15 Listen, ·family [L house] of Israel,” says the Lord,
    “I will soon bring a nation from far away ·to attack [L against] you.
It is an ·old [ancient] nation that has ·lasted [endured] a long time [C Babylon].
    ·The people there speak a language [Its language/L tongue] you do not know [C Aramaic or Akkadian];
    you cannot ·understand [L hear] what they say.
16 Their ·arrows bring death [L quiver is like an open grave].
    All their people are strong warriors.
17 They will ·eat [consume; devour] your crops and your food.
    They will ·eat [consume; devour] your sons and daughters.
They will ·eat [consume; devour] your flocks and herds.
    They will ·eat [consume; devour] your ·grapes [L vines] and ·figs [L fig trees].
They will destroy with their swords
    the ·strong, walled [fortified] cities you ·trust [have confidence in].
