Yahweh's Judgment And Help

8 The highways lay waste, the traveler passing by, ceased: he brake the covenant, he despised the cities, he reckoned them not men. 9 The earth mourning, languished: Lebanon being ashamed, pined away: Sharon was as a sterile region, and Bashan was shaken, and Carmel. 10 Now will I rise, Jehovah will say; now will I be exalted; now will I be lifted up.
