Therefore thus saith the LORD; Behold, against this family do I devise an evil, from which ye shall not remove your necks; neither shall ye go haughtily: for this time is evil.
In that day shall one take up a parable against you, and lament with a doleful lamentation, and say , We be utterly spoiled : he hath changed the portion of my people: how hath he removed it from me! turning away he hath divided our fields.
O thou that art named the house of Jacob, is the spirit of the LORD straitened ? are these his doings? do not my words do good to him that walketh uprightly?
And I said , Hear , I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel; Is it not for you to know judgment?
Thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that make my people err , that bite with their teeth, and cry , Peace; and he that putteth not into their mouths, they even prepare war against him.
The heads thereof judge for reward, and the priests thereof teach for hire, and the prophets thereof divine for money: yet will they lean upon the LORD, and say , Is not the LORD among us? none evil can come upon us.
And many nations shall come , and say , Come , and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth of Zion, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem.
Now also many nations are gathered against thee, that say , Let her be defiled , and let our eye look upon Zion.
Hear ye now what the LORD saith ; Arise , contend thou before the mountains, and let the hills hear thy voice.
Then she that is mine enemy shall see it, and shame shall cover her which said unto me, Where is the LORD thy God? mine eyes shall behold her: now shall she be trodden down as the mire of the streets.
