the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will
cut off man and beast from it:
EZE 14:14 Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it,
they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith
the Lord GOD.
EZE 14:15 If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they

GOD, they shall deliver neither sons nor daughters; they only shall be
delivered, but the land shall be desolate.
