The Cup of Judgment on the Nations. 15 [a]For thus said the Lord, the God of Israel, to me: Take this cup of the wine of wrath[b] from my hand and have all the nations to whom I will send you drink it. 16 They shall drink, and retch, and go mad, because of the sword I will send among them.

The Cup of God’s Wrath

15 This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, said to me: “Take from my hand this cup filled with the wine of my wrath and make all the nations to whom I send you drink it. 16 When they drink it, they will stagger and go mad because of the sword I will send among them.”
