    The Jews would be attacked and wiped out

  • “Weigh and Divide”

    The judgment would be deliberate and thorough

  • “Burn”

    Some would die in the city

  • “Strike”

    Some would be killed outside the city

  • “Scatter”

    Some would escape, but they would find no peace

  • “Wrap”

    Some exiles would return to Jerusalem, and pure worship would be preserved
