JER 29:17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them
the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile
figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
JER 29:18 And I will persecute them with the sword, with the famine,
and with the pestilence, and will deliver them to be removed to all the
kingdoms of the earth, to be a curse, and an astonishment, and an
hissing, and a reproach, among all the nations whither I have driven
JER 29:19 Because they have not hearkened to my words, saith the LORD,
which I sent unto them by my servants the prophets, rising up early and
sending them; but ye would not hear, saith the LORD.
