Yeshayahu (Book of Isaiah), Chapter 34

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Come near, ye nations, to hear, and attend, ye peoples; let the earth hear, and the fulness thereof, the world, and all things that come forth of it.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 For HaShem hath indignation against all the nations, and fury against all their host; He hath utterly destroyed them, He hath delivered them to the slaughter.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and the stench of their carcasses shall come up, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 And all the host of heaven shall moulder away, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll; and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig-tree.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 For My sword hath drunk its fill in heaven; behold, it shall come down upon Edom, and upon the people of My ban, to judgment.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 The sword of HaShem is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams; for HaShem hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Edom.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 And the wild-oxen shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be drunken with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 For HaShem hath a day of vengeance, a year of recompense for the controversy of Zion.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 It shall not be quenched night nor day, the smoke thereof shall go up for ever; from generation to generation it shall lie waste: none shall pass through it for ever and ever.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 But the pelican and the bittern shall possess it, and the owl and the raven shall dwell therein; and He shall stretch over it the line of confusion, and the plummet of emptiness.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 As for her nobles, none shall be there to be called to the kingdom; and all her princes shall be nothing.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and thistles in the fortresses thereof; and it shall be a habitation of wild-dogs, an enclosure for ostriches.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 And the wild-cats shall meet with the jackals, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; yea, the night-monster shall repose there, and shall find her a place of rest.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 There shall the arrowsnake make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and brood under her shadow; yea, there shall the kites be gathered, every one with her mate.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 Seek ye out of the book of HaShem, and read; no one of these shall be missing, none shall want her mate; for My mouth it hath commanded, and the breath thereof it hath gathered them.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 And He hath cast the lot for them, and His hand hath divided it unto them by line; they shall possess it for ever, from generation to generation shall they dwell therein.
