I will cut off nations; their towers will be destroyed; I will devastate their streets. No one will pass through. Their cities will be laid waste. There will be no person, no inhabitant left.
I said, "Surely, she will fear me; she will take instruction so that her habitation won't be cut offa because of everything I did to her." However, they rose early to corrupt their deeds.
Therefore, wait for me, says the LORD, wait for the day when I rise up as a witness,b when I decide to gather nations, to collect kingdoms, to pour out my indignation upon them, all the heat of my anger. In the fire of my jealousy, all the earth will be devoured.
