all the sons that she hath brought up. These two things are come unto thee; who shall be
sorry for thee? Desolation, and destruction, and the famine, and the

of trembling, Even the dregs of the cup of my fury; Thou shalt no more drink it again: But I will put it into the hand of them that afflict thee;
