35 This is what the Lord says,
He who (A)gives the sun for light by day
And the [a]fixed order of the moon and the stars for light by night,
Who (B)stirs up the sea so that its waves roar—
(C)The Lord of armies is His name:
36 (D)If [b]this fixed order departs
From Me,” declares the Lord,
“Then the descendants of Israel also will (E)cease
To be a nation before Me [c]forever.”
37 This is what the Lord says:
(F)If the heavens above can be measured
And the foundations of the earth searched out below,
Then I will also (G)reject all the descendants of Israel
For everything that they have done,” declares the Lord.
