wave the hand for them to enter
the gates of the nobles.

my proudly exulting ones.[fn]

of nations gathering together!
The LORD of hosts is mustering
a host for battle.

from the end of the heavens,
the LORD and the weapons of his indignation,

their faces will be aflame.

cruel, with wrath and fierce anger,
to make the land a desolation

will not give their light;
the sun will be dark at its rising,
and the moon will not shed its light.

and the wicked for their iniquity;

and mankind than the gold of Ophir.

and the earth will be shaken out of its place,
at the wrath of the LORD of hosts
in the day of his fierce anger.

before their eyes;
their houses will be plundered
and their wives ravished.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:17 - Behold, I am stirring up the Medes against them,
who have no regard for silver
and do not delight in gold.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:18 - Their bows will slaughter[fn] the young men;
they will have no mercy on the fruit of the womb;
their eyes will not pity children.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:19 - And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms,
the splendor and pomp of the Chaldeans,
will be like Sodom and Gomorrah
when God overthrew them.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:20 - It will never be inhabited
or lived in for all generations;
no Arab will pitch his tent there;
no shepherds will make their flocks lie down there.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:21 - But wild animals will lie down there,
and their houses will be full of howling creatures;
there ostriches[fn] will dwell,
and there wild goats will dance.

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 13:22 - Hyenas[fn] will cry in its towers,
and jackals in the pleasant palaces;
its time is close at hand
and its days will not be prolonged.

Or those who exult in my majesty
Or earth; also verse 9
The Hebrew words for destruction and almighty sound alike
Hebrew dash in pieces
Or owls
Or foxes
