go to
Genesis 11:4
And they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city and a tower with its top in the sky. Let us make a name for ourselves; otherwise, we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth."
Genesis 11:7
Come, let Us go down there and confuse their language so that they will not understand one another's speech."
I will take
Isaiah 27:10
For the fortified city will be deserted, pastures abandoned and forsaken like a wilderness. Calves will graze there, and there they will spread out and strip its branches.
Isaiah 27:11
When its branches dry out, they will be broken off. Women will come and make fires with them, for they are not a people with understanding. Therefore their Maker will not have compassion on them, and their Creator will not be gracious to them.
Leviticus 26:31-35
31
I will reduce your cities to ruins and devastate your sanctuaries. I will not smell the pleasing aroma of your [sacrifices].
32
I also will devastate the land, so that your enemies who come to live there will be appalled by it.
33
But I will scatter you among the nations, and I will draw a sword [to chase] after you. So your land will become desolate, and your cities will become ruins.
34
"Then the land will make up for its Sabbath [years] during the time it lies desolate, while you are in the land of your enemies. At that time the land will rest and make up for its Sabbaths.
35
As long as it lies desolate, it will have the rest it did not have during your Sabbaths when you lived there.
Deuteronomy 28:49-52
49
The LORD will bring a nation from far away, from the ends of the earth, to swoop down on you like an eagle, a nation whose language you don't understand,
50
a ruthless nation, showing no respect for the old and not sparing the young.
51
They will eat the offspring of your livestock and your soil's produce until you are destroyed. They will leave you no grain, new wine, oil, young of your herds, or newborn of your flocks until they cause you to perish.
52
They will besiege you within all your gates until your high and fortified walls, that you trust in, come down throughout your land. They will besiege you within all your gates throughout the land the LORD your God has given you.
2 Chronicles 36:4-10
4
Then [Neco] king of Egypt made Jehoahaz's brother Eliakim king over Judah and Jerusalem and changed Eliakim's name to Jehoiakim. But Neco took his brother Jehoahaz and brought him to Egypt.
5
Jehoiakim was 25 years old when he became king; he reigned 11 years in Jerusalem. He did what was evil in the sight of the LORD his God.
6
Now Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon attacked him and bound him in bronze [shackles] to take him to Babylon.
7
Also Nebuchadnezzar took some of the utensils of the LORD's temple to Babylon and put them in his temple in Babylon.
8
The rest of the deeds of Jehoiakim, the detestable things he did, and what was found against him, are written about in the Book of Israel's Kings. His brother Jehoiachin became king in his place.
9
Jehoiachin was 18 years old when he became king; he reigned three months and 10 days in Jerusalem. He did what was evil in the LORD's sight.
10
In the spring Nebuchadnezzar sent [for him] and brought him to Babylon along with the valuable utensils of the LORD's temple. Then he made Jehoiachin's brother Zedekiah king over Judah and Jerusalem.
Nehemiah 2:3
and replied to the king, "May the king live forever! Why should I not be sad when the city where my ancestors are buried lies in ruins and its gates have been destroyed by fire?"
Psalm 74:1-10
1
[A Maskil of Asaph.] Why have You rejected [us] forever, God? Why does Your anger burn against the sheep of Your pasture?
2
Remember Your congregation, which You purchased long ago and redeemed as the tribe for Your own possession. [Remember] Mount Zion where You dwell.
3
Make Your way to the everlasting ruins, to all that the enemy has destroyed in the sanctuary.
4
Your adversaries roared in the meeting place where You met with us. They set up their emblems as signs.
5
It was like men in a thicket of trees, wielding axes,
6
then smashing all the carvings with hatchets and picks.
7
They set Your sanctuary on fire; they utterly desecrated the dwelling place of Your name.
8
They said in their hearts, "Let us oppress them relentlessly." They burned down every place throughout the land where God met with us.
9
We don't see any signs for us. There is no longer a prophet. And none of us knows how long this will last.
10
God, how long will the foe mock? Will the enemy insult Your name forever?
Psalm 80:12-16
12
Why have You broken down its walls so that all who pass by pick its fruit?
13
The boar from the forest gnaws at it, and creatures of the field feed on it.
14
Return, God of Hosts. Look down from heaven and see; take care of this vine,
15
the root Your right hand has planted, the shoot that You made strong for Yourself.
16
It was cut down and burned up; they perish at the rebuke of Your countenance.
Lamentations 1:2-9
2
She weeps aloud during the night, with tears on her cheeks. There is no one to offer her comfort, [not one] from all her lovers. All her friends have betrayed her; they have become her enemies.
3
Judah has gone into exile following affliction and harsh slavery; she lives among the nations but finds no place to rest. All her pursuers have overtaken her in narrow places.
4
The roads to Zion mourn, for no one comes to the appointed festivals. All her gates are deserted; her priests groan, her young women grieve, and she herself is bitter.
5
Her adversaries have become [her] masters; her enemies are at ease, for the LORD has made her suffer because of her many transgressions. Her children have gone away as captives before the adversary.
6
All her splendor has vanished from Daughter Zion. Her leaders are like stags that find no pasture; they walk away exhausted before the hunter.
7
During the days of her affliction and homelessness Jerusalem remembers all her precious belongings that were [hers] in days of old. When her people fell into the adversary's hand, she had no one to help. The adversaries looked at her, laughing over her downfall.
8
Jerusalem has sinned grievously; therefore, she has become an object of scorn. All who honored her [now] despise her, for they have seen her nakedness. She herself groans and turns away.
9
Her uncleanness [stains] her skirts. She never considered her end. Her downfall was astonishing; there was no one to comfort her. LORD, look on my affliction, for the enemy triumphs!
Lamentations 4:12
The kings of the earth and all the world's inhabitants did not believe that an enemy or adversary could enter Jerusalem's gates.
trodden down
Isaiah 10:6
I will send him against a godless nation; I will command him [to go] against a people destined for My rage, to take spoils, to plunder, and to trample them down like clay in the streets.

For the LORD's power will rest on this mountain. But Moab will be trampled in his place as straw is trampled in a dung pile.
Isaiah 28:3
The majestic crown of Ephraim's drunkards will be trampled underfoot.
Isaiah 28:18
Your deal with Death will be dissolved, and your agreement with Sheol will not last. When the overwhelming scourge passes through, you will be trampled.
Lamentations 1:15
The Lord has rejected all the mighty men within me. He has summoned an army against me to crush my young warriors. The Lord has trampled Virgin Daughter Judah [like grapes] in a winepress.
Daniel 8:13
Then I heard a holy one speaking, and another holy one said to the speaker, "How long will [the events of] this vision last-- the daily sacrifice, the rebellion that makes desolate, and the giving over of the sanctuary and of the host to be trampled?"
Luke 21:24
They will fall by the edge of the sword and be led captive into all the nations, and Jerusalem will be trampled by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.
Revelation 11:2
But exclude the courtyard outside the sanctuary. Don't measure it, because it is given to the nations, and they will trample the holy city for 42 months.
