8 But I will spare a few of you, and those who escape My punishing war will be scattered throughout other lands and nations. 9 In the nations where they have been taken as exiles, those who have been spared will remember Me—how I have been wounded by their promiscuous hearts that turned away from Me, how I have been hurt by their wandering eyes that desired lifeless idols.

They will understand I did not utter empty threats when I said I would bring disaster on them.
