"I gave you cleanness of teeth in all your cities, and 1lack of bread in all your places, 2yet you did not return to me," declares the LORD.
"I also 3withheld the rain from you when there were yet three months to the harvest; 4I would send rain on one city, and send no rain on another city; one field would have rain, and the field on which it did not rain would wither;
so two or three cities 5would wander to another city to drink water, and would not be satisfied; 6yet you did not return to me," declares the LORD.
7"I struck you with blight and mildew; your many gardens and your vineyards, your fig trees and your olive trees 8the locust devoured; 9yet you did not return to me," declares the LORD.
"I sent among you a pestilence 10after the manner of Egypt; I killed your young men with the sword, and 11carried away your horses, and 12I made the stench of your camp go up into your nostrils; 13yet you did not return to me," declares the LORD.
"I overthrew some of you, 14as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah, and you were 15as a brand plucked out of the burning; 16yet you did not return to me," declares the LORD.
"Therefore thus I will do to you, O Israel; because I will do this to you, prepare to meet your God, O Israel!"
For behold, 17he who forms the mountains and creates the wind, and 18declares to man what is his thought, 19who makes the morning darkness, and 20treads on the heights of the earth-- 21the LORD, the God of hosts, is his name!
