For HaShem of hosts, that planted thee, hath pronounced evil against thee, because of the evil of the house of Israel and of the house of Judah, which they have wrought for themselves in provoking Me by offering unto Baal.
And HaShem gave me knowledge of it, and I knew it; then Thou showedst me their doings.
But I was like a docile lamb that is led to the slaughter; and I knew not that they had devised devices against me: 'Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living, that his name may be no more remembered.'
But, O HaShem of hosts, that judgest righteously, that triest the reins and the heart, let me see Thy vengeance on them; for unto Thee have I revealed my cause.
Therefore thus saith HaShem concerning the men of Anathoth, that seek thy life, saying: 'Thou shalt not prophesy in the name of HaShem, that thou die not by our hand';
therefore thus saith HaShem of hosts: Behold, I will punish them; the young men shall die by the sword, their sons and their daughters shall die by famine;
And there shall be no remnant unto them; for I will bring evil upon the men of Anathoth, even the year of their visitation.
