I will fiercely resist you. I will discipline you seven times for your sins.
You will eat the bodies of your sons and daughters.
I will destroy your worship sites, cut down your incense altars, and pile your dead bodies on top of your dead idols. I will look at you with disgust.
I will make your cities deserted and ruin your sacred places. I will no longer accept the soothing aroma from your sacrifices.
I will make your land so deserted that your enemies will be shocked as they settle in it.
I will scatter you among the nations. War will follow you. Your country will be in ruins. Your cities will be deserted.
"Then the land will enjoy its time [to honor the LORD] while it lies deserted and you are in your enemies' land. Then the land will joyfully celebrate its time [to honor the LORD].
All the days it lies deserted, it will celebrate the time [to honor the LORD] it never celebrated while you lived there.
I will fill with despair those who are left in the land of their enemies. The sound of a windblown leaf will make them run. They will run away and fall, but no one will be chasing them.
They will stumble over each other, but no one will be after them. They will not be able to stand up to their enemies.
They will be destroyed among the nations. The land of their enemies will devour them.
