God's Answer

I cut down its tallest cedars, the choicest of its pines; I reached its remotest heights, the most verdant of its forests. 25 I myself dug wells and drank foreign waters; with the soles of my feet I dried up all the streams of Egypt." 26 ""Didn't you hear how in the distant past I decided to do it, how I planned from days of old? Now I've made it happen that fortified cities become devastated, besieged heaps.
