Hear this word that the LORD has spoken against you, O people of Israel, against the whole family which 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 he has no prey? Does a young lion cry out from his den, if he has taken nothing?
Does a bird fall in 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 evil befall a city, unless the LORD has done it?
