10 “For the (A)mountains I will take up a weeping and wailing,
And for the pastures of the (B)wilderness a dirge,
Because they are (C)laid waste so that no one passes through,
And the lowing of the cattle is not heard;
Both the (D)birds of the sky and the beasts have fled; they are gone.
11 “I will make Jerusalem a (E)heap of ruins,
A haunt of (F)jackals;
And I will make the cities of Judah a (G)desolation, without inhabitant.”

“I will remove (A)man and beast;
I will remove the (B)birds of the sky
And the fish of the sea,
And the [a](C)ruins along with the wicked;
And I will cut off man from the face of the [b]earth,” declares the Lord.
