11 “I overthrew some of you,
As God overthrew (A)Sodom and Gomorrah,
And you were like a firebrand plucked from the burning;
Yet you have not returned to Me,”
Says the Lord.

12 “Therefore thus will I do to you, O Israel;
Because I will do this to you,
(B)Prepare to meet your God, O Israel!”

13 For behold,
He who forms mountains,
And creates the [a]wind,
(C)Who declares to man what [b]his thought is,
And makes the morning darkness,
(D)Who treads the high places of the earth—
(E)The Lord God of hosts is His name.
