15 See, Jehovah comes with fire,
his chariots like a whirlwind, to retaliate in furious anger,
to rebuke with conflagrations of fire. 16 For with fire and with his sword shall Jehovah
execute judgment on all flesh, and those slain by Jehovah shall be many.


17 As for the cultists who fornicate in the parks, the devotees of one in the center, who eat the flesh of swine and prawn and rodents—they with [their practices and ideas] shall be made an end of, says Jehovah.


18 For I will come to gather all nations and tongues,


that they may approach and behold my glory.


19 And I will set a mark upon them, sending those of them who survive to the nations that had not heard the news concerning me, nor seen my glory—to Tarshish, Pul, and Lud (the archers), to Tubal and Javan, and to the distant isles.


And they shall declare my glory


among the nations 20 and shall bring back all your brethren from throughout the nations to Jerusalem my holy mountain, says Jehovah, as offerings to Jehovah—on horses, in chariots and wagons, and on mules and dromedaries—


just as the Israelites brought offerings in pure vessels to the house of Jehovah. 21 Of them likewise I will accept men to be priests and Levites, says Jehovah. 22 And as the new heavens and the new earth which I make shall endure before me, says Jehovah, so shall your offspring and name endure.


23 And New Moon after New Moon, Sabbath after Sabbath, all flesh shall come to worship before me, says Jehovah. 24 And they shall go out and look upon the corpses of the people who transgressed against me, whose worms do not die and whose fire shall not be extinguished. They shall be a horror to all flesh.
