GOD’S WORD Translation
19 The cities in the Negev will be locked up,
and there will be no one to reopen them.
All the people of Judah will be taken away into captivity.
20 Look up, and see those who are coming from the north.
Where is the flock that was given to you—your beautiful sheep?
21 What will you say
when God makes the people you thought were your friends
your new masters?
Won’t pain grip you like a woman in labor?
