Alas, sinful nation, People weighed down with iniquity, Offspring of evildoers, Sons who act corruptly! They have abandoned the LORD , They have despised the Holy One of Israel, They have turned away from Him.
Therefore the Lord GOD of hosts, The Mighty One of Israel, declares, "Ah, I will be relieved of My adversaries And avenge Myself on My foes.
Woe to those who add house to house and join field to field, Until there is no more room, So that you have to live alone in the midst of the land!
Woe to those who rise early in the morning that they may pursue strong drink, Who stay up late in the evening that wine may inflame them!
Woe to those who drag iniquity with the cords of falsehood, And sin as if with cart ropes;
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes And clever in their own sight !
Woe to those who are heroes in drinking wine And valiant men in mixing strong drink,
Woe to those who enact evil statutes And to those who constantly record unjust decisions,
Woe to Assyria, the rod of My anger And the staff in whose hands is My indignation,
Alas, the uproar of many peoples Who roar like the roaring of the seas, And the rumbling of nations Who rush on like the rumbling of mighty waters!
Alas, oh land of whirring wings Which lies beyond the rivers of Cush,
Woe to the proud crown of the drunkards of Ephraim, And to the fading flower of its glorious beauty, Which is at the head of the fertile valley Of those who are overcome with wine!
Woe, O Ariel, Ariel the city where David once camped! Add year to year, observe your feasts on schedule.
Woe to those who deeply hide their plans from the LORD , And whose deeds are done in a dark place, And they say, "Who sees us?" or "Who knows us?"
"Woe to the rebellious children," declares the LORD , "Who execute a plan, but not Mine, And make an alliance, but not of My Spirit, In order to add sin to sin;
Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help And rely on horses, And trust in chariots because they are many And in horsemen because they are very strong, But they do not look to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek the LORD !
Woe to you, O destroyer, While you were not destroyed; And he who is treacherous, while others did not deal treacherously with him. As soon as you finish destroying, you will be destroyed; As soon as you cease to deal treacherously, others will deal treacherously with you.
"Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker - An earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! Will the clay say to the potter, 'What are you doing?' Or the thing you are making say, 'He has no hands '?
"Woe to him who says to a father, 'What are you begetting?' Or to a woman, 'To what are you giving birth?' "
"Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy and eat. Come, buy wine and milk Without money and without cost.
