And all the host of heaven [a]shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be folded like a book: and all their hosts shall fall as the leaf falleth from the vine, and as it falleth from the fig tree.

For my sword shall be [b]drunken in the heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Edom, even upon the people of [c]my curse to judgment.

The sword of the Lord is filled with blood: it is made fat with the fat and with the blood of the [d]lambs and the goats, with the fat of the kidneys of the rams: for the Lord hath a sacrifice in [e]Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.
