A Message for the Nations

34Come here and listen, O nations of the earth. Let the world and everything in it hear my words.H7126H1471H8085H7181H3816H776H8085H4393H8398H6631 2For the Lord is enraged against the nations. His fury is against all their armies. He will completely destroy them, dooming them to slaughter.H7110H3068H1471H2534H6635H2763H5414H2874 3Their dead will be left unburied, and the stench of rotting bodies will fill the land. The mountains will flow with their blood.H2491H7993H889H5927H6297H2022H4549H1818 4The heavens above will melt away 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.H6635H8064H4743H8064H1556H5612H6635H5034H5929H5034H1612H5034H8384 5And when my sword has finished its work in the heavens, it will fall upon Edom, the nation I have marked for destruction.H2719H7301H8064H3381H123H5971H2764H4941 6The sword of the Lord is drenched with blood 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.H2719H3068H4390H1818H1878H2459H1818H3733H6260H2459H3629H352H3068H2077H1224H1419H2874H776H123 7Even men as strong as wild oxen will die - the young men alongside the veterans. The land will be soaked with blood and the soil enriched with fat.H7214H3381H6499H47H776H7301H1818H6083H1878H2459 8For it is the day of the Lord’s revenge, the year when Edom will be paid back for all it did to Israel.H3117H3068H5359H8141H7966H7379H6726 9The streams of Edom will be filled with burning pitch, and the ground will be covered with fire.H5158H2015H2203H6083H1614H776H1197H2203 10This judgment on Edom will never end; the smoke of its burning will rise forever. The land will lie deserted from generation to generation. No one will live there anymore.H3518H3915H3119H6227H5927H5769H1755H1755H2717H5674H5331H5331 11It will be haunted by the desert owl and the screech owl, the great owl and the raven. For God will measure that land carefully; he will measure it for chaos and destruction.H6893H7090H3423H3244H6158H7931H5186H6957H8414H68H922 12It will be called the Land of Nothing, and all its nobles will soon be gone.H7121H2715H4410H8269H657 13Thorns will overrun its palaces; nettles and thistles will grow in its forts. The ruins will become a haunt for jackals and a home for owls.H5518H5927H759H7057H2336H4013H5116H8577H2681H1323H3284 14Desert animals will mingle there with hyenas, their howls filling the night. Wild goats will bleat at one another among the ruins, and night creatures will come there to rest.H6728H6298H338H8163H7121H7453H3917H7280H4672H4494 15There the owl will make her nest and lay her eggs. She will hatch her young and cover them with her wings. And the buzzards will come, each one with its mate.H7091H7077H4422H1234H1716H6738H1772H6908H802H7468 16Search the book of the Lord, and see what he will do. Not one of these birds and animals will be missing, and none will lack a mate, for the Lord has promised this. His Spirit will make it all come true.H1875H5612H3068H7121H259H2007H5737H802H6485H7468H6310H6680H7307H6908 17He has surveyed and divided the land and deeded it over to those creatures. They will possess it forever, from generation to generation.H5307H1486H3027H2505H6957H3423H5704H5769H1755H1755H7931
