32 “Thus says the Lord of hosts:
Behold, evil is going forth
    from nation to nation,
and a great tempest is stirring
    from the farthest parts of the earth!

33 “And those slain by the Lord on that day shall extend from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be lamented, or gathered, or buried; they shall be dung on the surface of the ground.

34 “Wail, you shepherds, and cry,
    and roll in ashes, you lords of the flock,
for the days of your slaughter and dispersion have come,
    and you shall fall like choice rams.[a]

  1. Jeremiah 25:34 Gk: Heb a choice vessel

32 This is what the Lord Almighty says:

“Look! Disaster(A) is spreading
    from nation to nation;(B)
a mighty storm(C) is rising
    from the ends of the earth.”(D)

33 At that time those slain(E) by the Lord will be everywhere—from one end of the earth to the other. They will not be mourned or gathered(F) up or buried,(G) but will be like dung lying on the ground.

34 Weep and wail, you shepherds;(H)
    roll(I) in the dust, you leaders of the flock.
For your time to be slaughtered(J) has come;
    you will fall like the best of the rams.[a](K)
