11 I overthrew some of you
as I[a] overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,(A)
and you were like a burning stick
snatched from a fire,(B)
yet you did not return to Me(C)
this is the Lord’s declaration.

12 Therefore, Israel, that is what I will do to you,
and since I will do that to you,
Israel, prepare to meet your God!(D)
13 He is here:
the One who forms the mountains,(E)
creates the wind,(F)
and reveals His[b] thoughts to man,(G)
the One who makes the dawn out of darkness
and strides on the heights of the earth.(H)
Yahweh, the God of Hosts, is His name.(I)
