The Lord who commands armies planned it – to dishonor the pride that comes from all her beauty, 1 to humiliate all the dignitaries of the earth.
Do we not all have one father? 1 Did not one God create us? Why do we betray one another, in this way making light of the covenant of our ancestors?
Isn’t this the way your ancestors 1 acted, causing our God to bring on them and on this city all this misfortune? And now you are causing even more wrath on Israel, profaning the Sabbath like this!”
