12 your mother shall be utterly shamed,
    and she who bore you shall be disgraced.
Lo, she shall be the last of the nations,
    a wilderness, dry land, and a desert.
13 Because of the wrath of the Lord she shall not be inhabited,
    but shall be an utter desolation;

    all you that bend the bow;
shoot at her, spare no arrows,
    for she has sinned against the Lord.
