12 Of the destruction and building again of Jerusalem.

The burden of the word of the Lord upon [a]Israel, saith the Lord, which spread the heavens, and laid the foundation of the earth, and formed the spirit of man within him.

Behold, I will make Jerusalem a[b]cup of poison unto all the people round about: and also with Judah will he be in the siege against Jerusalem.

And in that day will I make Jerusalem an heavy stone for all people: all that lift it up, shall be torn, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
