Hear this word that the Lord has spoken against you, O people of Israel, against the whole family that I brought up out of the land of Egypt:
You only have I known of all the families of the earth; therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.
Do two walk together unless they have made an appointment?
Does a lion roar in the forest, when it has no prey? Does a young lion cry out from its den, if it has caught nothing?
Does a bird fall into a snare on the earth, when there is no trap for it? Does a snare spring up from the ground, when it has taken nothing?
Is a trumpet blown in a city, and the people are not afraid? Does disaster befall a city, unless the Lord has done it?
