6 aWoe to them that ||are bat ease in Zion,

And trust in athe mountain of Samaria,

Which are cnamed ||dchief of the nations,

To whom the house of Israel came!

ePass ye unto fg*Calneh, and see;

And from thence go ye to ghHamath the great:

Then go down to iGath of the Philistines:

kBe they better than these kingdoms?

Or their border greater than your border?

lYe that put far away the evil day,

And cause the ||mseat of nviolence to come near;

nnThat lie upon obeds of ivory,

And ||pstretch themselves nnupon their couches,

And eat the lambs out of the flock,

And the calves out of the midst of qthe stall;

rThat ||chant to the sound of the viol,

And invent to themselves instruments of musick, slike David;

That drink ||wine in ssbowls,

And tanoint themselves with the dchief ointments:

But uthey are not grieved for the vaffliction of Joseph.

Therefore now vvshall they go captive with the first that go captive,

And wthe banquet of them that pstretched themselves shall be removed.

xaThe Lord God hath sworn by himself, saith the Lord ythe God of hosts,

I abhor zathe excellency of Jacob, and hate his palaces:

Therefore will I bdeliver up the city with all that is therein.

And it shall come to pass, bbif there remain ten men in one house, that they shall die.

10  And a man’s uncle shall take him up, and he that cburneth him,

To bring out the bones out of the house,

And shall say unto him that is dby the sides of the house,

Is there yet any with thee? and he shall say, No.

Then shall he say, efHold thy tongue:

eFor ||we may not make mention of the name of the Lord.

11  For, behold, the Lord commandeth,

And ghe will smite the great house with ||breaches,

And the little house with hclefts.

12  Shall horses run upon the rock?

Will one plow there with oxen?

For iye have turned kjudgment into gall,

And the fruit of irighteousness into hemlock:

13  lYe which rejoice in a thing of nought,

Which say, Have we not taken to us mhorns by our own strength?

14  But, behold, nI will raise up against you a nation, O house of Israel, saith the Lord ythe God of hosts;

And they shall afflict you opfrom the entering in of Hemath punto the ||river of qthe wilderness.
