28 The earth will mourn;
    the sky will grow dark.
The Lord has spoken
    and will not change his mind.
He has made his decision
    and will not turn back.
29 At the noise of the cavalry and archers
    everyone will run away.
Some will run to the forest;
    others will climb up among the rocks.
Every town will be left empty,
    and no one will live in them again.
30 Jerusalem, you are doomed!
    Why do you dress in scarlet?
    Why do you put on jewelry and paint your eyes?
You are making yourself beautiful for nothing!
    Your lovers have rejected you
    and want to kill you.
