Jeremiah 18:16

To make their land desolate and a perpetual hissing; Everyone who passes by it will be astonished And shake his head.

അവർ അവരുടെ ദേശത്തെ ശൂന്യവും നിത്യപരിഹാസവും ആക്കുന്നു; അതിൽകൂടി കടന്നു പോകുന്ന ഏവനും സ്തംഭിച്ചു തലകുലുക്കും.

Isaiah 33:9

The earth mourns and languishes, Lebanon is shamed and shriveled; Sharon is like a wilderness, And Bashan and Carmel shake off their fruits.

ദേശം ദുഃഖിച്ചു ക്ഷയിക്കുന്നു; ലെബാനോൻ ലജ്ജിച്ചു വാടിപ്പോകുന്നു; ശാരോൻ മരുഭൂമിപോലെ ആയിരിക്കുന്നു; ബാശാനും കർമ്മേലും ഇലപൊഴിക്കുന്നു.

Psalms 69:23

Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see; And make their loins shake continually.

അവരുടെ കണ്ണു കാണാതവണ്ണം ഇരുണ്ടുപോകട്ടെ; അവരുടെ അര എപ്പോഴും ആടുമാറാക്കേണമേ.
