Then they will cry out to the LORD , But He will not answer them. Instead, He will hide His face from them at that time Because they have practiced evil deeds.

Then the remnant of Jacob Will be among many peoples Like dew from the LORD , Like showers on vegetation Which do not wait for man Or delay for the sons of men.
The remnant of Jacob Will be among the nations, Among many peoples Like a lion among the beasts of the forest, Like a young lion among flocks of sheep, Which, if he passes through, Tramples down and tears, And there is none to rescue.
"You will eat, but you will not be satisfied, And your vileness will be in your midst. You will try to remove for safekeeping, But you will not preserve anything, And what you do preserve I will give to the sword.
