New Century Version
7 The oxen will be killed,
and the cattle and the strong bulls.
The land will be filled with their blood,
and the dirt will be covered with their fat.
8 The Lord has chosen a time for punishment.
He has chosen a year when people must pay for the wrongs they did to Jerusalem.
9 Edom’s rivers will be like hot tar.
Its dirt will be like burning sulfur.
Its land will be like burning tar.
