Jeremiah 15:9

9 g  She who bore seven has grown feeble;

i  her sun went down while it was yet day;
she has been shamed and disgraced.
And the rest of them I will give to the sword
before their enemies,

declares the  Lord.”

Jeremiah 18:21

their youths be struck down by the sword in battle.

Lamentations 2:21-22

21 In the dust of the streets
l  lie the young and the old;
m  my young women and my young men
have fallen by the sword;
n  you have killed them in the day of your anger,
slaughtering o  without pity.
22 You summoned as if to p  a festival day
q  my terrors on every side,
r  and on the day of the anger of the  Lord
no one escaped or survived;
s  those whom I held and raised
my enemy destroyed.
