24 all the nations (A)will say, (B)‘Why has the Lord done thus to this land? What caused the heat of this great anger?’ 25 Then people will say, ‘It is because they abandoned the covenant of the Lord, the God of their fathers, which he made with them when he brought them out of the land of Egypt, 26 and went and served other gods and worshiped them, gods whom they had not known and whom he had not allotted to them. 27 Therefore the anger of the Lord was kindled against this land, (C)bringing upon it all the curses written in this book, 28 and the Lord (D)uprooted them from their land in anger and fury and great wrath, and (E)cast them into another land, as they are this day.’

15 All who pass along the way
    clap their hands at you;
(A)they hiss and wag their heads
    at the daughter of Jerusalem:
“Is this the city that was called
    (B)the perfection of beauty,
    (C)the joy of all the earth?”

they hiss, they gnash their teeth,
    they cry: “We (E)have swallowed her!
Ah, this is the day we longed for;
    now we have it; (F)we see it!”

    he has carried out (G)his word,
which he commanded (H)long ago;
    (I)he has thrown down (J)without pity;
(K)he has made the enemy rejoice over you
    and exalted the (L)might of your foes.

20 (A)then I will pluck you[a] up from my land that I have given you, and this house that I have consecrated for my name, I will cast out of my sight, and I will make it (B)a proverb and a byword among all peoples. 21 And at this house, which was exalted, everyone passing by will be astonished and say, (C)‘Why has the Lord done thus to this land and to this house?’ 22 Then they will say, ‘Because they abandoned the Lord, the God of their fathers who brought them out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods and worshiped them and served them. Therefore he has brought all this disaster on them.’”
