34 Come near, nations, to hear;
and peoples, listen attentively!
Let the earth hear, and that which fills it;
the world and all its offspring.
and his wrath is against all their host;
he has put them under a ban,
he has given them up for slaughter.
as fora their corpses, their stench shall go up.
And the mountains shall melt withb their blood,
And the skies shall roll up like a scroll,
and all their host shall wither
like the withering of a leaf from a vine,
orc like the withering from a fig tree.
look! It will descend upon Edom,
and upon the people of my ban, for judgment.
6 ⌊Yahweh has a sword⌋;d
it is full of blood.
It is covered withe fat,
withf the blood of lambs and goats,
withg the fat of the kidneys of rams,
for ⌊Yahweh has a sacrifice⌋h in Bozrah
and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
and steers with strong bulls.
And their land shall be drenched withi blood,
and their soil shall be fattened withj fat.
8 For ⌊Yahweh has a day of vengeance⌋,k
a year of retribution for the strife of Zion.
and its land shall become like burning pitch.
its smoke shall go up forever.
From generation to generation it shall be in ruins;
forever and ever there will be no one who passes through her.
11 Butl the large bird and the hedgehog shall take possession of it,
and the owl and the raven shall live in it.
And he shall stretch the measuring line of confusion out over it,
and the plumb line of emptiness.
and all its princes shall be nothing.
and it shall be the settlement of jackals,
green grass for the daughters of an ostrich.
and a goat-demon shall call to his neighbor;
surely there Lilitho shall repose,
and she shall find a resting place for herself.
and hatch and care for her chicks in her shadow;
surely there the birds of prey shall be gathered,
each one with her mate.
16 Seek from the book of Yahweh and ⌊read⌋;p
none of these shall be missing;
none shall miss her mate.
and his spirit ⌊is the one that⌋s has gathered them.
17 And he ⌊is the one that⌋t has cast the lot for them,
and his hand has apportioned it to them with the measuring line;
they shall take possession of it forever,
they shall live in it ⌊from generation to generation⌋.u
