The anger of Yahweh (Isa 5:25-5:25)

“Therefore the anger of Yahweh

Was kindled against his people.

He stretched out his hand

Against them.

He struck them.

The mountains quaked.

Their corpses were

Like refuse in the streets.

His anger has not turned away

From all this.

His hand is stretched out still.”

Yahweh was angry at what was going on in Israel, Judah, and Jerusalem. These incidents ignited his anger. He stretched out his hand against them. He struck his own people. The mountains quaked. Their dead bodies were all over the streets like strewn garbage. His anger has even now not turned away, since his outstretched hands are still over them.
