11 “I overthrew some of you,
    (A)as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
    and you were (B)as a brand[a] plucked out of the burning;
(C)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.
12 “Therefore thus I will do to you, O Israel;
    because I will do this to you,
    prepare to meet your God, O Israel!”
13 For behold, (D)he who forms the mountains and creates the wind,
    and (E)declares to man what is his thought,
(F)who makes the morning darkness,
    and (G)treads on the heights of the earth—
    (H)the Lord, the God of hosts, is his name!
