You will eat the flesh of the mighty and drink the blood of the rulers of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of he-goats, of bulls; all of them fatlings of Bashan. Bible other translations

“of rams, of lambs and of he-goats, of bulls.” These animal terms are all referring to people of various ranks and authority. Technically, the figure of speech is called hypocatastasis, a comparison by implication (see commentary on Revelation 20:2).
