1 Kings 9:8
this house, [which
] is high, every one that passeth by it shall be astonished, and shall hiss; and they shall say, Why
hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and to this house? ... And they shall answer, Because
they forsook the LORD their God, who brought forth their fathers out of the land of Egypt, and have taken hold upon other gods, and have worshipped them, and served them: therefore
hath the LORD brought upon them all this evil.
2 Chronicles 7:21
And this house
, which is high, shall be an astonishment
to every one that passeth by it; so that he shall say, Why
hath the LORD done thus unto this land, and unto this house? ... And it shall be answered, Because they forsook
the LORD God of their fathers, which brought them forth out of the land of Egypt, and laid hold on other gods, and worshipped them, and served them: therefore
hath he brought all this evil upon them.

down, and hath not pitied: and he hath caused
] enemy to rejoice over thee, he hath set up the horn of thine adversaries.
The kings of the earth, and all the inhabitants of the world, would not have believed that the adversary and the enemy should have entered into the gates of Jerusalem.
And they shall comfort you, when ye see their ways and their doings: and ye shall know that I have not
done without cause all that I have done in it, saith the Lord GOD.
Romans 2:5 But after
thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest
up unto thyself wrath against the day
of wrath and revelation
of the righteous judgment of God;
