of rest.
And hatch, and gather under her shadow:
There shall the vultures also be gathered,
Every one with her mate.
No one of these shall fail,
None shall want her mate:
For my mouth it hath commanded,
And his spirit it hath gathered them.
And his hand hath divided it unto them by line:
They shall possess it for ever,
From generation to generation shall they dwell therein.
And the desert shall rejoice, and blossom as the rose.
Even with joy and singing:
The glory of Lebanon shall be given unto it,
The excellency of Carmel and Sharon,
They shall see the glory of the Lord,
And the excellency of our God.
And confirm the feeble knees.
Be strong, fear not:
Behold, your God will come with vengeance,
Even God with a recompence;
He will come and save you.
And the ears of the deaf shall be unstopped.
And the tongue of the dumb sing:
For in the wilderness shall waters break out,
And streams in the desert.
And the thirsty land springs of water:
In the habitation of dragons, where each lay,
Shall be grass with reeds and rushes.
And it shall be called The way of holiness;
The unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those:
The wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.
Nor any ravenous beast shall go up thereon,
It shall not be found there;
But the redeemed shall walk there:
And come to Zion with songs
And everlasting joy upon their heads:
They shall obtain joy and gladness,
And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
