Then the LORDsaid to me, "Even 1though2Moses and 3Samuel were to 4standbefore Me, My aheart would not be bwith thispeople ; 5send them away from My presence and let them go !
"And it shall be that when they say to you, 'Where should we go ?' then you are to tell them, 'Thussays the LORD : "Those destined 6for death, to death ; And those destined for the sword, to the sword ; And those destined for famine, to famine ; And those destined for captivity, to captivity."'
"I will 7appointover them fourkinds of doom," declares the LORD : "the sword to slay, the 8dogs to drag off, and the 9birds of the sky and the beasts of the earth to devour and destroy.
"I will 10make them an object of horror among all the kingdoms of the earthbecause of 11Manasseh, the son of Hezekiah, the king of Judah, for what he did in Jerusalem.
5"Indeed, who will have12pity on you, O Jerusalem, Or who will 13mourn for you, Or who will turnaside to ask about your welfare ?
"You who have 14forsaken Me," declares the LORD, "You keep 15goingbackward. So I will 16stretch out My handagainst you and destroy you; I am 17tired of relenting !
"I will 18winnow them with a winnowingfork At the gates of the land ; I will 19bereave them of children, I will destroy My people ; 20They did not crepent of their ways.
