10 “I sent among you a pestilence (A)after the manner of Egypt;
    I killed your young men with the sword,
and (B)carried away your horses,[a]
    and (C)I made the stench of your camp go up into your nostrils;
(D)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.
11 “I overthrew some of you,
    (E)as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
    and you were (F)as a brand[b] plucked out of the burning;
(G)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.
12 “Therefore thus I will do to you, O Israel;
    because I will do this to you,
    prepare to meet your God, O Israel!”
