Sovereign Lord, my rage will mount up in my anger. In my zeal, in the
fire of my fury, I declare that on that day there will be a great
earthquake in the land of Israel. The fish of the sea, the birds of the
sky, the wild beasts, all the things that creep on the ground, and all
people who live on the face of the earth will shake at my presence. The

that I am the Lord.’ (Ezek. 38:18-23) Responses to the Exile 3

hand double for all her sins. (Isaiah

41 1Listen to me in silence, O coastlands;
let the peoples renew their strength;
let them approach, then let them speak;
