16 I stretched out[a] the heavens
    and laid the earth's foundations;
I say to Jerusalem, ‘You are my people!
    I have given you my teaching,
    and I protect you with my hand.’”

The End of Jerusalem's Suffering

17 (A)Jerusalem, wake up!
    Rouse yourself and get up!
You have drunk the cup of punishment
    that the Lord in his anger gave you to drink;
    you drank it down, and it made you stagger.
18 There is no one to lead you,
    no one among your people
    to take you by the hand.
