You will eat1 the flesh of your sons and the flesh of your daughters.230
I will destroy your high places,3 cut down your incense altars4 and pile your dead bodies on the lifeless forms of your idols,5 and I will abhor6 you.
I will turn your cities into ruins7 and lay waste8 your sanctuaries,9 and I will take no delight in the pleasing aroma of your offerings.1032
I will lay waste the land,11 so that your enemies who live there will be appalled.1233
I will scatter13 you among the nations14 and will draw out my sword15 and pursue you. Your land will be laid waste,16 and your cities will lie in ruins.1734
Then the land will enjoy its sabbath years all the time that it lies desolate18 and you are in the country of your enemies;19 then the land will rest and enjoy its sabbaths.
All the time that it lies desolate, the land will have the rest20 it did not have during the sabbaths you lived in it.
" 'As for those of you who are left, I will make their hearts so fearful in the lands of their enemies that the sound of a windblown leaf21 will put them to flight.22 They will run as though fleeing from the sword, and they will fall, even though no one is pursuing them.2337
They will stumble over one another24 as though fleeing from the sword, even though no one is pursuing them. So you will not be able to stand before your enemies.2538
You will perish26 among the nations; the land of your enemies will devour you.2739
Those of you who are left will waste away in the lands of their enemies because of their sins; also because of their fathers'28 sins they will waste away.29
