" 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Strike your hands together and stamp your feet and cry out "Alas!" because of all the wicked and detestable practices of the house of Israel, for they will fall by the sword, famine and plague.112
He that is far away will die of the plague, and he that is near will fall by the sword, and he that survives and is spared will die of famine. So will I spend my wrath2 upon them.313
And they will know that I am the LORD, when their people lie slain among their idols4 around their altars, on every high hill and on all the mountaintops, under every spreading tree and every leafy oak5--places where they offered fragrant incense to all their idols.614
And I will stretch out my hand7 against them and make the land a desolate waste from the desert to Diblaha--wherever they live. Then they will know that I am the LORD.8' "
