Context Readings

The Lord's Reply

11 They have made it a desolation. It mourns to me, being desolate. The whole land is made desolate, because no man lays it to heart. 12 Destroyers have come upon all the bare heights in the wilderness. For the sword of LORD devours from the one end of the land even to the other end of the land. No flesh has peace. 13 They have sown wheat, and have reaped thorns. They have put themselves to pain, and profit nothing. And ye shall be ashamed of your fruits, because of the fierce anger of LORD.
