24 they and indeed all the nations will wonder, “Why has the Lord done thus to this land?

15 All who pass along the way
    clap their hands at you;
they hiss and wag their heads
    at daughter Jerusalem;
“Is this the city that was called

he has made the enemy rejoice over you,
    and exalted the might of your foes.
