so two or three cities (A)would wander to another city
    to drink water, and would not be satisfied;
(B)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.

(C)“I struck you with blight and mildew;
    your many gardens and your vineyards,
    your fig trees and your olive trees (D)the locust devoured;
(E)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.

10 “I sent among you a pestilence (F)after the manner of Egypt;
    I killed your young men with the sword,
and (G)carried away your horses,[a]
    and (H)I made the stench of your camp go up into your nostrils;
(I)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.

11 “I overthrew some of you,
    (J)as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
    and you were (K)as a brand[b] plucked out of the burning;
(L)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.

    they have refused to repent.
