For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.
You will be filled with shame instead of glory. Now it is your turn! Drink and let your nakedness be exposed! The cup from the LORD's right hand is coming around to you, and disgrace will cover your glory.
