4Yet I have been the LORD your God ever since the land of Egypt; you know no God but me, and besides me there is no savior. 5It was I who fed you in the wilderness, in the land of drought. 6When I fed them, they were satisfied; they were satisfied, and their heart was proud; therefore they forgot me. 7So I will become like a lion to them, like a leopard I will lurk beside the way. 8I will fall upon them like a bear robbed of her cubs, and will tear open the covering of their heart; there I will devour them like a lion, as a wild animal would mangle them.
