Even if the people are not destroyed,
    Egypt will capture them;
    Memphis[a] will bury them.
Weeds will grow over their silver treasures,
    and thorns will drive them out of their tents.
The time of punishment has come,
    the time to pay for sins.
    Let Israel know this:
You think the prophet is a fool,
    and you say the spiritual person is crazy.
You have sinned very much,
    and your hatred is great.
Is Israel a watchman?
    Are God’s people prophets?
Everywhere Israel goes, traps are set for him.
    He is an enemy in God’s house.
