8 The streets are waste, there walketh no man therein; the covenant is broken, the cities are despised; they are not regarded, 9 the desolate earth is in heaviness. Lebanon taketh it but for a sport, that it is hewn down: Sharon is like a wilderness: Bashan and Carmel are turned upside down. 10 And therefore sayeth the LORD, "I will up; now will I get up, now will I arise.
