Four Types of Calamity

1 Then Yahweh said to me, "[Even] if Moses and Samuel stood {before me},a my heart [would] not [be] to this people. Send [them] away from my {sight},b and let them go out. 2 {And then}c if they say to you, 'Where shall we go?' Then you shall say to them, 'Thus says Yahweh, "[Those] who [are destined] for the plague, to the plague, and [those] who [are destined] for the sword, to the sword, and [those] who [are destined] for the famine, to the famine, and [those] who [are destined] for the captivity, to the captivity." ' 3 "And I will summond over them four types of calamity," {declares}e Yahweh, "the sword to kill, and the dogs to drag away, and the birdsf of the air and the wild animalsg of the earth to devour and to destroy. 4 And I will make them a terror to all of the kingdoms of the earth because of Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, the king of Judah, because of what he did in Jerusalem. 5 "For who will have compassion on you, [O] Jerusalem, or who will show sympathy to you, or who will turn aside {to ask about your welfare}?h 6 You have forsaken me," {declares}i Yahweh. "You go backward, so I have stretched my hand against you, and I have destroyed you. I am tired of becoming remorseful. 7 And I have winnowed them with a winnowing fork in the gates of the land. I am bereaved. I have destroyed my people. They did not turn back from their ways. 8 Their widowsj will be more numerous before me than [the] sand of [the] seas. I have brought to them, against [the] mothersk of young men,l a destroyer at noon. I will suddenly drop on her anguish and horror.m 9 She who gave birth to seven has withered away. She gasps her breath. Her sun {set}n while still day. She has been put to shame and disgraced. And the remainder of them I will give to the sword {before}o their enemies," {declares}p Yahweh.
