Woe is me, my mother, that thou hast borne me a man of strife and a man of contention to the whole earth! I have neither lent on usury, nor men have lent to me on usury; yet
every one of them doth curse me.
The LORD said, Verily it shall be well with thy remnant; verily I will cause the enemy to entreat thee well
in the time of evil and in the time of affliction.
Shall iron break the northern iron and the steel?
Thy substance and thy treasures will I give to the spoil without price, and that
for all thy sins, even in all thy borders.
And I will make thee
to pass with thine enemies into a land which
thou knowest not: for a fire is kindled in mine anger, which
shall burn upon you.
