Chapter 2

9 'Yet it was I who destroyed the Amorite before them, Though his height was like the height of cedars And he was as strong as the oaks; I also destroyed his fruit above and his roots below. 10 And it was I who brought you up from the land of Egypt, And led you in the wilderness for forty years So that you might take possession of the land of the Amorite. 11 Then I raised up some of your sons to be prophets, And some of your young men to be Nazirites. Is this not so, you sons of Israel?' declares the LORD.

Is it not even thus, O ye children of Israel? saith the LORD.

Can you deny this, my people of Israel?' asks the LORD.
