A Linen Belt

13This is what the LORD said to me: "Go and buy a linen belt and put it around your waist, but do not let it touch water."H559H3068H1980H7069H6593H232H7760H4975H935H4325 2So I bought a belt, as the LORD directed, and put it around my waist.H7069H232H1697H3068H7760H4975 3Then the word of the LORD came to me a second time:H1697H3068H8145H559 4"Take the belt you bought and are wearing around your waist, and go now to Perath and hide it there in a crevice in the rocks."H3947H232H7069H4975H6965H3212H6578H2934H5357H5553 5So I went and hid it at Perath, as the LORD told me.H3212H2934H6578H3068H6680 6Many days later the LORD said to me, "Go now to Perath and get the belt I told you to hide there."H7093H7227H3117H3068H559H6965H3212H6578H3947H232H6680H2934 7So I went to Perath and dug up the belt and took it from the place where I had hidden it, but now it was ruined and completely useless.H3212H6578H2658H3947H232H4725H2934H232H7843H6743 8Then the word of the LORD came to me:H1697H3068H559 9"This is what the LORD says: 'In the same way I will ruin the pride of Judah and the great pride of Jerusalem.H559H3068H7843H1347H3063H7227H1347H3389 10These wicked people, who refuse to listen to my words, who follow the stubbornness of their hearts and go after other gods to serve and worship them, will be like this belt—completely useless!H7451H5971H3987H8085H1697H1980H8307H3820H3212H310H312H430H5647H7812H232H6743 11For as a belt is bound around the waist, so I bound the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah to me,' declares the LORD, 'to be my people for my renown and praise and honor. But they have not listened.'H232H1692H4975H376H1692H1004H3478H1004H3063H5002H3068H5971H8034H8416H8597H8085

Wineskins

12"Say to them: 'This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Every wineskin should be filled with wine.' And if they say to you, 'Don't we know that every wineskin should be filled with wine?'H559H1697H559H3068H430H3478H5035H4390H3196H559H3045H3045H5035H4390H3196 13then tell them, 'This is what the LORD says: I am going to fill with drunkenness all who live in this land, including the kings who sit on David's throne, the priests, the prophets and all those living in Jerusalem.H559H559H3068H4390H3427H776H4428H3427H1732H3678H3548H5030H3427H3389H7943 14I will smash them one against the other, parents and children alike, declares the LORD. I will allow no pity or mercy or compassion to keep me from destroying them.' "H5310H376H251H1H1121H3162H5002H3068H2550H2347H7355H7843

Threat of Captivity

15Hear and pay attention, do not be arrogant, for the LORD has spoken.H8085H238H1361H3068H1696 16Give glory to the LORD your God before he brings the darkness, before your feet stumble on the darkening hills. You hope for light, but he will turn it to utter darkness and change it to deep gloom.H5414H3519H3068H430H2821H7272H5062H5399H2022H6960H216H7760H6757H7896H7896H6205 17If you do not listen, I will weep in secret because of your pride; my eyes will weep bitterly, overflowing with tears, because the LORD's flock will be taken captive.H8085H5315H1058H4565H6440H1466H5869H1830H1830H3381H1832H3068H5739H7617 18Say to the king and to the queen mother, "Come down from your thrones, for your glorious crowns will fall from your heads."H559H4428H1377H8213H3427H4761H3381H5850H8597 19The cities in the Negev will be shut up, and there will be no one to open them. All Judah will be carried into exile, carried completely away.H5892H5045H5462H6605H3063H1540H7965H1540 20Look up and see those who are coming from the north. Where is the flock that was entrusted to you, the sheep of which you boasted?H5375H5869H7200H935H6828H5739H5414H8597H6629 21What will you say when the LORD sets over you those you cultivated as your special allies? Will not pain grip you like that of a woman in labor?H559H6485H3925H441H7218H2256H270H802H3205 22And if you ask yourself, "Why has this happened to me?"—it is because of your many sins that your skirts have been torn off and your body mistreated.H559H3824H7122H7230H5771H7757H1540H6119H2554 23Can an Ethiopian change his skin or a leopard its spots? Neither can you do good who are accustomed to doing evil.H3569H2015H5785H5246H2272H3201H3190H3928H7489 24"I will scatter you like chaff driven by the desert wind.H6327H7179H5674H7307H4057 25This is your lot, the portion I have decreed for you," declares the LORD, "because you have forgotten me and trusted in false gods.H1486H4490H4055H5002H3068H7911H982H8267 26I will pull up your skirts over your face that your shame may be seen—H2834H7757H6440H7036H7200 27your adulteries and lustful neighings, your shameless prostitution! I have seen your detestable acts on the hills and in the fields. Woe to you, Jerusalem! How long will you be unclean?"H7200H5004H4684H2154H2184H8251H1389H7704H188H3389H2891H5750H310
