2I have heard many things like these; miserable comforters are you all! 3Will your long-winded speeches never end? What ails you that you keep on arguing? 4I also could speak like you, if you were in my place; I could make fine speeches against you and shake my head at you. 5But my mouth would encourage you; comfort from my lips would bring you relief.
13"I will take away their harvest, declares the Lord. There will be no grapes on the vine. There will be no figs on the tree, and their leaves will wither. What I have given them will be taken from them."
