I will scatter1 you among the nations2 and will draw out my sword3 and pursue you. Your land will be laid waste,4 and your cities will lie in ruins.534
Then the land will enjoy its sabbath years all the time that it lies desolate6 and you are in the country of your enemies;7 then the land will rest and enjoy its sabbaths.
All the time that it lies desolate, the land will have the rest8 it did not have during the sabbaths you lived in it.
" 'As for those of you who are left, I will make their hearts so fearful in the lands of their enemies that the sound of a windblown leaf9 will put them to flight.10 They will run as though fleeing from the sword, and they will fall, even though no one is pursuing them.1137
They will stumble over one another12 as though fleeing from the sword, even though no one is pursuing them. So you will not be able to stand before your enemies.1338
You will perish14 among the nations; the land of your enemies will devour you.1539
Those of you who are left will waste away in the lands of their enemies because of their sins; also because of their fathers'16 sins they will waste away.17
