On that day, says the Lord, a cry will be heard from the Fish Gate, a wail from the Second Quarter, a loud crash from the hills.
The inhabitants of the Mortar wail, for all the traders have perished; all who weigh out silver are cut off.
At that time I will search Jerusalem with lamps, and I will punish the people who rest complacently a on their dregs, those who say in their hearts, "The Lord will not do good, nor will he do harm."
Their wealth shall be plundered, and their houses laid waste. Though they build houses, they shall not inhabit them; though they plant vineyards, they shall not drink wine from them.
