"But 1if in spite of this you will not listen to me, but walk contrary to me,
then I will walk contrary to you 2in fury, and I myself will discipline you 3sevenfold for your sins.
4You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters.
And 5I will destroy your high places and cut down your incense altars and 6cast your dead bodies upon the dead bodies of your idols, and my soul will abhor you.
And I will 7lay your cities waste and will 8make your sanctuaries desolate, and 9I will not smell your pleasing aromas.
And 10I myself will devastate the land, so that your enemies who settle in it shall be 11appalled at it.
And 12I will scatter you among the nations, and I will unsheathe the sword after you, and your land shall be a desolation, and your cities shall be a waste.
13"Then the land shall enjoy its Sabbaths as long as it lies desolate, while you are in your enemies' land; then the land shall rest, and enjoy its Sabbaths.
As long as it lies desolate it shall have rest, the rest that it did not have on your Sabbaths when you were dwelling in it.
And as for those of you who are left, 14I will send faintness into their hearts in the lands of their enemies. The 15sound of a 16driven leaf shall put them to flight, and they shall flee as one flees from the sword, and they shall fall when none pursues.
They shall stumble over one another, as if to escape a sword, though none pursues. And 17you shall have no power to stand before your enemies.
And you shall perish among the nations, and the land of your enemies shall eat you up.
And those of you who are left shall 18rot away in your enemies' lands because of their iniquity, and also because of the iniquities of their fathers they shall rot away like them.
"But if 19they confess their iniquity and the iniquity of their fathers in their treachery that they 20committed against me, and also in walking contrary to me,
so that I walked contrary to them and brought them into the land of their enemies--if then their 21uncircumcised heart is 22humbled and they make amends for their iniquity,
then I will 23remember my covenant with Jacob, and I will remember my covenant with Isaac and my covenant with Abraham, and I will 24remember the land.
But 25the land shall be abandoned by them and enjoy its Sabbaths while it lies desolate without them, and they shall make amends for their iniquity, because they spurned my rules and their soul abhorred my statutes.
Yet for all that, when they are in the land of their enemies, 26I will not spurn them, neither will I abhor them so as to destroy them utterly and 27break my covenant with them, for I am the LORD their God.
But I will for their sake remember the covenant with their forefathers, 28whom I brought out of the land of Egypt 29in the sight of the nations, that I might be their God: I am the LORD."
