A people that you do not know will eat what your land and labor produce, and you will have nothing but cruel oppression1 all your days.234
The sights you see will drive you mad.335
The LORD will afflict your knees and legs with painful boils4 that cannot be cured, spreading from the soles of your feet to the top of your head.536
The LORD will drive you and the king6 you set over you to a nation unknown to you or your fathers.7 There you will worship other gods, gods of wood and stone.837
You will become a thing of horror9 and an object of scorn10 and ridicule11 to all the nations where the LORD will drive you.1238
You will sow much seed in the field but you will harvest little,13 because locusts14 will devour15 it.
You will plant vineyards and cultivate them but you will not drink the wine16 or gather the grapes, because worms will eat17 them.1840
You will have olive trees throughout your country but you will not use the oil, because the olives will drop off.1941
You will have sons and daughters but you will not keep them, because they will go into captivity.2042
Swarms of locusts21 will take over all your trees and the crops of your land.
The alien who lives among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower.22
