“I afflicted you with blight and fungus;
    and the locust swarm devoured the harvest
        of your gardens, your vineyards, your fig trees, and your olive trees,
    but you have not returned to me,”
        declares the Lord.

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.
