22 Israel, though your people are many,
like the grains of sand by the sea [48:19; Gen. 15:5; 22:17; Hos. 1:10].
only a ·few [L remnant] of them will ·be left alive to return to the Lord [L return; 7:3].
·God has announced that he will destroy the land [Destruction has been decreed]
·completely and fairly [L overflowing/overwhelming with righteousness/justice].
