Witnesses against Guilty Israel

3Can two people walk together without agreeing on the direction?H8147H3212H3162H1115H3259 4Does a lion ever roar in a thicket without first finding a victim? Does a young lion growl in its den without first catching its prey?H738H7580H3293H2964H3715H5414H6963H4585H3920H1115 5Does a bird ever get caught in a trap that has no bait? Does a trap spring shut when there’s nothing to catch?H6833H5307H6341H776H4170H5927H6341H127H3920H3920 6When the ram’s horn blows a warning, shouldn’t the people be alarmed? Does disaster come to a city unless the Lord has planned it?H7782H8628H5892H5971H2729H7451H5892H3068H6213 7Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until he reveals his plans to his servants the prophets.H136H3069H6213H1697H1540H5475H5650H5030 8The lion has roared—so who isn’t frightened? The Sovereign Lord has spoken—so who can refuse to proclaim his message?H738H7580H3808H3372H136H3069H1696H5012 9Announce this to the leaders of Philistia and to the great ones of Egypt. “Take your seats now on the hills around Samaria, and witness the chaos and oppression in Israel.”H8085H759H795H759H776H4714H559H622H2022H8111H7200H7227H4103H7130H6217H8432 10“My people have forgotten how to do right,” says the Lord. “Their fortresses are filled with wealth taken by theft and violence.H3045H6213H5229H5002H3068H686H2555H7701H759 11Therefore,” says the Sovereign Lord, “an enemy is coming! He will surround them and shatter their defenses. Then he will plunder all their fortresses.”H559H136H3069H6862H5439H776H3381H5797H759H962 12This is what the Lord says. “A shepherd who tries to rescue a sheep from a lion’s mouth will recover only two legs or a piece of an ear. So it will be for the Israelites in Samaria lying on luxurious beds, and for the people of Damascus reclining on couches.H559H3068H7462H5337H6310H738H8147H3767H915H241H1121H3478H5337H3427H8111H6285H4296H1833H6210 13“Now listen to this, and announce it throughout all Israel,” says the Lord, the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies.H8085H5749H1004H3290H5002H136H3069H430H6635 14“On the very day I punish Israel for its sins, I will destroy the pagan altars at Bethel. The horns of the altar will be cut off and fall to the ground.H3117H6485H6588H3478H6485H4196H1008H7161H4196H1438H5307H776 15And I will destroy the beautiful homes of the wealthy—their winter mansions and their summer houses, too—all their palaces filled with ivory,” says the Lord.H5221H2779H1004H7019H1004H1004H8127H6H7227H1004H5486H5002H3068
