Then the word of the LORD came to me:
"You must not marry1 and have sons or daughters in this place."
For this is what the LORD says about the sons and daughters born in this land and about the women who are their mothers and the men who are their fathers:24
"They will die of deadly diseases. They will not be mourned or buried3 but will be like refuse lying on the ground.4 They will perish by sword and famine,5 and their dead bodies will become food for the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth."6
