You who were as numerous as the stars in the sky will be left but few in number, because you did not obey the LORD your God.
"Then you shall be left few in number, whereas you were as numerous as the stars of heaven, because you did not obey the LORD your God.
Though you are as numerous as the stars in the sky, few of you will be left because you would not listen to the LORD your God.
Because you didn't listen obediently to the Voice of GOD, your God, you'll be left with a few pitiful stragglers in place of the dazzling stars-in-the-heavens multitude you had become.
And you will become a very small band, though your numbers were like the stars of heaven; because you did not give ear to the voice of the Lord your God.
Although once you were as numerous as the stars in heaven, you shall be left few in number, because you did not obey the LORD your God.
"You shall be left few in number, whereas you were as the stars of heaven in multitude, because you would not obey the voice of the LORD your God.
