NASB — Isaiah 34 — KJV

God’s Wrath against Nations

  1 Draw near, aO nations, to hear; and listen, O peoples!
  bLet the earth and Iall it contains hear, and the world and all that springs from it.
  2 For the LORDS aindignation is against all the nations,
  And [His] wrath against all their armies;
  He has Ibutterly destroyed them,
  He has given them over to cslaughter.
  3 So their slain will be athrown out,
  And their corpses Iwill give off their bstench,
  And the mountains will IIbe drenched with their cblood.
  4 And aall the host of heaven will Iwear away,
  And the bsky will be rolled up like a scroll;
  All their hosts will also wither away
  As a leaf withers from the vine,
  Or as [one] withers from the fig tree.
  5 For aMy sword is satiated in heaven,
  Behold it shall descend for judgment upon bEdom
  And upon the people whom I have cdevoted to destruction.
  6 The sword of the LORD is filled with blood,
  It is Isated with fat, with the blood of lambs and goats,
  With the fat of the kidneys of rams.
  For the LORD has a sacrifice in aBozrah
  And a great slaughter in the land of bEdom.
  7 aWild oxen will also Ifall with them
  And byoung bulls with strong ones;
  Thus their land will be csoaked with blood,
  And their dust IIbecome greasy with fat.
  8 For the LORD has a day of avengeance,
  A year of recompense for the Icause of Zion.
  9 IIts streams will be turned into pitch,
  And its loose earth into abrimstone,
  And its land will become burning pitch.
  10 It will anot be quenched night or day;
  Its bsmoke will go up forever.
  From cgeneration to generation it will be desolate;
  dNone will pass through it forever and ever.
  11 But Iapelican and hedgehog will possess it,
  And IIowl and raven will dwell in it;
  And He will stretch over it the bline of IIIdesolation
  And the IVplumb line of emptiness.
  12 Its nobles—there is ano one there
  [Whom] they may proclaim king
  And all its princes will be bnothing.
  13 Thorns will come up in its afortified towers,
  Nettles and thistles in its fortified cities;
  It will also be a haunt of bjackals
  [And] an abode of ostriches.
  14 The desert acreatures will meet with the Iwolves,
  The IIahairy goat also will cry to its kind;
  Yes, the IIInight monster will settle there
  And will find herself a resting place.
  15 The tree snake will make its nest and lay [eggs] there,
  And it will hatch and gather [them] under its Iprotection.
  Yes, athe IIhawks will be gathered there,
  Every one with its kind.

The judgments wherewith God revengeth his Church.

1 ¶ Come near, ye nations, to hear; and hearken, ye people: let the earth hear, and all that is therein; the world, and all things that come forth of it. 2 For the indignation of the LORD [is] upon all nations, and [his] fury upon all their armies: he hath utterly destroyed them, he hath delivered them to the slaughter. 3 Their slain also shall be cast out, and their stink shall come up out of their carcases, and the mountains shall be melted with their blood. 4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, 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. 5 For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment. 6 The sword of the LORD is filled with blood, it is made fat with fatness, [and] with the blood of lambs and goats, with the fat of the kidneys of rams: for the LORD hath a sacrifice in Bozrah, and a great slaughter in the land of Idumea. 7 And the unicorns shall come down with them, and the bullocks with the bulls; and their land shall be soaked with blood, and their dust made fat with fatness. 8 For [it is] the day of the LORD'S vengeance, [and] the year of recompences for the controversy of Zion. 9 And the streams thereof shall be turned into pitch, and the dust thereof into brimstone, and the land thereof shall become burning pitch. 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.

The desolation of her enemies.

11 ¶ But the cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he shall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness. 12 They shall call the nobles thereof to the kingdom, but none [shall be] there, and all her princes shall be nothing. 13 And thorns shall come up in her palaces, nettles and brambles in the fortresses thereof: and it shall be an habitation of dragons, [and] a court for owls. 14 The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with the wild beasts of the island, and the satyr shall cry to his fellow; the screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest. 15 There shall the great owl make her nest, and lay, and hatch, and gather under her shadow: there shall the vultures also be gathered, every one with her mate.
