The LORD Almighty has declared in my hearing: "Surely the great houses will become desolate, the fine mansions left without occupants.
In my ears the LORD of hosts has sworn, "Surely, many houses shall become desolate, Even great and fine ones, without occupants.
But the LORD Almighty has sealed your awful fate. With my own ears I heard him say, "Many beautiful homes will stand deserted, the owners dead or gone.
I overheard GOD-of-the-Angel-Armies say: "Those mighty houses will end up empty. Those extravagant estates will be deserted.
The Lord of armies has said to me secretly, Truly, numbers of great and fair houses will be waste, with no one living in them.
The LORD of hosts has sworn in my hearing: Surely many houses shall be desolate, large and beautiful houses, without inhabitant.
In my hearing the LORD of hosts said , "Truly, many houses shall be desolate, Great and beautiful ones, without inhabitant.
