10 (A)Desolate! Desolation and ruin!
    (B)Hearts melt and (C)knees tremble;
(D)anguish is in all loins;
    (E)all faces grow pale!
11 Where is the lions' den,
    the feeding place of (F)the young lions,
where the lion and lioness went,
    where his cubs were, with (G)none to disturb?
12 (H)The lion tore enough for his cubs
    and (I)strangled prey for his lionesses;
he filled his caves with prey
    and his dens with torn flesh.

13 (J)Behold, I am against you, declares the Lord of hosts, and (K)I will burn your[a] chariots in smoke, and the sword shall devour your young lions. I will cut off your prey from the earth, and (L)the voice of your messengers shall no longer be heard.
