16 I have put my words in your mouth
    and have covered you with the shadow of my hand,
so that I could plant the heavens
    and lay the earth’s foundations,
        to say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’

17 “Awake, Awake!
    Stand up, Jerusalem,
you who have drunk from the Lord’s hand
    from the cup that is[a] his anger.
You have drunk to the dregs
    the cup that makes you stagger,[b]
        and have drained it.
18 There is no one to guide you[c]
    out of all the children she bore,
no one to take her by the hand
    out of all the children she brought up.
