“Oh that My people would listen to Me,
That Israel would walk in My ways!
“I would quickly subdue their enemies
And turn My hand against their adversaries.
“Those who hate the Lord would pretend obedience to Him,
And their time of punishment would be forever.
“But I would feed you with the finest of the wheat,
And with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”
from Psalm 81

from Jeremiah 47
Concerning Moab. Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel…
For because of your trust in your own achievements and treasures,
Even you yourself will be captured;
And Chemosh will go off into exile
Together with his priests and his princes.
Moab will be destroyed from being a people
Because he has become arrogant toward the Lord.
“Woe to you, Moab!
The people of Chemosh have perished;
For your sons have been taken away captive
And your daughters into captivity.
“Yet I will restore the fortunes of Moab
In the latter days,” declares the Lord.
from Jeremiah 48
