RunH7751 you to and froH7751 through the streetsH2351 of Jerusalem,H3389 and seeH7200 now,H4994 and know,H3045 and seekH1245 in the broadH7339 places thereof, ifH518 you can findH4672 a man,H376 ifH518 there be any that executesH6213 judgment,H4941 that seeksH1245 the truth;H530 and I will pardonH5545 it.
And thoughH518 they say,H559 The LORDH3068 lives;H2416 surelyH403 they swearH7650 falsely.H8267
O LORD,H3068 are not your eyesH5869 on the truth?H530 you have strickenH5221 them, but they have not grieved;H2342 you have consumedH3615 them, but they have refusedH3985 to receiveH3947 correction:H4148 they have made their facesH6440 harderH2388 than a rock;H5553 they have refusedH3985 to return.H7725
Therefore I said,H559 SurelyH389 theseH1992 are poor;H1800 they are foolish:H2973 for they knowH3045 not the wayH1870 of the LORD,H3068 nor the judgmentH4941 of their God.H430
I will getH3212 me to the greatH1419 men, and will speakH1696 to them; for they have knownH3045 the wayH1870 of the LORD,H3068 and the judgmentH4941 of their God:H430 but theseH1992 have altogetherH3162 brokenH7665 the yoke,H5923 and burstH5423 the bonds.H4147
WhyH5921 H3651 a lionH738 out of the forestH3293 shall slayH5221 them, and a wolfH2061 of the eveningsH6160 shall spoilH7703 them, a leopardH5246 shall watchH8245 overH5921 their cities:H5892 everyH3605 one that goesH3318 out thereH2007 shall be tornH2963 in pieces: becauseH3588 their transgressionsH6588 are many,H7231 and their backslidingsH4878 are increased.H6105
HowH335 shall I pardonH5545 you for this?H2063 your childrenH1121 have forsakenH5800 me, and swornH7650 by them that are noH3808 gods:H430 when I had fed them to the full,H7646 they then committedH5003 adultery,H5003 and assembledH1413 themselves by troops in the harlots'H2181 houses.H1004
They were as fedH2109 horsesH5483 in the morning:H7904 everyH376 oneH376 neighedH6670 afterH413 his neighbor'sH7453 wife.H802
Shall I not visitH6485 for theseH428 things? saidH5002 the LORD:H3068 and shall not my soulH5315 be avengedH5358 on suchH834 a nationH1471 as this?H2088
GoH5927 you up on her walls,H8284 and destroy;H7843 but makeH6213 not a full end:H3615 takeH5493 awayH5493 her battlements;H5189 for they are not the LORD's.H3068
For the houseH1004 of IsraelH3478 and the houseH1004 of JudahH3063 have dealt very treacherouslyH898 against me, saidH5002 the LORD.H3068
They have beliedH3584 the LORD,H3068 and said,H559 It is not he; neitherH3808 shall evilH7451 comeH935 on us; neitherH3808 shall we seeH7200 swordH2719 nor famine:H7458
And the prophetsH5030 shall becomeH1961 wind,H7307 and the wordH1697 is not in them: thusH3541 shall it be doneH6213 to them.
WhyH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LORDH3068 GodH430 of hosts,H6635 BecauseH3282 you speakH1696 thisH2088 word,H1697 behold,H2005 I will makeH5414 my wordsH1697 in your mouthH6310 fire,H784 and thisH2088 peopleH5971 wood,H6086 and it shall devourH398 them.
See,H2009 I will bringH935 a nationH1471 on you from far,H4801 O houseH1004 of Israel,H3478 saidH5002 the LORD:H3068 it is a mightyH386 nation,H1471 it is an ancientH5769 nation,H1471 a nationH1471 whose languageH3956 you knowH3045 not, neitherH3808 understandH8085 whatH4100 they say.H1696
Their quiverH827 is as an openH6605 sepulcher,H6913 they are allH3605 mightyH1368 men.
And they shall eatH398 up your harvest,H7105 and your bread,H3899 which your sonsH1121 and your daughtersH1323 should eat:H398 they shall eatH398 up your flocksH6629 and your herds:H1241 they shall eatH398 up your vinesH1612 and your figH8384 trees: they shall impoverishH7567 your fencedH4013 cities,H5892 whereinH834 H2004 you trusted,H982 with the sword.H2719
NeverthelessH1571 in thoseH1992 days,H3117 saidH5002 the LORD,H3068 I will not makeH6213 a full endH3615 with you.
And it shall comeH1961 to pass, whenH3588 you shall say,H559 WhyH8478 H4100 doesH6213 the LORDH3068 our GodH430 allH3605 theseH428 things to us? then shall you answerH559 them, Like as you have forsakenH5800 me, and servedH5647 strangeH5236 godsH430 in your land,H776 soH3651 shall you serveH5647 strangersH2114 in a landH776 that is not your's.
DeclareH5046 thisH2063 in the houseH1004 of Jacob,H3290 and publishH8085 it in Judah,H3063 saying,H559
HearH8085 nowH4994 this,H2063 O foolishH5530 people,H5971 and withoutH369 understanding;H3820 which have eyes,H5869 and seeH7200 not; which have ears,H241 and hearH8085 not:
FearH3372 you not me? saidH5002 the LORD:H3068 will you not trembleH2342 at my presence,H6440 whichH834 have placedH7760 the sandH2344 for the boundH1366 of the seaH3220 by a perpetualH5769 decree,H2706 that it cannotH3808 passH5674 it: and though the wavesH1530 thereof tossH1607 themselves, yet can they not prevail;H3201 though they roar,H1993 yet canH3201 they not passH5674 overH5674 it?
But thisH2088 peopleH5971 has a revoltingH5637 and a rebelliousH4784 heart;H3820 they are revoltedH5493 and gone.H3212
NeitherH3808 sayH559 they in their heart,H3824 Let us nowH4994 fearH3372 the LORDH3068 our God,H430 that givesH5414 rain,H1653 both the formerH3138 and the latter,H4456 in his season:H6256 he reservesH8104 to us the appointedH2708 weeksH7620 of the harvest.H7105
Your iniquitiesH5771 have turnedH5186 away theseH428 things, and your sinsH2403 have withheldH4513 goodH2896 things from you.
For among my peopleH5971 are foundH4672 wickedH7563 men: they lay wait,H7789 as he that setsH7918 snares;H3353 they setH5324 a trap,H4889 they catchH3920 men.H582
As a cageH3619 is fullH4392 of birds,H5775 soH3651 are their housesH1004 fullH4392 of deceit:H4820 thereforeH5921 H3651 they are becomeH6238 great,H1431 and waxen rich.H6238
They are waxen fat,H8080 they shine:H6245 yes,H1571 they overpassH5674 the deedsH1697 of the wicked:H7451 they judgeH1777 not the cause,H1779 the causeH1779 of the fatherless,H3490 yet they prosper;H6743 and the rightH4941 of the needyH34 do they not judge.H8199
Shall I not visitH6485 for theseH428 things? saidH5002 the LORD:H3068 shall not my soulH5315 be avengedH5358 on suchH834 a nationH1471 as this?H2088
A wonderfulH8047 and horribleH8186 thing is committedH1961 in the land;H776
The prophetsH5030 prophesyH5012 falsely,H8267 and the priestsH3548 bearH7287 ruleH7287 by their means;H3027 and my peopleH5971 loveH157 to have it so:H3651 and whatH4100 will you doH6213 in the endH319 thereof?
