All this is for the rebellion of Jacob And for the sins of the house of Israel. What is the 1rebellion of Jacob? Is it not 2Samaria? What is the 3high place of Judah? Is it not Jerusalem?
For I will make Samaria a 4heap of ruins in the open country, 5Planting places for a vineyard. I will 6pour her stones down into the valley And will 7lay bare her foundations.
All of her 8idols will be smashed, All of her earnings will be burned with fire And all of her images I will make desolate, For she collected them from a 9harlot's earnings, And to the earnings of a harlot they will return.
