Woe is me for I am ruined[fn]

and live among a people of unclean lips,

and because my eyes have seen the King,

the LORD of Armies.

Keep listening, but do not understand;

understand with their minds,

turn back, and be healed.

Until cities lie in ruins without inhabitants,

houses are without people,

the land is ruined and desolate,

and the LORD drives the people far away,

leaving great emptiness in the land.

Though a tenth will remain in the land,

it will be burned again.

Like the terebinth or the oak

that leaves a stump when felled,

the holy seed is the stump.
