The people have polluted the earth beneath their feet
    by disobeying laws, violating truth,[a]
    and breaking the ancient, everlasting covenant.[b]
Therefore a curse devours the earth;
    its people suffer under their guilt,
    causing earth’s inhabitants to dwindle,[c]
    and their number is reduced to so few.
The new wine dries up, the vine withers,
    and all the party-goers groan with disappointment.
