I myself will make the land desolate and your enemies who live in it will be appalled.
They will rebuild the perpetual ruins and restore the places that were desolate;
They will be desolate among desolate lands, and their cities will be among ruined cities.
Surely now he
My strength leaves me;
They will say, “This desolate land has become like the garden of Eden; the ruined, desolate, and destroyed cities are now fortified and inhabited.”
Upright men are appalled
People of the west
May their camp become desolate, their tents uninhabited!
For they have devoured Jacob and destroyed his home.
For wild animals
Your altars will be ruined and your incense altars will be broken. I will throw down your slain in front of your idols.
I will strike you brutally
I will lay your cities waste
All the days of the desolation it will have the rest it did not have
We have overpowered them;
May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!” be humiliated
So do not be excessively righteous or excessively
Highways are empty,
