Therefore this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I am going to bring such disaster1 on Jerusalem and Judah that the ears of everyone who hears of it will tingle.213
I will stretch out over Jerusalem the measuring line used against Samaria and the plumb line3 used against the house of Ahab. I will wipe4 out Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.
I will forsake5 the remnant6 of my inheritance and give them into the hands of enemies. They will be looted and plundered by all their enemies;
they have done evil7 in my eyes and have aroused8 my anger from the day their ancestors came out of Egypt until this day."
