The Lord God has promised this: “It is certain that I am a holy God. So it is certain that the time will come when some of you will be taken away by hooks. The rest of you will be taken away with fishhooks.
“This is serious—I, God, have sworn by my holiness! Be well warned: Judgment Day is coming! They’re going to rope you up and haul you off, keep the stragglers in line with cattle prods. They’ll drag you through the ruined city walls, forcing you out single file, And kick you to kingdom come.” God’s Decree.
The Lord and King has made a promise by his own holy name. He says, “You can be sure that the time will come when your enemies will put hooks in your faces. They will lead every one of you away with fishhooks.
The Eternal Lord has made a vow by His own holiness: Eternal One: The day will come when your enemy will drag you away with hooks like sides of beef—will subdue you with fishhooks, each and every one of you.
The Lord God swore in his holy (place), for lo! days shall come on you; and they shall raise you in shafts, and your remnants in boiling pots. (The Lord God swore by his holiness, for lo! days shall come upon you; and then they shall raise you up with shafts, and shall put your remnants into boiling pots.)
