Then the Lord will scatter you among all peoples from one end of the earth to the other, and there you will worship other gods of wood and stone, which neither you nor your fathers have known.
You will find no peace among those nations, and there will be no resting place for the sole of your foot. There the Lord will give you a trembling heart, failing eyes, and a despondent spirit.
Your life will hang in doubt before you. You will be in dread night and day, never certain of survival.
In the morning you will say, 'If only it were evening!' and in the evening you will say, 'If only it were morning!'-because of the dread you will have in your heart and because of what you will see.
The Lord will take you back in ships to Egypt by a route that I said you would never see again.a There you will sell yourselves to your enemies as male and female slaves, but no one will buy [you]."
