1 Come here and listen, O nations of the earth.
Let the world and everything in it hear my words.
His fury is against all their armies.
He will completely destroy* them,
dooming them to slaughter.
and the stench of rotting bodies will fill the land.
The mountains will flow with their blood.
and disappear like a rolled-up scroll.
The stars will fall from the sky
like withered leaves from a grapevine,
or shriveled figs from a fig tree.
it will fall upon Edom,
the nation I have marked for destruction.
and covered with fat—
with the blood of lambs and goats,
with the fat of rams prepared for sacrifice.
Yes, the Lord will offer a sacrifice in the city of Bozrah.
He will make a mighty slaughter in Edom.
the young men alongside the veterans.
The land will be soaked with blood
and the soil enriched with fat.
the year when Edom will be paid back for all it did to Israel.*
34:8 Hebrew to Zion.
