29 For behold, I am (A)beginning to inflict disaster on this city which is (B)called by My name, so should you be completely free from punishment? You will not be free from punishment, for (C)I am summoning a sword against all the inhabitants of the earth,” declares the Lord of armies.’

30 “Therefore you shall prophesy against them all these words, and you shall say to them,

‘The (D)Lord will (E)roar from on high
And raise His voice from His holy dwelling;
He will roar forcefully against His [a]fold.
He will shout like those who tread the grapes,
Against all the inhabitants of the earth.
31 A clamor has come to the end of the earth,
Because the Lord has (F)a controversy with the nations.
He is entering into (G)judgment with [b]humanity;
As for the wicked, He has turned them over to the sword,’ declares the Lord.”

29 See, I am beginning to bring disaster(A) on the city that bears my Name,(B) and will you indeed go unpunished?(C) You will not go unpunished, for I am calling down a sword(D) on all(E) who live on the earth,(F) declares the Lord Almighty.’

30 “Now prophesy all these words against them and say to them:

“‘The Lord will roar(G) from on high;
    he will thunder(H) from his holy dwelling(I)
    and roar mightily against his land.
He will shout like those who tread(J) the grapes,
    shout against all who live on the earth.
31 The tumult(K) will resound to the ends of the earth,
    for the Lord will bring charges(L) against the nations;
he will bring judgment(M) on all(N) mankind
    and put the wicked to the sword,(O)’”
