32 See, declares the Lord Almighty, the punishment shall go from nation to nation—a great whirlwind of wrath shall rise against the farthest corners of the earth. 33 On that day those the Lord has slain shall fill the earth from one end to the other. No one shall mourn for them nor gather up the bodies to bury them; they shall fertilize the earth.

34 Weep and moan, O evil shepherds; let the leaders of mankind beat their heads upon the stones, for their time has come to be slaughtered and scattered; they shall fall like fragile women.

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)
