Now, God goes back to the big theme of devastating the whole earth and not just specific nations. He's going to mess everything up and no one will escape: priests, maids, slaves, buyers, sellers. They're all in for it.
The earth and the heavens both wither up. The people all suffer and die as a penalty for their sins, just as wine dries up when the vine that supplies it withers.
No one will be able to party anymore, and there will be a massive wine shortage that depresses all the people still living in these devastated cities.
Everyone's going to praise God and sing songs of joy after this has all run its course, but for now Isaiah says that he will just be pining away.
Isaiah says that every inhabitant of the earth is at risk of getting destroyed.
Anyone who tries to run away will end up getting trapped.
The earth will stumble around like a drunkard because of its bad deeds.
God's going to punish both his own host, in heaven, and all the kings of the earth. They'll be locked in a pit and punished after many days.
The moon and sun will both be ashamed because God is replacing them and ruling over the earth with his own glory from Mount Zion.
