therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: Surely I have spoken in the fire of my zeal against the rest of the nations, and against all Edom, who with great joy and utter contempt have made my land their property and prey, because of its pasture.'
For a fire has been kindled by my anger, and it burns to lowest Sheol; it consumes the earth and its produce, and ignites the foundations of the mountains.
The earth heaved and shook; the roots of the mountains trembled; they heaved because he was angry.
How long, O Lord, will this last? Will you remain hidden forever? Will your anger continue to burn like fire?
The Lord is a zealous and avenging God; the Lord is avenging and very angry. The Lord takes vengeance against his foes; he sustains his rage against his enemies.
For our God is indeed a devouring fire.
