15 For the day of the Lord is near upon all the nations.
As you have done, it shall be done to you,
    your deeds shall return on your own head.
16 For as you have drunk upon my holy mountain,
    all the nations round about shall drink;
they shall drink, and stagger,[a]
    and shall be as though they had not been.

Israel’s Final Triumph

17 But in Mount Zion there shall be those that escape,
    and it shall be holy;
and the house of Jacob shall possess their own possessions.
18 The house of Jacob shall be a fire,
    and the house of Joseph a flame,
    and the house of Esau stubble;
they shall burn them and consume them,
    and there shall be no survivor to the house of Esau;
                for the Lord has spoken.
19 Those of the Negeb shall possess Mount Esau,
    and those of the Shephe′lah the land of the Philistines;
they shall possess the land of E′phraim and the land of Samar′ia
    and Benjamin shall possess Gilead.
20 The exiles in Halah[b] who are of the people of Israel
    shall possess[c] Phoenicia as far as Zar′ephath;
and the exiles of Jerusalem who are in Sephar′ad
    shall possess the cities of the Negeb.
21 Saviors shall go up to Mount Zion
    to rule Mount Esau;
    and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s.
