every place where there were 1,000 vines,
worth 1,000 pieces of silver,
will become thorns and briers. A man will go there with bow and arrows

and for sheep to trample.

Godly people have vanished from the land;
there is no one upright among the people.
All of them wait in ambush to shed blood;
they hunt each other with a net. Both hands are good at accomplishing evil:

when the powerful man communicates his evil desire,
they plot it together. The best of them is like a brier;
the most upright is worse than a hedge of thorns.
The day of your watchmen,
the day of your punishment, is coming;
at this time their panic is here.

growing thorns and briers,
indeed, for every joyous house in the joyful city.
