Yahweh's Judgment On The Nations

2 I will gather all the nations, and I will bring them down to the valley of Jehoshaphat, and I will argue {a case against them} there concerning my people and my inheritance Israel whom they have scattered among the nations, and my land [that] they have divided. 3 For my people they cast lots, and {they traded} the male child for the prostitute, and the female child they sold for wine and they drank [it]. 4 What [are] you to me, Tyre and Sidon, and all of the regions of Philistia? Are you repaying to me what is deserved? If you [are] recompensing me, I will return swiftly [and] quickly what you deserve on your head!
