I struck you with blight and mildew;(A)
the locust devoured(B)
your many gardens and vineyards,
your fig trees and olive trees,(C)
yet you did not return to me.(D)
This is the Lord’s declaration.

10 I sent plagues like those of Egypt;(E)
I killed your young men with the sword,(F)
along with your captured horses.(G)
I caused the stench of your camp
to fill your nostrils,(H)
yet you did not return to me.(I)
This is the Lord’s declaration.

11 I overthrew some of you
as I[a] overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,(J)
and you were like a burning stick
snatched from a fire,(K)
yet you did not return to me(L)
This is the Lord’s declaration.
