A Sword Against the Ammonites

28 “And you, son of man, prophesy and say, ‘Thus says the Lord God (A)concerning the Ammonites and concerning their reproach,’ and say:

‘A sword, a sword is drawn,
Polished for slaughter,
For consuming, for flashing—
29 While they (B)see false visions for you,
While they divine a lie to you,
To bring you on the necks of the wicked, the slain
(C)Whose day has come,
Whose iniquity shall end.

30 ‘Return(D) it to its sheath.
(E)I will judge you
In the place where you were created,
(F)In the land of your [a]nativity.
31 I will (G)pour out My indignation on you;
I will (H)blow against you with the fire of My wrath,
And deliver you into the hands of brutal men who are skillful to (I)destroy.
32 You shall be fuel for the fire;
Your blood shall be in the midst of the land.
(J)You shall not be remembered,
For I the Lord have spoken.’ ”
