I will destroy her vines and fig trees, about which she said, “These are my wages for prostitution 1 that my lovers gave to me!” I will turn her cultivated vines and fig trees 2 into an uncultivated thicket, so that wild animals 3 will devour them.
Look, at that time I will deal with those who mistreated you. I will rescue the lame sheep 1 and gather together the scattered sheep. I will take away their humiliation and make the whole earth admire and respect them. 2
So I, the Lord, affirm that 1 I will send for all the peoples of the north 2 and my servant, 3 King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon. I will bring them against this land and its inhabitants and all the nations that surround it. I will utterly destroy 4 this land, its inhabitants, and all the nations that surround it 5 and make them everlasting ruins. 6 I will make them objects of horror and hissing scorn. 7
