3 7 And they (hall fall one upon another, as it were before a Sword, when none purfueth: and ye shall have no Power to stand before your Enemies.

38 And ye (hall perish among the Heathen, and the Land of your Enemies (hall eat you up.

39 And they that are left of you, (hall pine away in their Iniquity, in your Enemies Lands; and also in the Iniquities of their Fathers (hall they pine away with them.

40 If they (hall confess their Iniquity, and the Iniquity of their Fathers, with their Trespass which they trespassed against me, and that also they have walked contrary unto me;

41 And that I also have walked contrary unto them, and have brought them into the Land os their Enemies; if then their uncircumciscd Hearts be humbled, and they then accept of the Punishment of their Iniquity:

42 Then will I remember my Covenant with Jacob, and also my Covenant with Isaac, and also my Covenant with Abraham will I remember; and I will remember the Land.

43 The Land also shall be left of them, and shall enjoy her Sabbaths, while (he lieth desolate without them: and they (hall accept of the Punishment of their Iniquity; because, even because they despised my Judgments, and because their Soul abhorred my Statutes.

44 And yet for all that, when they be in the Land of their Enemies, I will not cast them away, neither will I abhor them, to destroy them utterly, and to break my Covenant with them: for I am the Lord their God.

45 But I will for their Sakes remember the Covenant of their Ancestors, whom I brought forth out of the Land of Egypt, in the Sight of the Heathen, that I might be their God: I am the Lord.

46 These are the Statutes, and Judgments, and Laws, which the Lord made between him and the Children of Israel, in Mount Sinai, by the Hand of Moses.
