But would not be satisfied;

Your many gardens and vineyards, fig trees and olive trees;

And you were like a firebrand snatched from a blaze;

Because I will do this to you,
Prepare to meet your God, O Israel.”

And declares to man what are His thoughts,
He who makes dawn into darkness
And treads on the high places of the earth,
The LORD God of hosts is His name.
