10 Then ·the Plain of Sharon [L Sharon; C a fertile plain in western Israel; 33:9] will be a field for flocks,
    and the Valley of Achor [C located in eastern Israel, near Jericho] will be a place for herds to rest.
They will be for the people who ·want to follow [have sought] me.

11 “But as for you who ·left [abandoned; forsook] the Lord,
    who forgot about my holy mountain,
who ·worship the god Luck [L spread a table for Fortune/Luck; C Hebrew Gad, a pagan god],
    ·who hold religious feasts for the god Fate [L fill bowls of mixed wine for Fate; C Hebrew Meni, a pagan god],
12 I ·decide your fate, and I will punish you with my sword [L destine/number you for the sword].
    You will all ·be killed [fall in the slaughter; or bow to the executioner],
because I called you, but you refused to answer.
    I spoke to you, but you wouldn’t listen.
You did ·the things I said were evil [L evil before my eyes]
    and chose to do things ·that displease me [L I did not delight in].”
