I struck your crops with blight and mildew.
    Locusts repeatedly devoured your gardens, vineyards,
        fig trees, and olive trees.
And you still didn’t return to me, declares the Lord.

10 I sent plagues on you as I did to Egypt.
With swords I killed your best young men along with your captured horses.
I made the stench from your camps fill your noses.
And you still didn’t return to me, declares the Lord.

11 I destroyed some of you as I destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah.
    You were like a burning log snatched from a fire.
And you still didn’t return to me, declares the Lord.
