You will drink the poison in that cup. You will drink it to the last drop. You will throw down the glass and break it to pieces. You will tear at your breasts from the pain. This will happen because I am the Lord God, and this is what I said.
“‘You copied the life of your sister. Now I’ll let you drink the cup she drank. “‘This is the Message of God, the Master: “‘You’ll drink your sister’s cup, a cup canyon-deep and ocean-wide. You’ll be shunned and taunted as you drink from that cup, full to the brim. You’ll be falling-down-drunk and the tears will flow as you drink from that cup titanic with terror: It’s the cup of your sister Samaria. You’ll drink it dry, then smash it to bits and eat the pieces, and end up tearing at your breasts. I’ve given the word— Decree of God, the Master.
You will drink it down and drain it dry; then you will smash the cup to pieces And gnaw on its shattered remains; you will tear at the breasts your enemies once fondled. For I, the Eternal Lord, have spoken.
And thou shalt drink it, and thou shalt drink of (it) till to the dregs, (or unto the lees,) and thou shalt devour the remnants thereof (and thou shalt devour its remnants), and thou shalt rend thy breasts, for I the Lord spake, saith the Lord God.
