"The LORD saw this and drew back, provoked to anger by his own sons and daughters.
"People from many nations will pass by the ruins of this city and say to one another, 'Why did the LORD destroy such a great city?'
And the answer will be, 'Because they violated their covenant with the LORD their God by worshiping other gods.'"
