“If my land cried out against me 2 and all its furrows wept together,
then I will remove you 1 from my land I have given you, 2 I will abandon this temple I have consecrated with my presence, 3 and I will make you 4 an object of mockery and ridicule 5 among all the nations.
He prayed to the Lord and said, “Oh, Lord, this is just what I thought 1 would happen 2 when I was in my own country. 3 This is what I tried to prevent 4 by attempting to escape to Tarshish! 5 – because I knew 6 that you are gracious and compassionate, slow to anger 7 and abounding 8 in mercy, and one who relents concerning threatened judgment. 9
