(A)“I struck you with blight and mildew;
    your many gardens and your vineyards,
    your fig trees and your olive trees (B)the locust devoured;
(C)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.

10 “I sent among you a pestilence (D)after the manner of Egypt;
    I killed your young men with the sword,
and (E)carried away your horses,[a]
    and (F)I made the stench of your camp go up into your nostrils;
(G)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.

11 “I overthrew some of you,
    (H)as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah,
    and you were (I)as a brand[b] plucked out of the burning;
(J)yet you did not return to me,”
declares the Lord.
