49I will send plagues upon thee; widowhood, poverty, famine, sword, and pestilence, to waste thy houses with destruction and death. 50And the glory of thy Power shall be dried up as a flower, the heat shall arise that is sent over thee. 51Thou shalt be weakened as a poor woman with stripes, and as one chastised with wounds, so that the mighty and lovers shall not be able to receive thee. 52Would I with jealousy have so proceeded against thee, saith the Lord,53If thou hadst not always slain my chosen, exalting the stroke of thine hands, and saying over their dead, when thou wast drunken, 54Set forth the beauty of thy countenance? 55The reward of thy whoredom shall be in thy bosom, therefore shalt thou receive recompence.
