Force them to drink the cup of wrath (Jer 25:27-25:27)

“Then you shall say to them.

Thus says Yahweh of hosts!

The God of Israel!

‘Drink!

Get drunk!

Vomit!

Fall!

Rise no more!

Because I am sending

The sword

Among you.’”

Yahweh told Jeremiah what he was to say to each of these kings and rulers. The God of Israel wanted them to drink and get drunk. He wanted them to vomit and drink some more. They were going to fall down and then not be able to get up. Yahweh was going to send the sword against them to bring about their deaths.
