Context Readings

Judgment On The Nations

8 For the Lord has a day of vengeance,
a time of paying back Edom
for its hostility against Zion.
9 Edom’s streams will be turned into pitch,
her soil into sulfur;
her land will become burning pitch.
10 It will never go out—day or night.
Its smoke will go up forever.
It will be desolate, from generation to generation;
no one will pass through it forever and ever.
