8 nThe Lord God has sworn by himself, declares the Lord, the God of hosts:
“I abhor othe pride of Jacob
and hate his strongholds,
pand I will deliver up the city and all that is in it.”
7 The Lord has sworn by nthe pride of Jacob:
“Surely oI will never forget any of their deeds.
2 For qthe Lord is restoring the majesty of Jacob
as the majesty of Israel,
for plunderers have plundered them
and rruined their branches.
