New Living Translation
Even 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.
King James Bible
And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.
Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible
The wild oxen will come down with them, and the young bulls with the mighty bulls; and their land will be drunken with blood, and their dust made greasy with fat.
Young's Literal Translation

Isaiah 34:7 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
34:7 The unicorns - It is confessed, this was a beast of great strength and fierceness; and it is used in this place to signify their princes and potentates, who shall be humbled and cast down. Them - With the lambs, and goats, and rams. Fatness - With the fat of the slain sacrifices, mingled with it.
God brought them out of Egypt; for them he is as strong as a wild ox.
"Will the wild ox consent to being tamed? Will it spend the night in your stall?
Snatch me from the lion's jaws and from the horns of these wild oxen.
Rebuke these enemy nations--these wild animals lurking in the reeds, this herd of bulls among the weaker calves. Make them bring bars of silver in humble tribute. Scatter the nations that delight in war.
I crushed the nations in my anger and made them stagger and fall to the ground, spilling their blood upon the earth."
Weep and moan, you evil shepherds! Roll in the dust, you leaders of the flock! The time of your slaughter has arrived; you will fall and shatter like a fragile vase.
Egypt's mercenaries have become like fattened calves. They, too, will turn and run, for it is a day of great disaster for Egypt, a time of great punishment.
