Your people will fall slain among you, and you will know that I am the LORD.
And I will stretch out my hand against them and make the land a desolate waste from the desert to Diblah --wherever they live. Then they will know that I am the LORD.'"
But I will spare a few of them from the sword, famine and plague, so that in the nations where they go they may acknowledge all their detestable practices. Then they will know that I am the LORD."
The inhabited towns will be laid waste and the land will be desolate. Then you will know that I am the LORD.'"
