10 And turned your festivals into mourning, and all your songs to lamentation; and I brought up sackcloth upon all loins, and upon every head, baldness; and I set it as the mourning of an only one, and its last part as a day of bitterness. 11 Behold, the days coming, says the Lord Jehovah, and I sent famine into the land; not a faniine for bread, and not a thirst for water, but for hearing the words of Jehovah. 12 And they wandered from sea even to sea, and from the north and even to the sunrising, they shall run up and down to seek the word of Jehovah and they shall not find.
