29 For look, on the city that is called by[a] my name I am beginning to inflict harm, and you indeed, will you go unpunished? You will not go unpunished, for I am summoning a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth,” declares[b] Yahweh of hosts.’

30 And you yourself shall prophesy against them all these words, and you shall say to them:

‘Yahweh will roar from on high,
    and from his holy dwelling place[c] he will give his voice.
He will roar mightily against his settlement,
    a jubilant shout like those who tread grapes,
he will answer against all the inhabitants of the earth.
31 The rage of battle will resound to the end of the earth,
    for there is a lawsuit of Yahweh against the nations.
He is entering into judgment with all wicked flesh,
    he will give them to the sword,’ declares[d] Yahweh.”
