See, today I have set you over nations and kingdoms to uproot and tear down, to destroy and demolish, to build and plant.
For I have turned against this city to [bring] disaster and not good""-- [this is] the LORD's declaration. "'It will be handed over to the king of Babylon, who will burn it down.'
Just as I watched over them to uproot and to tear them down, to demolish and to destroy, and to cause disaster, so will I be attentive to build and to plant them," says the LORD.
An end has come; the end has come! It has awakened against you. Look, it is coming!
And I will take away the remnant of Judah, those who have resolved to go to the land of Egypt to live there for a while; they will meet their end. All of them in the land of Egypt will fall by the sword; they will meet their end by famine. From the least to the greatest, they will die by the sword and by famine. Then they will become an object of execration, of scorn, of cursing, and of disgrace.
but from the time we ceased to burn incense to the queen of heaven and to offer her drink offerings, we have lacked everything, and through sword and famine we have met our end."
I will abandon the remnant of My inheritance and hand them over to their enemies. They will become plunder and spoil to all their enemies,
