The Linen Loincloth

13Thus said the LORD to me, "Go and buy yourself a linen loincloth, and put it on your loins, but do not dip it in water."H559H3068H1980H7069H6593H232H7760H4975H935H4325 2So I bought a loincloth according to the word of the LORD, and put it on my loins.H7069H232H1697H3068H7760H4975 3And the word of the LORD came to me a second time, saying,H1697H3068H8145H559 4"Take the loincloth that you bought and are wearing, and go now to the Euphrates, and hide it there in a cleft of the rock."H3947H232H7069H4975H6965H3212H6578H2934H5357H5553 5So I went, and hid it by the Euphrates, as the LORD commanded me.H3212H2934H6578H3068H6680 6And after many days the LORD said to me, "Go now to the Euphrates, and take from there the loincloth that I commanded you to hide there."H7093H7227H3117H3068H559H6965H3212H6578H3947H232H6680H2934 7Then I went to the Euphrates, and dug, and I took the loincloth from the place where I had hidden it. But now the loincloth was ruined; it was good for nothing.H3212H6578H2658H3947H232H4725H2934H232H7843H6743 8Then the word of the LORD came to me:H1697H3068H559 9Thus says the LORD: Just so I will ruin the pride of Judah and the great pride of Jerusalem.H559H3068H7843H1347H3063H7227H1347H3389 10This evil people, who refuse to hear my words, who stubbornly follow their own will and have gone after other gods to serve them and worship them, shall be like this loincloth, which is good for nothing.H7451H5971H3987H8085H1697H1980H8307H3820H3212H310H312H430H5647H7812H232H6743 11For as the loincloth clings to one's loins, so I made the whole house of Israel and the whole house of Judah cling to me, says the LORD, in order that they might be for me a people, a name, a praise, and a glory. But they would not listen.H232H1692H4975H376H1692H1004H3478H1004H3063H5002H3068H5971H8034H8416H8597H8085

Symbol of the Wine-Jars

12You shall speak to them this word: Thus says the LORD, the God of Israel: Every wine-jar should be filled with wine. And they will say to you, "Do you think we do not know that every wine-jar should be filled with wine?"H559H1697H559H3068H430H3478H5035H4390H3196H559H3045H3045H5035H4390H3196 13Then you shall say to them: Thus says the LORD: I am about to fill all the inhabitants of this land—the kings who sit on David's throne, the priests, the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem—with drunkenness.H559H559H3068H4390H3427H776H4428H3427H1732H3678H3548H5030H3427H3389H7943 14And I will dash them one against another, parents and children together, says the LORD. I will not pity or spare or have compassion when I destroy them.H5310H376H251H1H1121H3162H5002H3068H2550H2347H7355H7843

Exile Threatened

15Hear and give ear; do not be haughty, for the LORD has spoken.H8085H238H1361H3068H1696 16Give glory to the LORD your God before he brings darkness, and before your feet stumble on the mountains at twilight; while you look for light, he turns it into gloom and makes it deep darkness.H5414H3519H3068H430H2821H7272H5062H5399H2022H6960H216H7760H6757H7896H7896H6205 17But if you will not listen, my soul will weep in secret for your pride; my eyes will weep bitterly and run down with tears, because the LORD's flock has been taken captive.H8085H5315H1058H4565H6440H1466H5869H1830H1830H3381H1832H3068H5739H7617 18Say to the king and the queen mother; "Take a lowly seat, for your beautiful crown has come down from your head."H559H4428H1377H8213H3427H4761H3381H5850H8597 19The towns of the Negeb are shut up with no one to open them; all Judah is taken into exile, wholly taken into exile.H5892H5045H5462H6605H3063H1540H7965H1540 20Lift up your eyes and see those who come from the north. Where is the flock that was given you, your beautiful flock?H5375H5869H7200H935H6828H5739H5414H8597H6629 21What will you say when they set as head over you those whom you have trained to be your allies? Will not pangs take hold of you, like those of a woman in labor?H559H6485H3925H441H7218H2256H270H802H3205 22And if you say in your heart, "Why have these things come upon me?" it is for the greatness of your iniquity that your skirts are lifted up, and you are violated.H559H3824H7122H7230H5771H7757H1540H6119H2554 23Can Ethiopians change their skin or leopards their spots? Then also you can do good who are accustomed to do evil.H3569H2015H5785H5246H2272H3201H3190H3928H7489 24I will scatter you like chaff driven by the wind from the desert.H6327H7179H5674H7307H4057 25This is your lot, the portion I have measured out to you, says the LORD, because you have forgotten me and trusted in lies.H1486H4490H4055H5002H3068H7911H982H8267 26I myself will lift up your skirts over your face, and your shame will be seen.H2834H7757H6440H7036H7200 27I have seen your abominations, your adulteries and neighings, your shameless prostitutions on the hills of the countryside. Woe to you, O Jerusalem! How long will it be before you are made clean?H7200H5004H4684H2154H2184H8251H1389H7704H188H3389H2891H5750H310
