Wo [to] him who is gaining evil gain for his house, To set on high his nest, To be delivered from the hand of evil,
Thou hast counselled a shameful thing to thy house, To cut off many peoples, and sinful [is] thy soul.
For a stone from the wall doth cry out, And a holdfast from the wood answereth it.
Wo [to] him who is building a city by blood, And establishing a city by iniquity.
Lo, is it not from Jehovah of Hosts And peoples are fatigued for fire, And nations for vanity are weary?
For full is the earth of the knowledge of the honour of Jehovah, As waters cover [the bottom of] a sea.
Wo [to] him who is giving drink to his neighbour, Pouring out thy bottle, and also making drunk, In order to look on their nakedness.
Thou hast been filled -- shame without honour, Drink thou also, and be uncircumcised, Turn round unto thee doth the cup of the right hand of Jehovah, And shameful spewing [is] on thine honour.
For violence [to] Lebanon doth cover thee, And spoil of beasts doth affright them, Because of man's blood, and of violence [to] the land, [To] the city, and [to] all dwelling in it.
What profit hath a graven image given That its former hath graven it? A molten image and teacher of falsehood, That trusted hath the former on his own formation -- to make dumb idols?
Wo [to] him who is saying to wood, `Awake,' `Stir up,' to a dumb stone, It a teacher! lo, it is overlaid -- gold and silver, And there is no spirit in its midst.
