For now must thou get thee out of the city, and dwell upon the plain field: Yea, unto Babylon shalt thou go, there shalt thou be delivered, and there the LORD shall loose thee from the hand of thine enemies. 11 Now also are there many people gathered together against thee, saying that Zion is cursed: "We shall see our lust upon her."
