Jeremiah 25:30-38

30You, therefore, shall prophesy against them all these words, and say to them: The Lord will roar from on high, and from his holy habitation utter his voice; he will roar mightily against his fold, and shout, like those who tread grapes, against all the inhabitants of the earth. 31The clamor will resound to the ends of the earth, for the Lord has an indictment against the nations; he is entering into judgment with all flesh, and the guilty he will put to the sword, says the Lord. 32Thus says the Lord of hosts: See, disaster is spreading from nation to nation, and a great tempest is stirring from the farthest parts of the earth! 33Those slain by the Lord on that day shall extend from one end of the earth to the other. They shall not be lamented, or gathered, or buried; they shall become dung on the surface of the ground. 34Wail, you shepherds, and cry out; roll in ashes, you lords of the flock, for the days of your slaughter have come—and your dispersions, and you shall fall like a choice vessel. 35Flight shall fail the shepherds, and there shall be no escape for the lords of the flock. 36Hark! the cry of the shepherds, and the wail of the lords of the flock! For the Lord is despoiling their pasture, 37and the peaceful folds are devastated, because of the fierce anger of the Lord. 38Like a lion he has left his covert; for their land has become a waste because of the cruel sword, and because of his fierce anger.
