9 Why would you be like a wandering man, like a strong man who is unable to save? But you, O Lord, are with us, and your name is invoked over us, so do not abandon us!'
10 Thus says the Lord to this people, who have loved to move their feet, and who have not rested, but who have not pleased the Lord: 'Now he will remember their iniquities, and now he will visit against their sins.'
11 And the Lord said to me: 'Do not choose to pray for this people for good.
12 When they will fast, I will not heed their petitions. And if they offer holocausts and victims, I will not accept them. For I will consume them by the sword, and by famine, and by pestilence.'
13 And I said: 'Alas, alas, alas, O Lord God! The prophets are saying to them: 'You will not see the sword, and there will be no famine among you. Instead, he will give you true peace in this place.'
