2 The Lord is a jealousd and avenging God;
the Lord takes vengeancee and is filled with wrath.
The Lord takes vengeance on his foes
and vents his wrath against his enemies.f
3 The Lord is slow to angerg but great in power;
the Lord will not leave the guilty unpunished.h
and cloudsk are the dust of his feet.
he makes all the rivers run dry.
Bashan and Carmeln wither
and the blossoms of Lebanon fade.
5 The mountains quakeo before him
and the hills melt away.p
The earth tremblesq at his presence,
the world and all who live in it.r
6 Who can withstands his indignation?
His wrath is poured out like fire;v
the rocks are shatteredw before him.
7 The Lord is good,x
a refuge in times of trouble.y
8 but with an overwhelming floodb
he will make an end of Nineveh;
he will pursue his foes into the realm of darkness.
9 Whatever they plotc against the Lord
he will bringa to an end;
trouble will not come a second time.
10 They will be entangled among thornsd
and drunke from their wine;
who plots evil against the Lord
and devises wicked plans.
“Although they have allies and are numerous,
they will be destroyedg and pass away.
Although I have afflicted you, Judah,
I will afflict you no more.h
13 Now I will break their yokei from your neck
and tear your shackles away.”j
“You will have no descendants to bear your name.k
I will destroy the imagesl and idols
that are in the temple of your gods.
I will prepare your grave,m
for you are vile.”
the feet of one who brings good news,n
who proclaims peace!o
Celebrate your festivals,p Judah,
and fulfill your vows.
No more will the wicked invade you;q
they will be completely destroyed.c
