כֹּה אָמַר יְהֹוָה עַל־כָּל־שְׁכֵנַי הָרָעִים הַנֹּגְעִים בַּנַּחֲלָה אֲשֶׁר־הִנְחַלְתִּי אֶת־עַמִּי אֶת־יִשְׂרָאֵל הִנְנִי נֹתְשָׁם מֵעַל אַדְמָתָם וְאֶת־בֵּית יְהוּדָה אֶתּוֹשׁ מִתּוֹכָם׃

Thus said Hashem: As for My wicked neighbors who encroach on the heritage that I gave to My people Yisrael—I am going to uproot them from their soil, and I will uproot the House of Yehuda out of the midst of them.
