10 “I sent plagues among you as I did with Egypt.
    I killed your choicest young men with the sword.
I took your horses away from you.
    I filled your noses with the stench of your encampments,
but you have not returned to me,”
    declares the Lord.

11 “I overthrew your cities,[a]
    as God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
You’ve become like a burning ember, snatched from the fire,
    but you have not returned to me,”
        declares the Lord.

12 “Therefore this is what I will do to you, Israel.
    Because I am about to do this,
        prepare to be summoned to your God, Israel!”
