For you have forsaken the ways of a your people, O house of Jacob. Indeed they are full of diviners b from the east and of soothsayers like the Philistines, and they clasp hands with foreigners.
Their land is filled with silver and gold, and there is no end to their treasures; their land is filled with horses, and there is no end to their chariots.
Their land is filled with idols; they bow down to the work of their hands, to what their own fingers have made.
And so people are humbled, and everyone is brought low— do not forgive them!
Enter into the rock, and hide in the dust from the terror of the Lord, and from the glory of his majesty.
The haughty eyes of people shall be brought low, and the pride of everyone shall be humbled; and the Lord alone will be exalted on that day.
For the Lord of hosts has a day against all that is proud and lofty, against all that is lifted up and high; c13
against all the cedars of Lebanon, lofty and lifted up; and against all the oaks of Bashan;
against all the high mountains, and against all the lofty hills;
against every high tower, and against every fortified wall;
against all the ships of Tarshish, and against all the beautiful craft. d
