Thus says the Lord:

“As the new wine is found in the cluster,
And one says, ‘Do not destroy it,
For (A)a blessing is in it,’
So will I do for My servants’ sake,
That I may not destroy them (B)all.
I will bring forth descendants from Jacob,
And from Judah an heir of My mountains;
My (C)elect shall inherit it,
And My servants shall dwell there.
10 (D)Sharon shall be a fold of flocks,
And (E)the Valley of Achor a place for herds to lie down,
For My people who have (F)sought Me.

11 “But you are those who forsake the Lord,
Who forget (G)My holy mountain,
Who prepare (H)a table for [a]Gad,
And who furnish a drink offering for [b]Meni.
12 Therefore I will number you for the sword,
And you shall all bow down to the slaughter;
(I)Because, when I called, you did not answer;
When I spoke, you did not hear,
But did evil before My eyes,
And chose that in which I do not delight.”
