24 I have dug wells in foreign countries.
    I have drunk water there.
By the soles of my feet,
    I have dried up all the rivers of Egypt.”

Long ago I planned them.
    Now I have made them happen.
I allowed you to turn those strong, walled cities
    into piles of rocks.
26 The people living in those cities were weak.

    They were like tender, young grass.
They were like grass that grows on the housetop.
    It is burned by the wind before it can grow.
