I will destine you for the sword,4 and you will all bend down for the slaughter;5 for I called but you did not answer,6 I spoke but you did not listen.7 You did evil in my sight and chose what displeases me."8
Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "My servants will eat,9 but you will go hungry;10 my servants will drink,11 but you will go thirsty;12 my servants will rejoice,13 but you will be put to shame.14
Whoever invokes a blessing19 in the land will do so by the God of truth;20 he who takes an oath in the land will swear21 by the God of truth. For the past troubles22 will be forgotten and hidden from my eyes.
