10 For this is the day of the Lord God of hosts, a day of vengeance, that He may avenge Him of His adversaries. And the sword shall devour, and it shall be sated and made drunk with their blood; for the Lord God of hosts hath a sacrifice in the north country by the River Euphrates.

11 Go up into Gilead and take balm, O virgin, the daughter of Egypt; in vain shalt thou use many medicines; for thou shalt not be cured.

12 The nations have heard of thy shame, and thy cry hath filled the land; for the mighty man hath stumbled against the mighty, and they are fallen both together.”

10 But that day(A) belongs to the Lord, the Lord Almighty—
    a day of vengeance(B), for vengeance on his foes.
The sword will devour(C) till it is satisfied,
    till it has quenched its thirst with blood.(D)
For the Lord, the Lord Almighty, will offer sacrifice(E)
    in the land of the north by the River Euphrates.(F)

11 “Go up to Gilead and get balm,(G)
    Virgin(H) Daughter Egypt.
But you try many medicines in vain;
    there is no healing(I) for you.
12 The nations will hear of your shame;
    your cries will fill the earth.
One warrior will stumble over another;
    both will fall(J) down together.”
