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].”

13 So this is what the Lord God says:

“My servants will eat,
    but ·you evil people [L you] will be hungry.
My servants will drink,
    but ·you evil people [L you] will be thirsty.
My servants will ·be happy [rejoice],
    but ·you evil people [L you] will be shamed.
