than those slain by hunger,

because the fields lack produce.

but no one gives them any.
This is because they did not meet you with food and water on the journey after you came out of Egypt, and because Balaam son of Beor from Pethor in Aram-naharaim was hired to curse you.

and your wages on what does not satisfy?
Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
and you will enjoy the choicest of foods.
They will consume your harvest and your food.
They will consume your sons and your daughters.
They will consume your flocks and your herds.

before our eyes,

from the house of our God?
?VavAll her splendor has vanished
from Daughter Zion.
Her leaders are like stags
that find no pasture;
they walk away exhausted
before the hunter.
You have planted much

but never have enough to become drunk.
You put on clothes
but never have enough to get warm.

The fields are destroyed;
the land grieves;
indeed, the grain is destroyed;
the new wine is dried up;
and the olive oil fails.
Wake up, you drunkards, and weep;
wail, all you wine drinkers,
because of the sweet wine,
for it has been taken from your mouth.
Joy and celebration are taken from the fertile field
and from the land of Moab.

no one will tread with shouts of joy.

The strong lion dies if it catches no prey,
and the cubs of the lioness are scattered.
Young lions lack food and go hungry,
but those who seek the Lord
will not lack any good thing.
