Lamenting Jerusalem’s dire circumstances

1 The LORD said to me: Even if Moses and Samuel stood before me, I wouldn't change my mind about these people. Send them away from me. Let them go! 2 And if they say, "Go where?" tell them, This is what the LORD proclaims: Those marked for death—to death, those marked for war—to war, those marked for famine—to famine, and those marked for exile—to exile. 3 I will appoint over them four agentsa of death, declares the LORD: soldiers to kill, dogs to drag off, and vultures and wild animals to devour and destroy. 4 Because of what Judah's King Manasseh, Hezekiah's son, has done in Jerusalem, I will make them an object of horror to all nations on earth. 5 Who will pity you, Jerusalem? Who will shed tears over you? Who will stop and ask how you're doing? 6 You have deserted me, declares the LORD. You have turned your back on me. So I will turn my hand against you and destroy you. I'm tired of holding back.
