12 At that time I, the Lord, will search Jerusalem with lamps.
    I will punish those who are settled and satisfied with themselves.

    either good or bad.’(D)
13 Their wealth will be plundered,(E)
    their houses demolished.
Though they build houses,
    they will not live in them;
though they plant vineyards,
    they will not drink the wine.”(F)
