and houses without people,

12and the Lord removes people far away,
and the forsaken places are many in the midst of the land.
Isaiah 17:99 h In that day their strong cities will be like the deserted places of the wooded heights and the hilltops, which they deserted because of the children of Israel, and there will be desolation.

the fortified city a ruin;
the foreigners’ palace is a city no more;
it will never be rebuilt.

Zion has become a wilderness,
Jerusalem a desolation.

Jeremiah 26:1818“Micah of Moresheth prophesied in the days of Hezekiah king of Judah, and said to all the people of Judah: ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, m “‘Zion shall be plowed as a field;

Lamentations 1:44 The roads to Zion mourn,
for none come to n the festival;
o all her gates are desolate;
her priests p groan;
her virgins have been afflicted, ▼
▼Septuagint, Old Latin dragged away
and she herself suffers bitterly.
Lamentations 2:5-95 r The Lord has become like an enemy;
s he has swallowed up Israel;
t he has swallowed up all its palaces;
he has laid in ruins its strongholds,
and he has multiplied in the daughter of Judah
u mourning and lamentation.
6 He has laid waste his booth like a garden,
laid in ruins v his meeting place;
w the Lord has made Zion forget
festival and x Sabbath,
and in his fierce indignation has spurned king and priest.
7 y The Lord has scorned his altar,
z disowned his sanctuary;
aa he has delivered into the hand of the enemy
the walls of her palaces;
ab they raised a clamor in the house of the Lord
as on the day of festival.
8 ac The Lord determined to lay in ruins
ad the wall of the daughter of Zion;
ae he stretched out the measuring line;
he did not restrain his hand from destroying;
af he caused rampart and wall to lament;
ag they languished together.
9 Her gates have sunk into the ground;
ah he has ruined ai and broken her bars;
aj her king and princes are among the nations;
the law is no more,
and ak her prophets find
no vision from the Lord.
