Young's Literal Translation

therefore in hunger and thirst, in nakedness and dire poverty, you will serve the enemies the LORD sends against you. He will put an iron yoke on your neck until he has destroyed you.
1 Kings 8:34
then hear from heaven and forgive the sin of your people Israel and bring them back to the land you gave to their ancestors.
