and with a strong arm, even in anger, and in fury, and in great wrath.
JER 21:6 And I will smite the inhabitants of this city, both man and
beast: they shall die of a great pestilence.
JER 21:7 And afterward, saith the LORD, I will deliver Zedekiah king of
Judah, and his servants, and the people, and such as are left in this
city from the pestilence, from the sword, and from the famine, into the
hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, and into the hand of their
enemies, and into the hand of those that seek their life: and he shall
smite them with the edge of the sword; he shall not spare them, neither
have pity, nor have mercy.
