"Therefore, Oholibah, this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will stir up your lovers1 against you, those you turned away from in disgust, and I will bring them against you from every side2--
the Babylonians3 and all the Chaldeans,4 the men of Pekod5 and Shoa and Koa, and all the Assyrians with them, handsome young men, all of them governors and commanders, chariot officers and men of high rank, all mounted on horses.624
They will come against you with weapons,a chariots and wagons7 and with a throng of people; they will take up positions against you on every side with large and small shields and with helmets. I will turn you over to them for punishment,8 and they will punish you according to their standards.
I will direct my jealous anger9 against you, and they will deal with you in fury. They will cut off your noses and your ears, and those of you who are left will fall by the sword. They will take away your sons and daughters,10 and those of you who are left will be consumed by fire.11
