All this is for 1the transgression of Jacob and for the sins of the house of Israel. 2What is the transgression of Jacob? Is it not 3Samaria? And what is 4the high place of Judah? Is it not Jerusalem?
Therefore I will make 5Samaria 6a heap in the open country, a place for planting vineyards, and I will pour down her stones 7into the valley and 8uncover her foundations.
All 9her carved images shall be beaten to pieces, 10all her wages shall be burned with fire, and all her idols I will lay waste, for from 11the fee of a prostitute she gathered them, and to the fee of a prostitute they shall return.
