12 Until the Lord sends the people far away,
    and great is the desolation in the midst of the land.
13 If there remain a tenth part in it,
    then this in turn shall be laid waste;
As with a terebinth or an oak
    whose trunk remains when its leaves have fallen.[a](A)
    Holy offspring is the trunk.

Footnotes

  1. 6:13 When its leaves have fallen: the meaning of the Hebrew is uncertain, and the text may be corrupt. Holy offspring: part of the phrase is missing from the Septuagint and may be a later addition; it provides a basis for hope for the future.
