I will bring you into the desert1 of the nations and there, face to face, I will execute judgment2 upon you.
As I judged your fathers in the desert of the land of Egypt, so I will judge you, declares the Sovereign LORD.337
I will take note of you as you pass under my rod,4 and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant.538
I will purge6 you of those who revolt and rebel against me. Although I will bring them out of the land where they are living, yet they will not enter the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD.7
