“Prepare a slaughtering place for his sons Because of the wickedness [the sin, the injustice, the wrongdoing] of their fathers. They must not rise and take possession of the earth, And fill the face of the world with cities.”
Prepare to ·kill his children [execute/slaughter his sons], ·because their father is guilty [for the sins of their fathers/ancestors]. They will never ·again take control of [L rise and possess] the earth; they will never again fill the ·world [surface/L face of the earth/world] with their cities.
So prepare a place to kill his children. Kill them because of the sins of the rulers who lived before them. They must not rise to power. They must not rule over the world. They must not cover the earth with their cities.”
Let them be obliterated because of their fathers’ wicked deeds so that they never have a chance to follow in their steps,Terrorizing and possessing the earth, filling up the world with their cities! Then people can live in normalcy and peace.
Make ye ready his sons to slaying, for the wickedness of their fathers; they shall not rise, neither they shall inherit the land, neither they shall fill the face of the roundness (of the earth) of cities. (Prepare ye his sons for killing, for the wickedness of their forefathers; they shall not rise up and inherit the land, nor shall they fill the face of the roundness of the earth with their cities.)
