31 “Behold, (A)I am against you, O [a]arrogant one,”
Declares the Lord [b]God of hosts,
“For your day has come,
The time [c]when I will punish you.
32 “The [d](B)arrogant one will stumble and fall
With no one to raise him up;
And I will (C)set fire to his cities
And it will devour all his environs.”

33 Thus says the Lord of hosts,
“The sons of Israel are oppressed,
And the sons of Judah as well;
And (D)all who took them captive have held them fast,
They have refused to let them go.
