34 aCome near, ye nations, to hear;
And hearken, ye people:
The world, and all cthings that come forth of it.
And his fury upon all their armies:
He hath outterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.
And dtheir stink shall come up out of their carcases,
And the mountains shall be melted with their blood.
And gthe heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll:
And hall their host shall fall down,
As ithe leaf falleth off from the vine,
And fas a falling fig from the fig tree.
And upon the people of my ocurse, to judgment.
6 kThe sword of the Lord is filled with blood,
It is made fat with fatness,
And with the blood of lambs and goats,
With the fat of the kidneys of rams:
And a great slaughter in the land of nIdumea.
And their land shall be ||soaked with blood,
And their dust made fat with fatness.
8 For it is tthe day of the Lord’s vengeance,
And the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.
9 And uthe streams thereof shall be turned into pitch,
And the dust thereof into brimstone,
And the land thereof shall become burning pitch.
vThe smoke thereof shall go up for ever:
wFrom generation to generation it shall lie waste;
None shall pass through it for ever and ever.
zThe owl also and the raven shall dwell in it:
And all her princes shall be nothing.
13 And ethorns shall come up in her palaces,
And ithe satyr shall cry to his fellow;
And find for herself a place of rest.
15 xThere shall the great owl make her nest, and lay,
And hatch, and kgather under her shadow:
There shall lthe vultures also be gathered,
Every one with her mate.
16 mSeek ye out of the book of the Lord, and read:
No one of these shall nfail,
None shall owant 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:
pThey shall possess it for ever,
From generation to generation shall they dwell therein.
