The Lord’s Case against Israel

6Listen to what the Lord is saying. “Stand up and state your case against me. Let the mountains and hills be called to witness your complaints.H8085H3068H559H6965H7378H2022H1389H8085H6963 2And now, O mountains, listen to the Lord’s complaint! He has a case against his people. He will bring charges against Israel.H8085H2022H3068H7379H386H4146H776H3068H7379H5971H3198H3478 3“O my people, what have I done to you? What have I done to make you tired of me? Answer me!H5971H6213H3811H6030 4For I brought you out of Egypt and redeemed you from slavery. I sent Moses, Aaron, and Miriam to help you.H5927H776H4714H6299H1004H5650H7971H6440H4872H175H4813 5Don’t you remember, my people, how King Balak of Moab tried to have you cursed and how Balaam son of Beor blessed you instead? And remember your journey from Acacia Grove to Gilgal, when I, the Lord, did everything I could to teach you about my faithfulness.”H5971H2142H1111H4428H4124H3289H1109H1121H1160H6030H7851H1537H3045H6666H3068 6What can we bring to the Lord? What kind of offerings should we give him? Should we bow before God with offerings of yearling calves?H6923H3068H3721H4791H430H6923H5930H5695H8141H1121 7Should we offer him thousands of rams and ten thousand rivers of olive oil? Should we sacrifice our firstborn children to pay for our sins?H3068H7521H505H352H7233H5158H8081H5414H1060H6588H6529H990H2403H5315 8No, O people, the Lord has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you. to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.H5046H120H2896H3068H1875H6213H4941H160H2617H3212H6800H430

Israel’s Guilt and Punishment

9Fear the Lord if you are wise! His voice calls to everyone in Jerusalem. “The armies of destruction are coming; the Lord is sending them.H3068H6963H7121H5892H8454H7200H8034H8085H4294H3259 10What shall I say about the homes of the wicked filled with treasures gained by cheating? What about the disgusting practice of measuring out grain with dishonest measures?H786H214H7562H376H1004H7563H7332H374H2194 11How can I tolerate your merchants who use dishonest scales and weights?H2135H7562H3976H3599H4820H68 12The rich among you have become wealthy through extortion and violence. Your citizens are so used to lying that their tongues can no longer tell the truth.H6223H4390H2555H3427H1696H8267H3956H7423H6310 13“Therefore, I will wound you! I will bring you to ruin for all your sins.H2470H5221H8074H2403 14You will eat but never have enough. Your hunger pangs and emptiness will remain. And though you try to save your money, it will come to nothing in the end. You will save a little, but I will give it to those who conquer you.H398H7646H3445H7130H5253H6403H6403H5414H2719 15You will plant crops but not harvest them. You will press your olives but not get enough oil to anoint yourselves. You will trample the grapes but get no juice to make your wine.H2232H7114H1869H2132H5480H8081H8492H8354H3196 16You keep only the laws of evil King Omri; you follow only the example of wicked King Ahab! Therefore, I will make an example of you, bringing you to complete ruin. You will be treated with contempt, mocked by all who see you.”H2708H6018H8104H4639H1004H256H3212H4156H5414H8047H3427H8322H5375H2781H5971
