17 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
18 Son of man, eat your bread with quaking, and drink your water with trembling and with fearfulness;
19 and tell the people of the land, Thus says the Lord GOD concerning the inhabitants of Yerushalayim, and Eretz-Yisra'el: They shall eat their bread with fearfulness, and drink their water in dismay, that her land may be desolate, [and despoiled] of all that is therein, because of the violence of all those who dwell therein.
20 The cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the land shall be a desolation; and you shall know that I am the LORD.
