1Hear this word that the LORD hath spoken against you, O children of Israel, against the whole family which I brought up from the land of Egypt,saying ,
You only have I known of all the families of the earth: therefore I will punisha you for all your iniquities.3
Can twowalktogether,except they be agreed ?
Will a lionroar in the forest, when he hath no prey? will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have takennothing?5
Can a birdfall in a snare upon the earth, where no gin is for him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, and have taken nothing at all ?
Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and the people not be afraid ? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORD hath not done it?
Surely the LordGOD will donothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets.8
The lion hath roared , who will notfear ? the LordGOD hath spoken , who can but prophesy ?
