28 The earth will mourn, and the sky will grow black.
    I have spoken, and I have planned it.
        I won’t change my plans, and I won’t turn back.
29 All the people in the city will flee
    at the sound of riders and archers.
        They will go off into the thickets
            and climb among the rocks.
The entire city will be abandoned, and no one will live in it.

30 You are going to be destroyed!
    What are you going to do?
        Why do you dress in red and put on gold jewelry?
        Why do you wear eye shadow?
            You are making yourself beautiful for nothing.
                Your lovers reject you; they want to kill you.
