HearH8085 you the wordH1697 whichH834 the LORDH3068 speaksH1696 to you, O houseH1004 of Israel:H3478
ThusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 LearnH3925 not the wayH1870 of the heathen,H1471 and be not dismayedH2865 at the signsH226 of heaven;H8064 for the heathenH1471 are dismayedH2865 at them.
For the customsH2708 of the peopleH5971 are vain:H1892 for one cutsH3772 a treeH6086 out of the forest,H3293 the workH4639 of the handsH3027 of the workman,H2796 with the ax.H4621
They deckH3302 it with silverH3701 and with gold;H2091 they fastenH2388 it with nailsH4548 and with hammers,H4717 that it moveH6328 not.
They are uprightH4749 as the palmH8560 tree, but speakH1696 not: they must needs be borne,H5375 becauseH3588 they cannotH3808 go.H6805 Be not afraidH3372 of them; for they cannotH3808 do evil,H7489 neitherH1571 H369 alsoH1571 is it in them to do good.H3190
For as much as there is noneH369 likeH3644 to you, O LORD;H3068 you are great,H1419 and your nameH8034 is greatH1419 in might.H1369
WhoH4310 would not fearH3372 you, O KingH4428 of nations?H1471 for to you does it appertain:H2969 for as much as among allH3605 the wiseH2450 men of the nations,H1471 and in allH3605 their kingdoms,H4467 there is noneH369 likeH3644 to you.
But they are altogetherH259 brutishH1197 and foolish:H3688 the stockH6086 is a doctrineH4148 of vanities.H1892
SilverH3701 spreadH7554 into plates is broughtH935 from Tarshish,H8659 and goldH2091 from Uphaz,H210 the workH4639 of the workman,H2796 and of the handsH3027 of the founder:H6884 blueH8504 and purpleH713 is their clothing:H3830 they are allH3605 the workH4639 of cunningH2450 men.
But the LORDH3068 is the trueH571 God,H430 he is the livingH2416 God,H430 and an everlastingH5769 king:H4428 at his wrathH7110 the earthH776 shall tremble,H7493 and the nationsH1471 shall not be ableH3201 to abideH3557 his indignation.H2195
ThusH1836 shall you sayH560 to them, The godsH426 that have not madeH5648 the heavensH8065 and the earth,H778 even they shall perishH7 from the earth,H772 and from underH8460 theseH429 heavens.H8065
He has madeH6213 the earthH776 by his power,H3581 he has establishedH3559 the worldH8398 by his wisdom,H2451 and has stretchedH5186 out the heavensH8064 by his discretion.H8394
When he uttersH5414 his voice,H6963 there is a multitudeH1995 of watersH4325 in the heavens,H8064 and he causes the vaporsH5387 to ascendH5927 from the endsH7097 of the earth;H776 he makesH6213 lightningH1300 with rain,H4306 and bringsH3318 forthH3318 the windH7307 out of his treasures.H214
EveryH3605 manH120 is brutishH1197 in his knowledge:H1847 everyH3605 founderH6884 is confoundedH3001 by the gravenH6459 image:H6459 for his moltenH5262 image is falsehood,H8267 and there is noH3808 breathH7307 in them.
They are vanity,H1892 and the workH4639 of errors:H8595 in the timeH6256 of their visitationH6486 they shall perish.H6
The portionH2506 of JacobH3290 is not like them: for he is the formerH3335 of allH3605 things; and IsraelH3478 is the rodH7626 of his inheritance:H5159 The LORDH3068 of hostsH6635 is his name.H8034
GatherH622 up your waresH3666 out of the land,H776 O inhabitantH3427 of the fortress.H4693
For thusH3541 saidH559 the LORD,H3068 Behold,H2005 I will slingH7049 out the inhabitantsH3427 of the landH776 at thisH2063 once,H6471 and will distressH6887 them, that they may findH4672 it so.
WoeH188 is me for my hurt!H7667 my woundH4347 is grievous;H2470 but I said,H559 TrulyH389 thisH2088 is a grief,H2483 and I must bearH5375 it.
My tabernacleH168 is spoiled,H7703 and allH3605 my cordsH4340 are broken:H5423 my childrenH1121 are goneH3318 forthH3318 of me, and they are not: there is noneH369 to stretchH5186 forth my tentH168 any more,H5750 and to setH6965 up my curtains.H3407
For the pastorsH7462 are becomeH1197 brutish,H1197 and have not soughtH1875 the LORD:H3068 thereforeH5921 H3651 they shall not prosper,H7919 and allH3605 their flocksH4830 shall be scattered.H6327
Behold,H2009 the noiseH6963 of the bruitH8052 is come,H935 and a greatH1419 commotionH7494 out of the northH6828 country,H776 to makeH7760 the citiesH5892 of JudahH3063 desolate,H8077 and a denH4583 of dragons.H8577
O LORD,H3068 I knowH3045 that the wayH1870 of manH120 is not in himself: it is not in man that walksH1980 to directH3559 his steps.H6806
O LORD,H3068 correctH3256 me, but with judgment;H4941 not in your anger,H639 lestH6435 you bring me to nothing.H4591
PourH8210 out your furyH2534 on the heathenH1471 that knowH3045 you not, and on the familiesH4940 that callH7121 not on your name:H8034 for they have eatenH398 up Jacob,H3290 and devouredH398 him, and consumedH3615 him, and have madeH6213 his habitationH5116 desolate.H8074
