For the Lord has sworn by himself, , Because I abhor all the pride of Jacob, I do also hate his countries, and I will cut off city with all who inhabit it.
And it shall come to pass, if there be ten men left in one house, that they shall die.
But a remnant shall be left behind, and their relations shall take them, and shall strenuously endeavor to carry forth their bones from the house: and one shall say to the heads of the house, Is there yet else with thee?
And he shall say, No else. And shall say, Be silent, that thou name not the name of the Lord.
For, behold, the Lord commands, and he will smite the great house with breaches, and the little house with rents.
Will horses run upon rocks? will they refrain from neighing at mares? for ye have turned judgment into poison, and the fruit of righteousness into bitterness:
ye who rejoice at vanity, who say, Have we not possessed horns by our own strength?
