2Hear , all ye people;hearken , O earth, and all that therein is: and let the LordGOD be witness against you, the Lord from his holytemple.3
For, behold, the LORD cometh forth out of his place, and will come down , and tread upon the high places of the earth.4
And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft , as waxbefore the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place.5
For the transgression of Jacob is all this, and for the sins of the house of Israel. What is the transgression of Jacob? is it not Samaria? and what are the high places of Judah? are they not Jerusalem?6
Therefore I will makeSamaria as an heap of the field, and as plantings of a vineyard: and I will pour down the stones thereof into the valley, and I will discover the foundations thereof.
And all the graven images thereof shall be beaten to pieces , and all the hires thereof shall be burned with the fire, and all the idols thereof will I laydesolate: for she gathered it of the hire of an harlot , and they shall return to the hire of an harlot .
