Destruction of Jerusalem Impending

1 "Flee for safety, O sons of 1Benjamin, From the midst of Jerusalem! Now blow a trumpet in Tekoa And raise a signal over a2Beth-haccerem; For evil looks down from the 3north, And a great destruction. 2 "The comely and 4dainty one, 5the daughter of Zion, I will cut off. 3 "6Shepherds and their flocks will come to her, They will 7pitch their tents baround her, They will pasture each in his cplace. 4 "d8Prepare war against her; Arise, and let us eattack at 9noon. Woe to us, for the day declines, For the shadows of the evening lengthen! 5 "Arise, and let us fattack by night And 10destroy her gpalaces!" 6 For thus says the LORD of hosts, "11Cut down her trees And cast up a 12siege against Jerusalem. This is the city to be punished, In whose midst there is only 13oppression. 7 "14As a well hkeeps its waters fresh, So she ikeeps fresh her wickedness. 15Violence and destruction are heard in her; 16Sickness and wounds are ever before Me.
