A (17) Ah LORD Yahweh! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee:
B (18, 19) Thou shewest lovingkindness unto thousands, and recompensest the iniquity of the fathers into the bosom of their children after them: the Great, the Mighty God, Yahweh of hosts, is his name, Great in counsel, and mighty in work: for thine eyes are open upon all the ways of the sons of men: TO GIVE every one according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings:
C (20) Which hast set SIGNS AND WONDERS
D (20) in the land OF EGYPT, even unto this day,
E (20) and in ISRAEL, and among other men;
F (20) and hast made thee a name, as at this day;
E1 (21) And hast brought forth thy people ISRAEL
D1 (21) out of the land OF EGYPT
C1 (21) with SIGNS, AND WITH WONDERS, and with a strong hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with great terror;
B1 (22-24) And HAST GIVEN them this land, which thou didst swear to their fathers TO GIVE them, a land flowing with milk and honey; And they came in, and possessed it; but they obeyed not thy voice, neither walked in thy law; they have done nothing of all that thou commandedst them to do: therefore thou hast caused all this evil to come upon them: Behold the mounts, they are come unto the city to take it; and the city IS GIVEN into the hand of the Chaldeans, that fight against it, because of the sword, and of the famine, and of the pestilence: and what thou hast spoken is come to pass; and, behold, thou seest it.
A1 (25) And thou hast said unto me, O LORD Yahweh, Buy thee the field for money, and take witnesses; for the city is given into the hand of the Chaldeans.
