Thus said the LORD: Go down to the house of the king of Yehudah, and speak there this word,
Say, Hear the word of the LORD, king of Yehudah, who sits on the throne of David, you, and your servants, and your people who enter in by these gates.
Thus says the LORD: Execute you justice and righteousness, and deliver him who is robbed out of the hand of the oppressor: and do no wrong, do no violence, to the sojourner, the fatherless, nor the widow; neither shed innocent blood in this place.
For if you do this thing indeed, then shall there enter in by the gates of this house kings sitting on the throne of David, riding in chariots and on horses, he, and his servants, and his people.
But if you will not hear these words, I swear by myself, says the LORD, that this house shall become a desolation.
For thus says the LORD concerning the house of the king of Yehudah: You are Gil`ad to me, [and] the head of Levanon; [yet] surely I will make you a wilderness, [and] cities which are not inhabited.
