And I will slay fthe last of them with the sword:
gHe that fleeth of them shall not flee away,
3 And though they hide themselves in mthe top of Carmel,
nI will search and take them out thence;
And ithough they be hid from my sight in the bottom of the sea,
Thence will I command the serpent, and ohe shall bite them:
pThence will I command the sword, and it shall slay them:
5 And the Lord God of hosts is he that toucheth the land, and sit shall melt,
tAnd all that dwell therein shall mourn:
tAnd it shall rise up wholly like a flood;
xHe that calleth for the waters of the sea,
xAnd poureth them out upon the face of the earth:
Have not I brought up Israel out of the land of Egypt?
8 Behold, ethe eyes of the Lord God are upon the sinful kingdom,
And I will destroy it from off the face of the earth;
fSaving that I will not utterly destroy the house of Jacob, saith the Lord.
And †close up the breaches thereof;
And I will raise up his ruins,
And I will build it as in the days of old:
†Which are called by my name,
Saith the Lord that doeth this.
13 qBehold, the days come, saith the Lord,
That rthe plowman shall overtake the reaper,
14 And wI will bring again the captivity of my people of Israel,
They shall also make gardens, and eat the fruit of them.
15 And aI will plant them upon their land,
Saith the Lord thy God.
