11 They’ll make it into a desolate place,
    and, desolate, it will cry out in mourning to me.
The whole land will be desolate
    because no one takes it to heart.
12 On all the barren heights in the desert
    destroyers will come.
Indeed, a sword of the Lord will devour from
    one end of the land to the other.
There will be no peace[a] for any person.[b]
13 They have sown wheat,
    but they have harvested thorns.
They have tired themselves out,
    but they don’t show a profit.
Now be disappointed about your harvest
    because of the fierce anger of the Lord.
