"Surely the eyes of the Sovereign LORD are on the sinful kingdom. I will destroy1 it from the face of the earth-- yet I will not totally destroy the house of Jacob," declares the LORD.2
"For I will give the command, and I will shake the house of Israel among all the nations as grain3 is shaken in a sieve,4 and not a pebble will reach the ground.5
All the sinners among my people will die by the sword,6 all those who say, 'Disaster will not overtake or meet us.'7
