The Day of the Lord Is Near

15 For (A)the day of the Lord is near upon all the nations.
(B)As you have done, it shall be done to you;
    your deeds shall return on your own head.
16 (C)For as you have drunk on (D)my holy mountain,
    so all the nations shall drink continually;
they shall drink and swallow,
    and shall be as though they had never been.
17 (E)But in Mount Zion there shall be those who escape,
    and it shall be holy,
(F)and the house of Jacob shall possess their own possessions.
18 (G)The house of Jacob shall be a fire,
    and the house of Joseph a flame,
    and the house of Esau (H)stubble;
they shall burn them and consume them,
    (I)and there shall be no survivor for the house of Esau,
for the Lord has spoken.

The Kingdom of the Lord

19 Those of (J)the Negeb (K)shall possess (L)Mount Esau,
    and those of the Shephelah shall possess (M)the land of the Philistines;
they shall possess the land of Ephraim and the land of (N)Samaria,
    and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
20 The exiles of this host of the people of Israel
    shall possess the land of the Canaanites as far as (O)Zarephath,
and the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
    shall possess the cities of the Negeb.
21 (P)Saviors shall go up to Mount Zion
    to rule (Q)Mount Esau,
    and (R)the kingdom shall be the Lord's.
