Isaiah 34 ©
The indignation wherewith God avengeth his church of her enemies to their utter desolation. The certainty of the prophecy.
bFor 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.
And eall 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.
hThe 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.
¶mBut the 4cormorant and the bittern shall possess it; the owl also and the raven shall dwell in it: and he nshall stretch out upon it the line of confusion, and the stones of emptiness.
6The wild beasts of the desert shall also meet with 7the wild beasts of the island, and the *satyr shall cry to his fellow; the 8screech owl also shall rest there, and find for herself a place of rest.
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.
¶Seek ye out of rthe book of the LORD, and read: sno one of these shall tfail, none shall want her mate: for umy mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.
