אָבַד (ʾābad) “to perish, destroy, demolish, become lost.”
“My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray, turning them away on the mountains. From mountain to hill they have gone. They have forgotten their fold. All who found them have devoured them, and their enemies have said, ‘We are not guilty, for they have sinned against the Lord, their habitation of righteousness, the Lord, the hope of their fathers.’” – Jeremiah 50:6-7
The Lord is our habitation of righteousness.
The Lord is the hope of our fathers, Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.
Without Him, we are lostp.
