·I have not [L Do you think I have…?] come to attack and destroy this country without ·an order from the Lord[L the Lord]. The Lord himself told me to come ·to [against] this country and destroy it [C echoing Isaiah’s prophecy that this is judgment from the Lord].’”
Besides, do you think I’ve come without being sent by the Lord? Have I come to attack and destroy this land without receiving a message from him? The Lord himself told me to march out against your country. He told me to destroy it.” ’ ”
And just in case you think that I’m attacking you of my own volition, you should know that I am not. Your God, the Eternal, sent me. Your God said to me, “Rise up against that land (namely you Judeans), and destroy it.”

(and now have I come against this land without the Lord’s consent, to destroy it? Nay! The Lord himself said to me, Go thou out against this land, and destroy thou it.)
