Say to them, 'Hear the word of the Sovereign LORD. This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Because you said "Aha!4" over my sanctuary when it was desecrated5 and over the land of Israel when it was laid waste and over the people of Judah when they went into exile,6
therefore I will stretch out my hand14 against you and give you as plunder15 to the nations. I will wipe you out from among the nations and exterminate you from the countries. I will destroy16 you, and you will know that I am the LORD.17' "
