Listen to me, you "fat cows" of Samaria, you women who oppress the poor and crush the needy and who are always asking your husbands for another drink!
The Sovereign LORD has sworn this by his holiness: "The time will come when you will be led away with hooks in your noses. Every last one of you will be dragged away like a fish on a hook!
You will leave by going straight through the breaks in the wall; you will be thrown from your fortresses. a I, the LORD, have spoken!"
