A Word Of Judgment

23 I will heap misfortunes on them;
I will use My arrows on them.
24 They will be wasted by famine, and consumed by plague
And bitter destruction;
And the teeth of beasts I will send upon them,
With the venom of crawling things of the dust.
25 Outside the sword will bereave,
And inside terror—
Both young man and virgin,
The nursling with the man of gray hair.
