What Do the Bible and Quran Say About the Nations Which Acquire Woe?
Nations that deserve Woe in the Bible:
There are many Woes to the Israelites that are mentioned in six verses, Woes to Jerusalem, the bloody city! In five verses then there are another five Woe that are allied to the Israelites ; and they are Woes to: 1) the shepherds of Israel, 2) Ephraim (one of the Israelites’ tribes), 3) Ariel, the city where David dwelt, 4) Zion and 5) the daughter of Zion.
Woes to the Israelites (in six verses):
Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Woe unto us! for we are spoiled.
Prepare ye war against her; arise, and let us go up at noon. Woe unto us! for the day goeth away, for the shadows of the evening are stretched out.
The crown is fallen from our head: woe unto us, that we have sinned!
Woe unto them! for they have fled from me: destruction unto them! because they have transgressed against me: though I have redeemed them, yet they have spoken lies against me.
Though they bring up their children, yet will I bereave them, that there shall not be a man left: yea, woe also to them when I depart from them!
Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.
Woes to Jerusalem, the bloody city! The filthy, polluted, and oppressing city! (In five verses):
I have seen thine adulteries, and thy neighings, the lewdness of thy whoredom, and thine abominations on the hills in the fields. Woe unto thee, O Jerusalem! wilt thou not be made clean? when shall it once be?
Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city, to the pot whose scum is therein, and whose scum is not gone out of it! bring it out piece by piece; let no lot fall upon it.
Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city! I will even make the pile for fire great.
Woe to the bloody city! it is all full of lies and robbery; the prey departeth not;
Woe to her that is filthy and polluted, to the oppressing city!
Woe to the shepherds of Israel
Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
Woe to Ephraim (one of the Israelites’ tribes).
Woe to the crown of pride, to the drunkards of Ephraim, whose glorious beauty is a fading flower, which are on the head of the fat valleys of them that are overcome with wine!
Woe to Ariel, the city where David dwelt
Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.
Woe to them that are at ease in Zion
Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are named chief of the nations, to whom the house of Israel came!
Woe to the daughter of Zion
For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that bringeth forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Zion, that bewaileth herself, that spreadeth her hands, saying, Woe is me now! For my soul is wearied because of murderers.
In addition, then there are a dozen of Woes that are distributed unto 1) Moab, 2) Philistines, 3) Assyrian, 4) the land which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia, 5) those who go to Egypt, 6) Babylon, 7) Cherethites!, 8) the land of the Philistines, 9) Unrepentant Cities, 10) Chorazin!, 11) Bethsaida and 12) the multitude of many people.
Woes to Moab:
Woe to thee, Moab! thou art undone, O people of Chemosh: he hath given his sons that escaped, and his daughters, into captivity unto Sihon king of the Amorites.
Against Moab thus saith the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel; Woe unto Nebo! for it is spoiled: Kiriathaim is confounded and taken: Misgab is confounded and dismayed.
Woe be unto thee, O Moab! the people of Chemosh perisheth: for thy sons are taken captives, and thy daughters captives.
Woe to the Philistines
1 Samuel 4:7
And the Philistines were afraid, for they said; God is come into the camp. And they said, Woe unto us! for there hath not been such a thing heretofore.
1 Samuel 4:8
Woe unto us! Who shall deliver us out of the hand of these mighty Gods? These are the Gods that smote the Egyptians with all the plagues in the wilderness.
Woe to the Assyrian
[God's Judgment on Assyria] “Woe to the Assyrian, the rod of my anger, in whose hand is the club of my wrath!
Woe to the land which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia
Woe to the land shadowing with wings, which is beyond the rivers of Ethiopia:
Woe to those who go to Egypt
Woe to them that go down to Egypt for help; and stay on horses, and trust in chariots, because they are many; and in horsemen, because they are very strong; but they look not unto the Holy One of Israel, neither seek the Lord!
‘Woe! Woe to Babylon, the great city, the city of power
Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry: “‘Woe! Woe, O great city, O Babylon, city of power! In one hour your doom has come!’
And cry out: “‘Woe! Woe, O great city, dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet, and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!
They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and mourning cry out: “‘Woe! Woe, O great city, where all who had ships on the sea became rich through her wealth! In one hour she has been brought to ruin!
Woe to the inhabitants of the sea coast, the nation of the Cherethites!, the land of the Philistines,

Woe on Unrepentant Cities
[Woe on Unrepentant Cities] Then Jesus began to denounce the cities in which most of his miracles had been performed, because they did not repent.
Woe to Chorazin! And Bethsaida
Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works, which were done in you, had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes.
Woe to the multitude of many people
Woe to the multitude of many people, which make a noise like the noise of the seas; and to the rushing of nations, that make a rushing like the rushing of mighty waters!
However, the most interesting feature is that there are three Woes (Woe, Woe, and Woe) to the inhabiters of the earth and to the entire world
Woe, Woe and Woe to the inhabiters of the earth
And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Woe to the entire world
Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!
Also, there are three more successive Woes!
One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.
The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
Nations that deserve Woe in the Quran:
Although the Bible mentions Woes in relation to specific nations and places e.g. Israelites Jerusalem Ephraim Ariel, Zion, Moab, Philistines, Assyrian, Ethiopia, Egypt, Babylon, Cherethites, Chorazin, Bethsaida etc., however, the Quran never mentions any specific nation and/or place in relation to Woe. Allah is warning some kinds of people with Woe. Such people may be found in any nation and in any place.
Woe to the unbelievers for a terrible punishment, Woe to the unbelievers because of the Fire! Woe then to the unbelievers for their Day which they were promised! , Woe to those who disbelieve for the scene of a Dreadful Day, Woe to the idolaters, Woe to those who did evil among the punishment of a Painful Day and Woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say: ‘This is from Allah, ‘ in order to gain a small price for it. So Woe to them for what their hands have written, and Woe to them for their earnings. It is obvious that the Quran is interesting in teaching us about the Day of Judgment and the Afterlife.

What do you suppose was Hitler’s favourite bit of the Old Testament, you know the Jewish Bible, he loved Jews?
As all atheists know, Hitler was a devout God fearing Christian who was never without his Bible.
Which do you suppose was his favourite Jewish book in the Bible:
Samuel (I & II)
Kings (I & II)
Song of Songs
Chronicles (I & II)
Kosher – I’m not knocking Jews, Atheists always claim what a huge Xian Hitler was so this is a fair question
he wasn’t a devout christian.
