8 “Behold, pthe eyes of the Lord God are on the sinful kingdom,
And I qwill destroy it from the face of the earth;
Yet I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob,”
Says the Lord.
And will 7sift the house of Israel among all nations,
As grain is sifted in a sieve;
sWho say, ‘The calamity shall not overtake nor confront us.’
