Your fugitives will remember me in the nations to which they've been banished, how I was crushed when their roving hearts turned away from me, and their roving eyes went after their idols. They will loathe themselves for their treacherous acts and detestable practices,
and they will know that I am the LORD. Not in vain have I threatened to bring this evil against them.
The LORD God proclaims: Clap your hands, stamp your feet, and cry "Horror" over all the detestable practices of the house of Israel. They will fall by the sword, famine, and plague.
Whoever is far off will die of plague, whoever is nearby will fall to the sword, and whoever finds refuge will die of famine. I'll satisfy my wrath against them!
They will know that I am the LORD when their slain appear among their idols and around their altars, wherever they offered up pleasing aromas for all their idols, on every high hill and mountaintop, and under every lofty tree and leafy oak.
Wherever they live, I will direct my power against them. I will turn the land into a greater wasteland than the Riblah desert. Then they will know that I am the LORD.
