New International Version
2 The Lord is angry with all nations;
his wrath(A) is on all their armies.
He will totally destroy[a](B) them,
he will give them over to slaughter.(C)
3 Their slain(D) will be thrown out,
their dead bodies(E) will stink;(F)
the mountains will be soaked with their blood.(G)
4 All the stars in the sky will be dissolved(H)
and the heavens rolled up(I) like a scroll;
all the starry host will fall(J)
like withered(K) leaves from the vine,
like shriveled figs from the fig tree.
5 My sword(L) has drunk its fill in the heavens;
see, it descends in judgment on Edom,(M)
the people I have totally destroyed.(N)
6 The sword(O) 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(P) in Bozrah(Q)
and a great slaughter(R) in the land of Edom.
7 And the wild oxen(S) will fall with them,
the bull calves and the great bulls.(T)
Their land will be drenched with blood,(U)
and the dust will be soaked with fat.
- Isaiah 34:2 The Hebrew term refers to the irrevocable giving over of things or persons to the Lord, often by totally destroying them; also in verse 5.
