God-of-the-Angel-Armies says so: “I’ll feed them with pig slop. “I’ll give them poison to drink.
therefore the Lord of hosts, God of Israel, saith these things, Lo! I shall feed this people with wormwood, and I shall give to them (to) drink the water of gall (and I shall give them the water of gall to drink).
