13 You should not march through the gates of my people
    in the day of their disaster,
nor gloat over them in their calamity(A)
    in the day of their disaster,
nor seize their wealth
    in the day of their disaster.
14 You should not wait at the crossroads
    to cut down their fugitives,(B)
nor hand over their survivors
    in the day of their trouble.

15 “The day of the Lord is near(C)
    for all nations.
As you have done, it will be done to you;
    your deeds(D) will return upon your own head.
16 Just as you drank(E) on my holy hill,(F)
    so all the nations will drink(G) continually;
they will drink and drink
    and be as if they had never been.(H)
17 But on Mount Zion will be deliverance;(I)
    it will be holy,(J)
    and Jacob will possess his inheritance.(K)
18 Jacob will be a fire
    and Joseph a flame;
Esau will be stubble,
    and they will set him on fire(L) and destroy(M) him.
There will be no survivors(N)
    from Esau.”
The Lord has spoken.
