Deuteronomy 31:17-18

Context
31:17 At that time 1  my anger will erupt against them 2  and I will abandon them and hide my face from them until they are devoured. Many disasters and distresses will overcome 3  them 4  so that they 5  will say at that time, ‘Have not these disasters 6  overcome us 7  because our 8  God is not among us 9 ?’ 31:18 But I will certainly 10  hide myself at that time because of all the wickedness they 11  will have done by turning to other gods.
