both your sins16 and the sins of your fathers,"17 says the LORD. "Because they burned sacrifices on the mountains and defied me on the hills,18 I will measure into their laps the full payment19 for their former deeds."
This is what the LORD says: "As when juice is still found in a cluster of grapes20 and men say, 'Don't destroy it, there is yet some good in it,' so will I do in behalf of my servants;21 I will not destroy them all.
I will destine you for the sword,33 and you will all bend down for the slaughter;34 for I called but you did not answer,35 I spoke but you did not listen.36 You did evil in my sight and chose what displeases me."37
Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "My servants will eat,38 but you will go hungry;39 my servants will drink,40 but you will go thirsty;41 my servants will rejoice,42 but you will be put to shame.43
Whoever invokes a blessing48 in the land will do so by the God of truth;49 he who takes an oath in the land will swear50 by the God of truth. For the past troubles51 will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes.
