King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Hear ye this word which I take up against you, even a lamentation, O house of Israel. 1 Hear this word, O house of Israel, this lament I take up concerning you:
2 The virgin of Israel is fallen ; she shall no more rise : she is forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her up . 2 "Fallen is Virgin Israel, never to rise again, deserted in her own land, with no one to lift her up."
3 For thus saith the Lord GOD; The city that went out by a thousand shall leave an hundred, and that which went forth by an hundred shall leave ten, to the house of Israel. 3 This is what the Sovereign LORD says: "The city that marches out a thousand strong for Israel will have only a hundred left; the town that marches out a hundred strong will have only ten left."
