Therefore, the Lord says:

I am now planning(A) a disaster
against this nation;(B)
you cannot free your necks from it.(C)
Then you will not walk so proudly(D)
because it will be an evil time.(E)
In that day one will take up(F) a taunt against you
and lament mournfully,(G) saying,
“We are totally ruined!(H)
He measures out the allotted land of my people.
How he removes it from me!
He allots our fields(I) to traitors.”
Therefore, there will be no one
in the assembly of the Lord
to divide the land by casting lots.[a](J)
