16 Now hear the word of the Lord. You say:

Do not prophesy(A) against Israel;
do not preach(B) against the house of Isaac.

17 Therefore, this is what the Lord says:

Your wife will be a prostitute in the city,(C)
your sons and daughters will fall by the sword,(D)
and your land will be divided up
with a measuring line.
You yourself will die on pagan[a] soil,(E)
and Israel will certainly go into exile(F)
from its homeland.
