WoeH1945 to the crownH5850 of pride,H1348 to the drunkardsH7910 of Ephraim,H669 whose gloriousH6643 beautyH8597 is a fadingH5034 flower,H6731 whichH834 are on the headH7218 of the fatH8081 valleysH1516 of them that are overcomeH1986 with wine!H3196
Behold,H2009 the LordH136 has a mightyH2389 and strongH533 one, which as a tempestH2230 of hailH1259 and a destroyingH6986 storm,H8178 as a floodH2230 of mightyH3524 watersH4325 overflowing,H7857 shall castH3240 down to the earthH776 with the hand.H3027
The crownH5850 of pride,H1348 the drunkardsH7910 of Ephraim,H669 shall be troddenH7429 under feet:H7272
And the gloriousH6643 beauty,H8597 whichH834 is onH5921 the headH7218 of the fatH8081 valley,H1516 shall be a fadingH5034 flower,H6733 and as the hastyH1061 fruitH1061 beforeH2962 the summer;H7019 whichH834 when he that looksH7200 on it sees,H7200 while it is yetH5750 in his handH3709 he eatsH1104 it up.
In that dayH3117 shall the LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 be for a crownH5850 of glory,H6643 and for a diademH6843 of beauty,H8597 to the residueH7605 of his people,H5971
And for a spiritH7307 of judgmentH4941 to him that sitsH3427 in judgment,H4941 and for strengthH1369 to them that turnH7725 the battleH4421 to the gate.H8179
But they alsoH1571 have erredH7686 through wine,H3196 and through strong drinkH7941 are out of the way;H8582 the priestH3548 and the prophetH5030 have erredH7686 through strong drink,H7941 they are swallowedH1104 up of wine,H3196 they are out of the wayH8582 throughH4480 strong drink;H7941 they errH7686 in vision,H7203 they stumbleH6328 in judgment.H6417
For allH3605 tablesH7979 are fullH4390 of vomitH6892 and filthiness,H6675 so that there is noH1097 placeH4725 clean.
WhomH853 H4310 shall he teachH3384 knowledge?H1844 and whomH834 H413 shall he make to understandH995 doctrine?H8052 them that are weanedH1580 from the milk,H2461 and drawnH6267 from the breasts.H7699
For preceptH6673 must be on precept,H6673 preceptH6673 on precept;H6673 lineH6957 on line,H6957 lineH6957 on line;H6957 hereH8033 a little,H2191 and thereH8033 a little:H2191
For with stammeringH3934 lipsH8193 and anotherH312 tongueH3956 will he speakH1696 to thisH2088 people.H5971
To whom he said,H559 ThisH2063 is the restH4496 with which you may cause the wearyH5889 to rest;H5117 and thisH2063 is the refreshing:H4774 yet they wouldH14 not hear.H8085
But the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 was to them preceptH6673 on precept,H6673 preceptH6673 on precept;H6673 lineH6957 on line,H6957 lineH6957 on line;H6957 hereH8033 a little,H2191 and thereH8033 a little;H2191 that they might go,H3212 and fallH3782 backward,H268 and be broken,H7665 and snared,H3369 and taken.H3920
WhyH3651 hearH8085 the wordH1697 of the LORD,H3068 you scornfulH3944 men,H582 that ruleH4910 thisH2088 peopleH5971 whichH834 is in Jerusalem.H3389
BecauseH3588 you have said,H559 We have madeH3772 a covenantH1285 with death,H4194 and with hellH7585 are we at agreement;H2374 whenH3588 the overflowingH7857 whipH7885 shall passH5674 through, it shall not comeH935 to us: for we have madeH7760 liesH3576 our refuge,H4268 and under falsehoodH8267 have we hidH5641 ourselves:
ThereforeH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LordH136 GOD,H3069 Behold,H2005 I lay in ZionH6726 for a foundationH3248 a stone,H68 a triedH976 stone,H68 a preciousH3368 cornerH6438 stone, a sureH3245 foundation:H4143 he that believesH539 shall not make haste.H2363
JudgmentH4941 also will I layH7760 to the line,H6957 and righteousnessH6666 to the plummet:H4949 and the hailH1259 shall sweepH3261 away the refugeH4268 of lies,H3576 and the watersH4325 shall overflowH7857 the hidingH5643 place.
And your covenantH1285 with deathH4194 shall be disannulled,H3722 and your agreementH2380 with hellH7585 shall not stand;H6965 whenH3588 the overflowingH7857 whipH7752 shall passH5674 through, then you shall be troddenH4823 down by it.
From the timeH1767 that it goesH5674 forthH5674 it shall takeH3947 you: for morningH1242 by morningH1242 shall it passH5674 over,H5674 by dayH3117 and by night:H3915 and it shall be a vexationH2113 onlyH7535 to understandH995 the report.H8052
For the bedH4702 is shorterH7114 than that a man can stretchH8311 himself on it: and the coveringH4541 narrowerH6887 than that he can wrapH3664 himself in it.
For the LORDH3068 shall riseH6965 up as in mountH2022 Perazim,H6559 he shall be wrothH7264 as in the valleyH6010 of Gibeon,H1391 that he may doH6213 his work,H4639 his strangeH2114 work;H4639 and bringH5647 to passH5674 his act,H5656 his strangeH5237 act.H5656
NowH6258 therefore be you not mockers,H3887 lestH6435 your bandsH4147 be made strong:H2388 for I have heardH8085 from the LordH136 GODH3069 of hostsH6635 a consumption,H3617 even determinedH2782 on the wholeH3605 earth.H776
Give you ear,H238 and hearH8085 my voice;H6963 listen,H7181 and hearH8085 my speech.H565
Does the plowmanH2790 plowH2790 allH3605 dayH3117 to sow?H2232 does he openH6605 and breakH7702 the clodsH7702 of his ground?H127
WhenH518 he has made plainH7737 the faceH6440 thereof, does he not castH6327 abroadH6327 the fitches,H7100 and scatterH2236 the cummin,H3646 and castH7760 in the principalH7795 wheatH2406 and the appointedH5567 barleyH8184 and the ryeH3698 in their place?H1367
For his GodH430 does instructH3256 him to discretion,H4941 and does teachH3384 him.
For the fitchesH7100 are not threshedH1758 with a threshingH2742 instrument, neitherH1077 is a cartH5699 wheelH212 turnedH5437 about on the cummin;H3646 but the fitchesH7100 are beatenH2251 out with a staff,H4294 and the cumminH3646 with a rod.H7626
BreadH3899 corn is bruised;H1854 becauseH3588 he will not everH5331 be threshingH1758 it, nor breakH2000 it with the wheelH1536 of his cart,H5699 norH3808 bruiseH1854 it with his horsemen.H6571
ThisH2088 alsoH1571 comesH3318 forthH3318 from the LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 which is wonderfulH6381 in counsel,H6098 and excellentH1431 in working.H8454
