“We looked for peace, but no good came: and for a time of health, and behold trouble.”
King James Version (KJV)
12. Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore shall they fall among them that fal, in the time of their visitation they shall be cast downe, saith the Lord. 13. ¶ I will surely consume them, saith the Lord; there shalbe no grapes on the vine, nor figges on the figtree, and the leafe shall fade, and the things that I haue giuen them, shall passe away from them. 14. Why doe wee sit still? assemble your selues, and let vs enter into the defenced cities, and let vs be silent there: for the Lord our God hath put vs to silence, and giuen vs waters of gall to drink, because we haue sinned against the Lord. 15. We looked for peace, but no good came: and for a time of health, and behold trouble. 16. The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan: the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones, for they are come and haue deuoured the land, and all that is in it, the citie, and those that dwell therein. 17. For behold, I wil send serpents, cockatrices among you, which will not be charmed, and they shall bite you; saith the Lord. 18. ¶ When I would comfort my selfe against sorrow, my heart is faint in me.
