God’s Wrath against Nations

Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:1 - Come near, you nations, to hear; and listen, you peoples!
Let the earth and [fn]all it contains hear, and the world and all that springs from it.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:2 - For the LORD’S anger is against all the nations,
And His wrath against all their armies.
He has [fn]utterly destroyed them,
He has turned them over to slaughter.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:3 - So their slain will be thrown out,
And their corpses [fn]will give off their stench,
And the mountains will [fn]be drenched with their blood.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:4 - And all the heavenly [fn]lights will [fn]wear away,
And the sky will be rolled up like a scroll;
All its [fn]lights will also wither away
As a leaf withers from the vine,
Or as one withers from the fig tree.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:5 - For My sword has drunk its fill in heaven;
Behold it shall descend for judgment upon Edom,
And upon the people whom I have designated for destruction.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:6 - The sword of the LORD is filled with blood,
It drips with fat, with the blood of lambs and goats,
With the fat of the kidneys of rams.
For the LORD has a sacrifice in Bozrah,
And a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:7 - Wild oxen will also [fn]fall with them
And young bulls with strong ones;
So their land will be soaked with blood,
And their dust [fn]become greasy with fat.

A year of retribution for the [fn]cause of Zion.

And its loose earth into brimstone,
And its land will become burning pitch.

Its smoke will go up forever.
From generation to generation it will be desolate;
None will pass through it forever and ever.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:11 - But [fn]pelican and hedgehog will possess it,
And [fn]owl and raven will dwell in it;
And He will stretch over it the line of [fn]desolation
And the [fn]plumb line of emptiness.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:12 - Its nobles—there is no one there
Whom they may proclaim king
And all its officials will be nothing.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:13 - Thorns will come up in its fortified towers,
Weeds and thistles in its fortified cities;
It will also be a haunt of jackals
And a habitat of ostriches.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:14 - The desert creatures will meet with the [fn]wolves,
The [fn]goat also will cry to its kind.
Yes, the [fn]night-bird will settle there
And will find herself a resting place.

And it will hatch and gather them under its [fn]protection.
Yes, the [fn]hawks will be gathered there,
Every one with its kind.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:16 - Seek from the book of the LORD, and read:
Not one of these will be missing;
None will lack its mate.
For [fn]His mouth has commanded,
And His Spirit has gathered them.
Unchecked Copy BoxIsa 34:17 - He has cast the lot for them,
And His hand has divided it to them by the measuring line.
They shall possess it forever;
From generation to generation they will dwell in it.
