English Standard Version
6 (C)“I have cut off nations;
their battlements are in ruins;
I have laid waste their streets
(D)so that no one walks in them;
their cities have been made desolate,
without a man, without an inhabitant.
7 (E)I said, ‘Surely you will fear me;
(F)you will accept correction.
Then your[a] dwelling would not be cut off
according to all that I have appointed against you.’[b]
But (G)all the more they were eager
to make all their deeds corrupt.
