For the house of Israel and the house of Judah have dealt very treacherously against me, saith the LORD.
They have belied the LORD, and said, It is
not he; neither shall evil come upon us; neither shall we see sword nor famine:

not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.
Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
Lo, I will bring a nation upon you from far, O house of Israel, saith the LORD: it is
a mighty nation, it is
an ancient nation, a nation whose language thou knowest not, neither understandest what they say.
