When the warnings are not heeded, and the stubbornness continues consequences follow. Though the LORD destroy, and though a nation fall, it is the glory of God to mend, to heal, to restore the brokenhearted. His mercy is present. Though His judgements are in the earth. And though a nation only learns through judgement, it is not in vain. His love is steadfast, but to not be received in vain. His grace is available but shall not be received in vain. In vain we build and plant. The LORD uproots and tears down. Who is a God like the LORD, mighty in power, doing wonders. His Word will go forth, it will accomplish its mission. We are torn down, but not in vain; we are being broken, but not in vain.
