Then said4 the LORD unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood4 before me, [yet] my mind [could] not [be] toward this people: cast [them] out16 of my sight, and let them go forth.4
And it shall come to pass, if they say4 unto thee, Whither shall we go forth?4 then thou shalt tell1 them, Thus saith1 the LORD; Such as [are] for death, to death; and such as [are] for the sword, to the sword; and such as [are] for the famine, to the famine; and such as [are] for the captivity, to the captivity.
And I will appoint1 over them four kinds, saith7 the LORD: the sword to slay,2 and the dogs to tear,2 and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour2 and destroy.53
And I will cause1 them to be removed 2113 into all kingdoms of the earth, because of Manasseh the son of Hezekiah king of Judah, for [that] which he did1 in Jerusalem.
For who shall have pity4 upon thee, O Jerusalem? or who shall bemoan4 thee? or who shall go aside4 to ask2 how thou doest?
Thou hast forsaken1 me, saith7 the LORD, thou art gone4 backward: therefore will I stretch out55 my hand against thee, and destroy55 thee; I am weary8 with repenting.9
And I will fan4 them with a fan in the gates of the land; I will bereave [them] of children,14 I will destroy14 my people, [since] they return1 not from their ways.
Their widows are increased1 to me above the sand of the seas: I have brought52 upon them against the mother of the young men a spoiler6 at noonday: I have caused [him] to fall52 upon it suddenly, and terrors upon the city.
She that hath borne6 seven languisheth:49 she hath given up1 the ghost; her sun is gone down1 while [it was] yet day: 3117 she hath been ashamed1 and confounded:1 and the residue of them will I deliver4 to the sword before their enemies,6 saith7 the LORD.
Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne1 me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have neither lent on usury,1 nor men have lent to me on usury;1 [yet] every one of them doth curse18 me.
The LORD said,1 Verily 518 it shall be well with thy remnant;14 8293 verily I will cause the enemy6 to entreat52 thee [well] in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.
Shall iron break4 the northern iron and the steel?
Thy substance and thy treasures will I give4 to the spoil without price, and [that] for all thy sins, even in all thy borders.
And I will make [thee] to pass52 with thine enemies6 into a land [which] thou knowest1 not: for a fire is kindled1 in mine anger, [which] shall burn93 upon you.
O LORD, thou knowest:1 remember3 me, and visit3 me, and revenge10 me of my persecutors;6 take me not away4 in thy longsuffering: 750 know3 that for thy sake I have suffered2 rebuke.
Thy words were found,8 and I did eat4 them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called8 by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.
I sat1 not in the assembly of the mockers,18 nor rejoiced;4 I sat1 alone because of thy hand: for thou hast filled14 me with indignation.
Why is my pain perpetual, and my wound incurable,7 [which] refuseth14 to be healed?9 wilt thou be altogether unto me as a liar, [and as] waters [that] fail?8
Therefore thus saith1 the LORD, If thou return,4 then will I bring thee again,55 [and] thou shalt stand4 before me: and if thou take forth55 the precious from the vile,6 thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return4 unto thee; but return4 not thou unto them.
And I will make1 thee unto this people a fenced7 brasen wall: and they shall fight8 against thee, but they shall not prevail4 against thee: for I [am] with thee to save53 thee and to deliver53 thee, saith7 the LORD.
And I will deliver52 thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem1 thee out of the hand of the terrible.
