New Living Translation
3 But this is what the Lord says:
“I will reward your evil with evil;
you won’t be able to pull your neck out of the noose.
You will no longer walk around proudly,
for it will be a terrible time.”
4 In that day your enemies will make fun of you
by singing this song of despair about you:
“We are finished,
God has confiscated our land,
taking it from us.
He has given our fields
to those who betrayed us.[a]”
5 Others will set your boundaries then,
and the Lord’s people will have no say
in how the land is divided.
- 2:4 Or to those who took us captive.
