9 For her a1wound is incurable, For 2it has come to Judah; It has reached the 3gate of my people, Even to Jerusalem.
10 4Tell it not in Gath, Weep not at all. At bBeth-le-aphrah roll yourself in the dust.
11 cGo on your way, inhabitant of dShaphir, in 5shameful nakedness. The inhabitant of e6Zaanan does not fescape. The lamentation of gBeth-ezel: "He will take from you its hsupport."
12 For the inhabitant of iMaroth Becomes weak 7waiting for good, Because a calamity has come down from the LORD To the 8gate of Jerusalem.
13 Harness the chariot to the team of horses, O inhabitant of 9Lachish - She was the beginning of sin To the daughter of Zion - Because in you were found The 10rebellious acts of Israel.
14 Therefore you will give parting 11gifts On behalf of Moresheth-gath; The houses of 12Achzib will become a 13deception To the kings of Israel.
15 Moreover, I will bring on you The one who takes possession, O inhabitant of j14Mareshah. The glory of Israel will enter 15Adullam.
16 Make yourself 16bald and cut off your hair, Because of the children of your delight; Extend your baldness like the eagle, For they will 17go from you into exile.
