Your ox will be slaughtered before your eyes, but you will eat none of it. Your donkey will be forcibly taken from you and will not be returned. Your sheep will be given to your enemies, and no one will rescue them.
Your sons and daughters will be given to another nation,1 and you will wear out your eyes watching for them day after day, powerless to lift a hand.
A people that you do not know will eat what your land and labor produce, and you will have nothing but cruel oppression2 all your days.334
The sights you see will drive you mad.435
The LORD will afflict your knees and legs with painful boils5 that cannot be cured, spreading from the soles of your feet to the top of your head.636
The LORD will drive you and the king7 you set over you to a nation unknown to you or your fathers.8 There you will worship other gods, gods of wood and stone.937
You will become a thing of horror10 and an object of scorn11 and ridicule12 to all the nations where the LORD will drive you.1338
You will sow much seed in the field but you will harvest little,14 because locusts15 will devour16 it.
You will plant vineyards and cultivate them but you will not drink the wine17 or gather the grapes, because worms will eat18 them.1940
You will have olive trees throughout your country but you will not use the oil, because the olives will drop off.2041
You will have sons and daughters but you will not keep them, because they will go into captivity.21
