“‘You will not go unpunished, for I am calling for a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth,’ declares Jehovah of armies.
30 “And you are to prophesy all these words to them and say to them,
‘From on high Jehovah will roar,
And from his holy dwelling he will make his voice heard.
He will roar loudly against his abiding place.
Shouting like those treading the winepress,
He will sing triumphantly against all the inhabitants of the earth.’
31 ‘A noise will resound to the ends of the earth,
For Jehovah has a controversy with the nations.
And he will put the wicked to the sword,’ declares Jehovah.
32 This is what Jehovah of armies says:
‘Look! A calamity is spreading from nation to nation,+
And a great tempest will be unleashed from the remotest parts of the earth.+
33 “‘And those slain by Jehovah in that day will be from one end of the earth clear to the other end of the earth. They will not be mourned, nor will they be gathered up or buried. They will become like manure on the surface of the ground.’
34 Wail, you shepherds, and cry out!
Wallow about, you majestic ones of the flock,
Because the time of your slaughter and your dispersion has come,
And you will fall like a precious vessel!
35 The shepherds have no place to flee,
And there is no escape for the majestic ones of the flock.
36 Listen! The outcry of the shepherds
And the wailing of the majestic ones of the flock,
For Jehovah is devastating their pasture.
37 And the peaceful dwelling places have been made lifeless
Because of the burning anger of Jehovah.
