"Then the inhabitants of Israel's cities will go out, kindle fires, and burn the weapons-- the bucklers and shields, the bows and arrows, the clubs and spears. For seven years they will use them to make fires.
They will not gather wood from the countryside or cut [it] down from the forests, for they will use the weapons to make fires. They will take the loot from those who looted them and plunder those who plundered them." [This is] the declaration of the Lord God.
