Jeremiah 5:18–19

M S
G
V

18  But even in those days, saith YHWH, I will not make a full end with you.

18  And it shall come to pass in those days, saith the Lord thy God, that I will not utterly destroy you.

18  Yet truly, in those days, says the Lord, I will not bring the consummation over you.

M G S
V

19  And it shall come to pass, when ye shall say: 'Wherefore hath YHWH our God done all these things unto us?' then shalt Thou say unto them: 'Like as ye have forsaken Me, and served strange gods in your land, so shall ye serve strangers in a land that is not yours.'

19  And if they say, ‘Why has the Lord our God done all these things to us?’ You shall say to them: ‘Just as you have abandoned me and have served a strange god in your own land, so will you serve strangers in a land not your own.’
