Time of Chastisement

The pain will be great,
You will stand like a woman in labor,
Hands upon your hips,
And your face turned pale,
But I will not
     make a complete end of you.

You have no reason to cry.
You brought justice on yourself.
Your sins are multitude,
     and even more increase.
You must be corrected.
I have done these things
          for your good.

And when this time
     of chastisement is through,
When your wounds
     have been healed,
You will draw near,
You will be My people
And once again
     I will be your God.

Jeremiah 30
