2Hear, O peoples, all of ayou; 1Listen, O earth and ball it contains, And let the LordcGOD be a 2witness against you, The Lord from His holytemple.
For behold, the LORD is 3comingforth from His place. He will comedown and 4tread on the highplaces of the dearth.
45The mountains will meltunder Him And the valleys will be split, Like waxbefore the fire, Like waterpoureddown a steepplace.
5Allthis is for the rebellion of Jacob And for the sins of the house of Israel. What is the 6rebellion of Jacob? Is it not 7Samaria? What is the 8higheplace of Judah? Is it not Jerusalem?
For I will makeSamaria a 9heap of ruinsfin the open country, 10Plantingplaces for a vineyard. I will 11pour her stonesdown into the valley And will 12laybare her foundations.
7All of her 13idols will be smashed, All of her earnings will be burned with fire And all of her images I will makedesolate, For she collected them from a 14harlot'searnings, And to the earnings of a harlot they will return.
