10 1Tell it not in Gath, Weep not at all. At aBeth-le-aphrah roll yourself in the dust.
11 bGo on your way, inhabitant of cShaphir, in 2shameful nakedness. The inhabitant of d3Zaanan does not eescape. The lamentation of fBeth-ezel: "He will take from you its gsupport."
12 For the inhabitant of hMaroth Becomes weak 4waiting for good, Because a calamity has come down from the LORD To the 5gate of Jerusalem.
13 Harness the chariot to the team of horses, O inhabitant of 6Lachish - She was the beginning of sin To the daughter of Zion - Because in you were found The 7rebellious acts of Israel.
14 Therefore you will give parting 8gifts On behalf of Moresheth-gath; The houses of 9Achzib will become a 10deception To the kings of Israel.
15 Moreover, I will bring on you The one who takes possession, O inhabitant of i11Mareshah. The glory of Israel will enter 12Adullam.
