14 Now this is what the Lord has decreed about you, Nineveh:[a]

        because you are vile.”

    The feet of the one who brings good news,
        who broadcasts a message of peace.
Judah, celebrate your solemn festivals
    and keep your vows,
because the wicked will never again invade you.
    Nineveh[d] will be[e] completely eliminated!
