King James Version

Impending Destruction from the North

6O ye children of Benjamin, gather yourselves to flee out of the midst of Jerusalem, and blow the trumpet in Tekoa, and set up a sign of fire in Bethhaccerem: for evil appeareth out of the north, and great destruction.H1121H1144H5756H7130H3389H8628H7782H8620H5375H4864H1021H7451H8259H6828H1419H7667 2I have likened the daughter of Zion to a comely and delicate woman.H1820H1323H6726H5116H6026 3The shepherds with their flocks shall come unto her; they shall pitch their tents against her round about; they shall feed every one in his place.H7462H5739H935H8628H168H5439H7462H376H3027 4Prepare ye war against her; arise, and let us go up at noon. Woe unto us! for the day goeth away, for the shadows of the evening are stretched out.H6942H4421H6965H5927H6672H188H3117H6437H6752H6153H5186 5Arise, and let us go by night, and let us destroy her palaces.H6965H5927H3915H7843H759 6For thus hath the LORD of hosts said, Hew ye down trees, and cast a mount against Jerusalem: this is the city to be visited; she is wholly oppression in the midst of her.H3068H6635H559H3772H6097H8210H5550H3389H5892H6485H6233H7130 7As a fountain casteth out her waters, so she casteth out her wickedness: violence and spoil is heard in her; before me continually is grief and wounds.H953H6979H4325H6979H7451H2555H7701H8085H6440H8548H2483H4347 8Be thou instructed, O Jerusalem, lest my soul depart from thee; lest I make thee desolate, a land not inhabited.H3256H3389H5315H3363H7760H8077H776H3427 9Thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall throughly glean the remnant of Israel as a vine: turn back thine hand as a grapegatherer into the baskets.H559H3068H6635H5953H5953H7611H3478H1612H7725H3027H1219H5552 10To whom shall I speak, and give warning, that they may hear? behold, their ear is uncircumcised, and they cannot hearken: behold, the word of the LORD is unto them a reproach; they have no delight in it.H1696H5749H8085H241H6189H3201H7181H1697H3068H2781H2654 11Therefore I am full of the fury of the LORD; I am weary with holding in: I will pour it out upon the children abroad, and upon the assembly of young men together: for even the husband with the wife shall be taken, the aged with him that is full of days.H4392H2534H3068H3811H3557H8210H5768H2351H5475H970H3162H376H802H3920H2205H4390H3117 12And their houses shall be turned unto others, with their fields and wives together: for I will stretch out my hand upon the inhabitants of the land, saith the LORD.H1004H5437H312H7704H802H3162H5186H3027H3427H776H5002H3068 13For from the least of them even unto the greatest of them every one is given to covetousness; and from the prophet even unto the priest every one dealeth falsely.H6996H1419H1214H1215H5030H3548H6213H8267 14They have healed also the hurt of the daughter of my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.H7495H7667H1323H5971H7043H559H7965H7965H7965 15Were they ashamed when they had committed abomination? nay, they were not at all ashamed, neither could they blush: therefore they shall fall among them that fall: at the time that I visit them they shall be cast down, saith the LORD.H3001H6213H8441H1571H954H954H1571H3045H3637H5307H5307H6256H6485H3782H559H3068 16Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.H559H3068H5975H1870H7200H7592H5769H5410H2896H1870H3212H4672H4771H5315H559H3212 17Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.H6965H6822H7181H6963H7782H559H7181 18Therefore hear, ye nations, and know, O congregation, what is among them.H8085H1471H3045H5712 19Hear, O earth: behold, I will bring evil upon this people, even the fruit of their thoughts, because they have not hearkened unto my words, nor to my law, but rejected it.H8085H776H935H7451H5971H6529H4284H7181H1697H8451H3988 20To what purpose cometh there to me incense from Sheba, and the sweet cane from a far country? your burnt offerings are not acceptable, nor your sacrifices sweet unto me.H935H3828H7614H2896H7070H4801H776H5930H7522H2077H6149 21Therefore thus saith the LORD, Behold, I will lay stumblingblocks before this people, and the fathers and the sons together shall fall upon them; the neighbour and his friend shall perish.H559H3068H5414H4383H5971H1H1121H3162H3782H7934H7453H6 22Thus saith the LORD, Behold, a people cometh from the north country, and a great nation shall be raised from the sides of the earth.H559H3068H5971H935H6828H776H1419H1471H5782H3411H776 23They shall lay hold on bow and spear; they are cruel, and have no mercy; their voice roareth like the sea; and they ride upon horses, set in array as men for war against thee, O daughter of Zion.H2388H7198H3591H394H7355H6963H1993H3220H7392H5483H6186H376H4421H1323H6726 24We have heard the fame thereof: our hands wax feeble: anguish hath taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail.H8085H8089H3027H7503H6869H2388H2427H3205 25Go not forth into the field, nor walk by the way; for the sword of the enemy and fear is on every side.H3318H7704H3212H1870H2719H341H4032H5439 26O daughter of my people, gird thee with sackcloth, and wallow thyself in ashes: make thee mourning, as for an only son, most bitter lamentation: for the spoiler shall suddenly come upon us.H1323H5971H2296H8242H6428H665H6213H60H3173H8563H4553H7703H6597H935 27I have set thee for a tower and a fortress among my people, that thou mayest know and try their way.H5414H969H4013H5971H3045H974H1870 28They are all grievous revolters, walking with slanders: they are brass and iron; they are all corrupters.H5493H5637H1980H7400H5178H1270H7843 29The bellows are burned, the lead is consumed of the fire; the founder melteth in vain: for the wicked are not plucked away.H4647H2787H5777H8552H800H784H6884H6884H7723H7451H5423 30Reprobate silver shall men call them, because the LORD hath rejected them.H3988H3701H7121H3068H3988
