Doom to those resting comfortably in Zion and those trusting in Mount Samaria, the chiefs of the nations, to whom the house of Israel comes!
Cross over to Calneh and see; from there go to Hamath the great; then go down to Gath of the Philistines. Are you better than these kingdoms? Or is your territory greater than their territory?
Doom to those who ignore the evil day and make violent rule draw near:
who lie on beds of ivory, stretch out on their couches, eat lambs from the flock, and bull calves from the stall;
who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp, and, like David, compose tunes on musical instruments;
who drink bowls of wine, put the best of oils on themselves, but who aren't grieved over the ruin of Joseph!
Therefore, they will now be the first to be taken away, and the feast of those who lounged at the table will pass away.
