God's Discipline and Israel's Apostasy

6 I gave you absolutely nothing to eata in all your cities, a shortage of food in all your communities, yet you did not return to Me- the Lord's declaration. 7 I also withheld the rain from youb while there were still three months until harvest. I sent rain on one city but no rain on another. One field received rain while a field with no rain withered.c 8 Two or three cities staggered to another city to drink water but were not satisfied, yet you did not return to Me- the Lord's declaration. 9 I struck you with blight and mildew;d the locust devoured your many gardens and vineyards, your fig trees and olive trees,e yet you did not return to Me- the Lord's declaration. 10 I sent plagues like those of Egypt;f I killed your young men with the sword, along with your captured horses. I caused the stench of your camp to fill your nostrils,g yet you did not return to Me- the Lord's declaration. 11 I overthrew some of you as Ih overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,i and you were like a burning stick snatched from a fire,j yet you did not return to Me- the Lord's declaration.
