Highlights:



Ruin Imminent and Inevitable

1 Ah! City of bloodshed,

utterly deceitful, full of booty—

no end to the plunder!

2 The crack of whip and rumble of wheel,

galloping horse and bounding chariot!

3 Horsemen charging,

flashing sword and glittering spear,

piles of dead,

heaps of corpses,

dead bodies without end—

they stumble over the bodies!

4 Because of the countless debaucheries of the prostitute,

gracefully alluring, mistress of sorcery,

who enslaves nations through her debaucheries,

and peoples through her sorcery,

5 I am against you,

says the LORD of hosts,

and will lift up your skirts over your face;

and I will let nations look on your nakedness

and kingdoms on your shame.

6 I will throw filth at you

and treat you with contempt,

and make you a spectacle.

7 Then all who see you will shrink from you and say,

“Nineveh is devastated; who will bemoan her?”

Where shall I seek comforters for you?
