Deuteronomy 28 33
The fruit of thy land, and all thy labours, shall a nation which thou knowest not eat up; and thou shalt be only oppressed and crushed alway:
Behold, I am bringing a distant nation against you, O house of Israel,” declares the LORD. “It is an established nation, an ancient nation, a nation whose language you do not know and whose speech you do not understand.
They will devour your harvest and food; they will consume your sons and daughters; they will eat up your flocks and herds; they will feed on your vines and fig trees. With the sword they will destroy the fortified cities in which you trust.
I will indeed give you as a possession to the people of the east. They will set up their encampments and pitch their tents among you. They will eat your fruit and drink your milk.
Ephraim is oppressed, crushed in judgment, for he is determined to follow what is worthless.
