Your sons and your daughters will be given to another people, and your eyes will be wasted away with looking and weeping for them all the day: and you will have no power to do anything.
The fruit of your land and all the work of your hands will be food for a nation which is strange to you and to your fathers; you will only be crushed down and kept under for ever:
So that the things which your eyes have to see will send you out of your minds.
The Lord will send a skin disease, attacking your knees and your legs, bursting out from your feet to the top of your head, so that nothing will make you well.
And you, and the king whom you have put over you, will the Lord take away to a nation strange to you and to your fathers; there you will be servants to other gods of wood and stone.
And you will become a wonder and a name of shame among all the nations where the Lord will take you.
You will take much seed out into the field, and get little in; for the locust will get it.
You will put in vines and take care of them, but you will get no wine or grapes from them; for they will be food for worms.
Your land will be full of olive-trees, but there will be no oil for the comfort of your body; for your olive-tree will give no fruit.
You will have sons and daughters, but they will not be yours; for they will go away prisoners into a strange land.
All your trees and the fruit of your land will be the locust's.
