But I will execute judgment on the nation that they will serve. 1 Afterward they will come out with many possessions.
When the time for them to be rescued comes,” 1 says the Lord who rules over all, 2 “I will rescue you from foreign subjugation. 3 I will deliver you from captivity. 4 Foreigners will then no longer subjugate them.
After they have been destroyed from your presence, be careful not to be ensnared like they are; do not pursue their gods and say, “How do these nations serve their gods? I will do the same.”
But suppose a nation or a kingdom will not be subject to King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. Suppose it will not submit to the yoke of servitude to 1 him. I, the Lord, affirm that 2 I will punish that nation. I will use the king of Babylon to punish it 3 with war, 4 starvation, and disease until I have destroyed it. 5
