39:17 “As for you, son of man, this is what the sovereign Lord says: Tell every kind of bird and every wild beast: ‘Assemble and come! Gather from all around to my slaughter 1 which I am going to make for you, a great slaughter on the mountains of Israel! You will eat flesh and drink blood. 39:18 You will eat the flesh of warriors 2 and drink the blood of the princes of the earth – the rams, lambs, goats, and bulls, all of them fattened animals of Bashan. 39:19 You will eat fat until you are full, and drink blood until you are drunk, 3 at my slaughter 4 which I have made for you. 39:20 You will fill up at my table with horses and charioteers, 5 with warriors and all the soldiers,’ declares the sovereign Lord.
39:21 “I will display my majesty 6 among the nations. All the nations will witness the judgment I have executed, and the power I have exhibited 7 among them. 39:22 Then the house of Israel will know that I am the Lord their God, from that day forward.
