28 “And you, son of man, prophesy and say, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says about the Ammonites(A) and their insults:

“‘A sword,(B) a sword,
    drawn for the slaughter,
polished to consume
    and to flash like lightning!
29 Despite false visions concerning you
    and lying divinations(C) about you,
it will be laid on the necks
    of the wicked who are to be slain,
whose day has come,
    whose time of punishment has reached its climax.(D)

30 “‘Let the sword return to its sheath.(E)
    In the place where you were created,
in the land of your ancestry,(F)
    I will judge you.
31 I will pour out my wrath on you
    and breathe(G) out my fiery anger(H) against you;
I will deliver you into the hands of brutal men,
    men skilled in destruction.(I)
32 You will be fuel for the fire,(J)
    your blood will be shed in your land,
you will be remembered(K) no more;
    for I the Lord have spoken.’”
