A third of your people will die of the plague or perish by famine inside you; a third will fall by the sword outside your walls; and a third I will scatter to the winds1 and pursue with drawn sword.213
"Then my anger will cease and my wrath3 against them will subside, and I will be avenged.4 And when I have spent my wrath upon them, they will know that I the LORD have spoken in my zeal.514
"I will make you a ruin and a reproach among the nations around you, in the sight of all who pass by.615
You will be a reproach7 and a taunt, a warning8 and an object of horror to the nations around you when I inflict punishment on you in anger and in wrath and with stinging rebuke.9 I the LORD have spoken.1016
When I shoot at you with my deadly and destructive arrows of famine, I will shoot to destroy you. I will bring more and more famine upon you and cut off your supply of food.1117
I will send famine and wild beasts12 against you, and they will leave you childless. Plague and bloodshed13 will sweep through you, and I will bring the sword against you. I the LORD have spoken.14"
