1Woe to them that are at ease in Zion, and trust in the mountain of Samaria, which are namedchief of the nations, to whom the house of Israelcame !
2Pass ye unto Calneh, and see ; and from thence go ye to Hamath the great : then go down to Gath of the Philistines: be they better than these kingdoms? or their bordergreater than your border?3
Ye that put far away the evilday, and cause the seata of violence to come near ;
That lie upon beds of ivory, and stretchb themselves upon their couches, and eat the lambs out of the flock, and the calves out of the midst of the stall;5
That chantc to the sound of the viol, and invent to themselves instruments of musick, like David;6
That drinkwined in bowls, and anoint themselves with the chiefointments: but they are not grieved for the affliction of Joseph.7
Therefore now shall they go captive with the first that go captive , and the banquet of them that stretched themselves shall be removed .
