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.
