Deut 8:19 2Kgs 17:35 Deut 6:14 Jer 7:6 Jer 35:15 1Kgs 11:4-10 1Kgs 14:22

9 I shall now send for all the families of the north (Yahweh declares, that is, for Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon, my servant) and bring them down on this country and its inhabitants (and on all these surrounding nations); I shall curse them with utter destruction and make them an object of horror, of scorn, and ruin them for ever.

11 and this whole country will be reduced to ruin and desolation, and these nations will be enslaved to the king of Babylon for seventy years.
Dan 9:2 2Chr 36:21-22 Isa 23:15-17 Jer 25:12 Zech 1:12 Zech 7:5 Jer 4:27
