Warning to Bani Israel: ‘Ye verily will work corruption in the earth twice, and ye will become great tyrants.’ - God

In The Night Journey 17:5 The Lord said: “So when the first of the warnings came to pass, We sent against you Our servants given to terrible warfare: They entered the very inmost parts of your homes; and it was a warning completely fulfilled.”
In Jeremiah 25:9 The Lord said: "I will send for my servant Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon. I will exterminate them and make them a thing of horror and derision, a scandal for ever."
In Jeremiah 52:4 to 27 the annihilation of the Jews along with their king Zedekiah and his sons and the destruction of Jerusalem by the Babylonian Nebuchadnezzar in 586B.C. are mentioned in detail. The Babylonians penetrated through their lands, their temple, and their homes, and carried away the Jews, men and women, into captivity.
The return of the Jews from the captivity was about 520 B.C. They started life afresh. They rebuilt their temple. They carried out various reforms and developed a new Judaism under the guidance of prophet Uzayr (as).
In The Night Journey 17:7 The Lord said: “So when the second of the warnings came to pass, We permitted your enemies to disfigure your faces, and to enter your Temple as they had entered it before, and to visit with destruction all that fell into their power.”
The Jews again showed a stiff-necked resistance to Allah's message in the time of prophet Isa (as); and the inevitable doom followed in the complete and final destruction of the temple under Titus in 70 A.D, when they rejected the message of Isa (as).
The misery of the Jews lasted from the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus to the establishment of their state in 1948. If they again make mischief in the world, there will be no respite for them. It is a prophecy: “It may be that your Lord will have mercy on ye, but if ye again return (to disobedience) We too will return (to punishment), and We have made hell a prison for the unbelievers.” [17:8]
