11 Where is the lions’ lair,(A)
or the feeding ground of the young lions,
where the lion and lioness prowled,
and the lion’s cub,
with nothing to frighten them away?(B)
12 The lion mauled whatever its cubs needed
and strangled prey for its lionesses.
It filled up its dens with the kill,
and its lairs with mauled prey.(C)
13 Beware, I am against you.(D)
This is the declaration of the Lord of Armies.
I will make your chariots go up in smoke,[a]
and the sword will devour your young lions.(E)
I will cut off your prey from the earth,
and the sound of your messengers
will never be heard again.(F)
