For they know not to doright,saith the LORD, who store up violence and robberya in their palaces.11
Therefore thus saith the LordGOD; An adversary there shall be even round about the land; and he shall bring down thy strength from thee, and thy palaces shall be spoiled .
Thus saith the LORD; As the shepherd taketh out of the mouth of the liontwolegs, or a piece of an ear; so shall the children of Israel be taken out that dwell in Samaria in the corner of a bed, and in Damascus in a couch.13Hear ye, and testify in the house of Jacob,saith the LordGOD, the God of hosts,14
That in the day that I shall visitb the transgressions of Israel upon him I will also visit the altars of Bethel: and the horns of the altar shall be cut off , and fall to the ground.15
And I will smite the winterhouse with the summerhouse; and the houses of ivory shall perish , and the greathouses shall have an end , saith the LORD.
