New International Version
15 “The day of the Lord is near(A)
for all nations.
As you have done, it will be done to you;
your deeds(B) will return upon your own head.
16 Just as you drank(C) on my holy hill,(D)
so all the nations will drink(E) continually;
they will drink and drink
and be as if they had never been.(F)
17 But on Mount Zion will be deliverance;(G)
it will be holy,(H)
and Jacob will possess his inheritance.(I)
18 Jacob will be a fire
and Joseph a flame;
Esau will be stubble,
and they will set him on fire(J) and destroy(K) him.
There will be no survivors(L)
The Lord has spoken.
19 People from the Negev will occupy
the mountains of Esau,
and people from the foothills will possess
the land of the Philistines.(M)
They will occupy the fields of Ephraim and Samaria,(N)
and Benjamin(O) will possess Gilead.
20 This company of Israelite exiles who are in Canaan
will possess the land as far as Zarephath;(P)
the exiles from Jerusalem who are in Sepharad
will possess the towns of the Negev.(Q)
21 Deliverers(R) will go up on[a] Mount Zion
to govern the mountains of Esau.
And the kingdom will be the Lord’s.(S)
