12 “Woe to him who builds a city with bloodshed And founds a town with [b]violence! 13 “Is it not indeed from the Lord of hosts That peoples toil for fire, And nations grow weary for nothing? 14 “For the earth will be filled With the knowledge of the glory of the Lord, As the waters cover the sea.
15 “Woe to you who make [c]your neighbors drink, Who mix in your venom even to make them drunk So as to look on their nakedness! 16 “You will be filled with disgrace rather than honor. Now you yourself drink and [d]expose your own nakedness. The cup in the Lord’s right hand will come around to you, And utter disgrace will come upon your glory. 17 “For the violence [e]done to Lebanon will [f]overwhelm you, And the devastation of its beasts [g]by which you terrified them, Because of human bloodshed and violence [h]done to the land, To the town and all its inhabitants.
