Declare ye it not in Geth, weep ye not with tears: in the house of Dust sprinkle yourselves with dust.
And pass away, O thou that dwellest in the beautiful place, covered with thy shame: she went not forth that dwelleth in the confines: the house adjoining shall receive mourning from you, which stood by herself.

A tumult of chariots hath astonished the inhabitants of Lachis: it is the beginning of sin to the daughter of Sion for in thee were found the crimes of Israel.
Therefore shall she send messengers to the inheritance of Geth: the houses of lying to deceive the kings of Israel.
Yet will I bring an heir to thee that dwellest in Maresa: even to Odollam shall the glory of Israel come.
Make thee bald, and be polled for thy delicate children: enlarge thy baldness as the eagle: for they are carried into captivity from thee.
