Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "My servants will eat,1 but you will go hungry;2 my servants will drink,3 but you will go thirsty;4 my servants will rejoice,5 but you will be put to shame.614
My servants will sing7 out of the joy of their hearts, but you will cry out8 from anguish of heart and wail in brokenness of spirit.
You will leave your name to my chosen ones as a curse;9 the Sovereign LORD will put you to death, but to his servants he will give another name.1016
Whoever invokes a blessing11 in the land will do so by the God of truth;12 he who takes an oath in the land will swear13 by the God of truth. For the past troubles14 will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes.
