4 'Thus says the LORD God of Israel, "Behold, I am about to turn back the weapons of war which are in your hands, with which you are warring against the king of Babylon and the Chaldeans who are besieging you outside the wall; and I will gather them into the center of this city. 4 'This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I am about to turn against you the weapons of war that are in your hands, which you are using to fight the king of Babylon and the Babylonians who are outside the wall besieging you. And I will gather them inside this city.
5 "I Myself will war against you with an outstretched hand and a mighty arm, even in anger and wrath and great indignation. 5 I myself will fight against you with an outstretched hand and a mighty arm in anger and fury and great wrath.
6 "I will also strike down the inhabitants of this city, both man and beast; they will die of a great pestilence. 6 I will strike down those who live in this city--both men and animals--and they will die of a terrible plague.
