14 Therefore, this is what the Lord God of the Heavenly Armies says:

“Because you people[a] have said this,
    my words in your[b] mouth will become a fire
        and these people the wood.
    The fire[c] will destroy them.
15 People of Israel, I’m now bringing
    a nation from far away to attack you,”
        declares the Lord.
“It is an enduring nation,
    an ancient nation,
a nation whose language you don’t know.
    And you won’t understand what they say.
16 Their quiver is like an open grave,
    and all of them are powerful warriors.
