Israel sowed treacherously, so they would reap treachery,
“Therefore I will also make you sick by striking you, by making you desolate because of your sins. You shall eat, but not be satisfied; hunger shall be in your midst. You may carry some away, but shall not save them; and what you do rescue I will give over to the sword” (Micah 6:13–14).
There is no escaping the justice of God.
