16 I have put My words in your mouth,(A)
and covered you in the shadow of My hand,(B)
in order to plant[a] the heavens,
to found the earth,
and to say to Zion, “You are My people.”

17 Wake yourself, wake yourself up!
Stand up, Jerusalem,
you who have drunk the cup of His fury(C)
from the hand of the Lord;
you who have drunk the goblet to the dregs—
the cup that causes people to stagger.
18 There is no one to guide her
among all the children she has raised;
there is no one to take hold of her hand
among all the offspring she has brought up.
