God's Judgments on the Nations

NIVESVNASBKJVHCSB
1Come near, you nations, and listen; pay attention, you peoples! Let the earth hear, and all that is in it, the world, and all that comes out of it!1Draw near, O nations, to hear, and give attention, O peoples! Let the earth hear, and all that fills it; the world, and all that comes from it.1Draw near, O nations, to hear; and listen, O peoples! Let the earth and all it contains hear, and the world and all that springs from it.1Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it.1You nations, come here and listen; you peoples, pay attention! Let the earth hear, and all that fills it, the world and all that comes from it.
2The LORD is angry with all nations; his wrath is on all their armies. He will totally destroy them, he will give them over to slaughter.2For the LORD is enraged against all the nations, and furious against all their host; he has devoted them to destruction, has given them over for slaughter.2For the LORD'S indignation is against all the nations, And His wrath against all their armies; He has utterly destroyed them, He has given them over to slaughter.2For the indignation of the LORD is upon all nations, and his fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter.2The LORD is angry with all the nations-- furious with all their armies. He will set them apart for destruction, giving them over to slaughter.
3Their slain will be thrown out, their dead bodies will stink; the mountains will be soaked with their blood.3Their slain shall be cast out, and the stench of their corpses shall rise; the mountains shall flow with their blood.3So their slain will be thrown out, And their corpses will give off their stench, And the mountains will be drenched with their blood.3Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.3Their slain will be thrown out, and the stench of their corpses will rise; the mountains will flow with their blood.
4All the stars in the sky will be dissolved and the heavens rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree.4All the host of heaven shall rot away, and the skies roll up like a scroll. All their host shall fall, as leaves fall from the vine, like leaves falling from the fig tree.4And all the host of heaven will wear away, And the sky will be rolled up like a scroll; All their hosts will also wither away As a leaf withers from the vine, Or as one withers from the fig tree.4And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree.4All the heavenly bodies will dissolve. The skies will roll up like a scroll, and their stars will all wither as leaves wither on the vine, and foliage on the fig tree.

5My sword has drunk its fill in the heavens; see, it descends in judgment on Edom, the people I have totally destroyed.5For my sword has drunk its fill in the heavens; behold, it descends for judgment upon Edom, upon the people I have devoted to destruction.5For My sword is satiated in heaven, Behold it shall descend for judgment upon Edom And upon the people whom I have devoted to destruction.5For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment.5When My sword has drunk its fill in the heavens, it will then come down on Edom and on the people I have set apart for destruction.

7And the wild oxen will fall with them, the bull calves and the great bulls. Their land will be drenched with blood, and the dust will be soaked with fat.7Wild oxen shall fall with them, and young steers with the mighty bulls.

8For the LORD has a day of vengeance, a year of retribution, to uphold Zion's cause.8For the LORD has a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the cause of Zion.8For the LORD has a day of vengeance, A year of recompense for the cause of Zion.8For it is the day of the LORD'S vengeance, and the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion.8For the LORD has a day of vengeance, a time of paying back Edom for its hostility against Zion.
9Edom's streams will be turned into pitch, her dust into burning sulfur; her land will become blazing pitch!9And the streams of Edom shall be turned into pitch, and her soil into sulfur; her land shall become burning pitch.9Its streams will be turned into pitch, And its loose earth into brimstone, And its land will become burning pitch.9And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.9Edom's streams will be turned into pitch, her soil into sulfur; her land will become burning pitch.

11The desert owl and screech owl will possess it; the great owl and the raven will nest there. God will stretch out over Edom the measuring line of chaos and the plumb line of desolation.11But the hawk and the porcupine shall possess it, the owl and the raven shall dwell in it. He shall stretch the line of confusion over it, and the plumb line of emptiness.11But pelican and hedgehog will possess it, And owl and raven will dwell in it; And He will stretch over it the line of desolation And the plumb line of emptiness.11But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.11The desert owl and the screech owl will possess it, and the great owl and the raven will dwell there.

Yes, the hawks will be gathered there, Every one with its kind.15There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate.15The sand partridge will make her nest there; she will lay and hatch her eggs and will gather her brood under her shadow. Indeed, the birds of prey will gather there, each with its mate.

For the mouth of the LORD has commanded, and his Spirit has gathered them.16Seek from the book of the LORD, and read: Not one of these will be missing; None will lack its mate.
