Kill all her young bulls; let them go down to the slaughter! Woe to them! For their day has come, the time for them to be punished.
"I will bring them down like lambs to the slaughter, like rams and goats.
I will leave you in the desert, you and all the fish of your streams. You will fall on the open field and not be gathered or picked up. I will give you as food to the beasts of the earth and the birds of the sky.
At the sacrifice I am preparing for you, you will eat fat till you are glutted and drink blood till you are drunk.
