31 A noise shall come even to wthe ends of the earth;
For ythe Lord hath a controversy with the nations,
zHe will plead with all flesh;
He will give them that are wicked to the sword, saith the Lord.
Behold, evil shall go forth from nation to nation,
33 And cthe slain of the Lord shall be at that day
From one end of the earth even unto the other end of the earth:
eThey shall be dung upon the ground.
And wallow yourselves hin the ashes, ye principal of the flock:
For †the days of your slaughter and of your dispersions are accomplished;
And ye shall fall like †a pleasant vessel.
Nor the principal of the flock to escape.
36 A voice of the cry of gthe shepherds,
And an howling of the principal of the flock, shall be heard:
For the Lord hath spoiled their pasture.
lBecause of the fierce anger of the Lord.
For their land is †desolate
Because of the fierceness of othe oppressor,
And lbecause of his fierce anger.
