Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
4 All the host of heaven shall rot away,
and the skies roll up like a scroll.
All their host shall fall,
as leaves fall from the vine,
like leaves falling from the fig tree.
5 For my sword has drunk its fill in the heavens;
behold, it descends for judgment upon Edom,
upon the people I have doomed.
6 The Lord has a sword; it is sated with blood,
it is gorged with fat,
with the blood of lambs and goats,
with the fat of the kidneys of rams.
For the Lord has a sacrifice in Bozrah,
a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
New International Version
4 All the stars in the sky will be dissolved(A)
and the heavens rolled up(B) like a scroll;
all the starry host will fall(C)
like withered(D) leaves from the vine,
like shriveled figs from the fig tree.
5 My sword(E) has drunk its fill in the heavens;
see, it descends in judgment on Edom,(F)
the people I have totally destroyed.(G)
6 The sword(H) of the Lord is bathed in blood,
it is covered with fat—
the blood of lambs and goats,
fat from the kidneys of rams.
For the Lord has a sacrifice(I) in Bozrah(J)
and a great slaughter(K) in the land of Edom.
