When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud;1 then they forgot2 me.37
So I will come upon them like a lion,4 like a leopard I will lurk by the path.
Like a bear robbed of her cubs,5 I will attack them and rip them open. Like a lion6 I will devour them; a wild animal will tear them apart.79
"You are destroyed, O Israel, because you are against me,8 against your helper.910
Where is your king,10 that he may save you? Where are your rulers in all your towns, of whom you said, 'Give me a king and princes'?1111
So in my anger I gave you a king,12 and in my wrath I took him away.13
