14 Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of hosts:
“Because they[a] have spoken this word,
behold, I am making my words in your mouth a fire,
    and this people wood, and the fire shall devour them.
15 Behold, I am bringing upon you
    a nation from afar, O house of Israel,
                says the Lord.
It is an enduring nation,
    it is an ancient nation,
a nation whose language you do not know,
    nor can you understand what they say.
16 Their quiver is like an open tomb,
    they are all mighty men.
