Pray now, consider what will come to pass from this day onward. Before a stone was placed upon a stone in the temple of the LORD,
how did you fare? When one came to a heap of twenty measures, there were but ten; when one came to the winevat to draw fifty measures, there were but twenty.
I smote you and all the products of your toil with blight and mildew and hail; yet you did not return to me, says the LORD.
