|New Living Translation (NLT)
||New International Version (NIV)
1 Destruction is certain for the city of Samaria -- the pride and joy of the drunkards of Israel ! It sits in a rich valley, but its glorious beauty will suddenly disappear. Destruction is certain for that city -- the pride of a people brought low by wine.
1 Woe to that wreath, the pride of Ephraim's drunkards, to the fading flower, his glorious beauty, set on the head of a fertile valley-- to that city, the pride of those laid low by wine!
