"Can a virgin forget her ornaments, or a bride her attire? Yet my people have forgotten me for days without number.
So are the paths of all who forget God. The hope of the godless man shall perish,
The wicked shall be turned back to Sheol, even all the nations that forget God.
"Now consider this, you who forget God, lest I tear you into pieces, and there be none to deliver.
For you have forgotten the God of your salvation, and have not remembered the rock of your strength. Therefore you plant pleasant plants, and set out foreign seedlings.
For Israel has forgotten his Maker and built palaces; and Judah has multiplied fortified cities; but I will send a fire on his cities, and it will devour its fortresses."
Because of your raging against me, and because your arrogance has come up into my ears, therefore will I put my hook in your nose, and my bridle in your lips, and I will turn you back by the way by which you came."
As for your terror, the pride of your heart has deceived you, O you who dwell in the clefts of the rock, who hold the height of the hill: though you should make your nest as high as the eagle, I will bring you down from there, says Yahweh.
Though they dig into Sheol, there my hand will take them; and though they climb up to heaven, there I will bring them down.
Let them be disappointed and confounded together who rejoice at my calamity. Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor who magnify themselves against me.
I will punish the world for their evil, and the wicked for their iniquity. I will cause the arrogance of the proud to cease, and will humble the haughtiness of the terrible.
I will thrust you from your office. You will be pulled down from your station.
He will spread out his hands in its midst, like one who swims spreads out hands to swim, but his pride will be humbled together with the craft of his hands.
For he has brought down those who dwell on high, the lofty city. He lays it low. He lays it low even to the ground. He brings it even to the dust.
and I will bring an everlasting reproach on you, and a perpetual shame, which shall not be forgotten.
They shall bring you down to the pit; and you shall die the death of those who are slain, in the heart of the seas.
Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh: "An adversary will overrun the land; and he will pull down your strongholds, and your fortresses will be plundered."
