"This is what the LORD says: " 'Your wound1 is incurable, your injury beyond healing.213
There is no one to plead your cause,3 no remedy for your sore, no healing4 for you.
All your allies5 have forgotten you; they care nothing for you. I have struck you as an enemy6 would and punished you as would the cruel,7 because your guilt is so great and your sins8 so many.
Why do you cry out over your wound, your pain that has no cure?9 Because of your great guilt and many sins I have done these things to you.1016
" 'But all who devour11 you will be devoured; all your enemies will go into exile.12 Those who plunder13 you will be plundered; all who make spoil of you I will despoil.
But I will restore you to health and heal14 your wounds,' declares the LORD, 'because you are called an outcast,15 Zion for whom no one cares.'16
