10 That day is the day of the Lord God of hosts,
    a day of retribution,
    to gain vindication from his foes.
The sword shall devour and be sated,
    and drink its fill of their blood.
For the Lord God of hosts holds a sacrifice
    in the land of the north by the river Euphrates.
11 Go up to Gilead, and take balm,
    O virgin daughter Egypt!
In vain you have used many medicines;
    there is no healing for you.
12 The nations have heard of your shame,
    and the earth is full of your cry;
for warrior has stumbled against warrior;
    both have fallen 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.”
