The LORD spoke his word to me. He said,
"Son of man, shake as you eat your food. Tremble and be worried as you drink your water.
"Tell the people of this land, 'This is what the Almighty LORD says about the people who live in Jerusalem and in the land of Israel: They will be worried as they eat their food and terrified as they drink their water. Their country will be stripped of everything because everyone who lives there is violent.
The cities where people live will be destroyed, and the country will become a wasteland. Then they will know that I am the LORD.'"
