1 G1765 Grow in strength, G5207 O sons G* of Benjamin, G1537 from G3319 the midst G3588 G* of Jerusalem! G2532 And G1722 in G* Tekoa G4591 signify G4536 by trumpet! G2532 And G5228 over G* Beth-haccerem G142 lift G4592 a sign! G3754 For G2556 bad things G1582.2 look G575 from G1005 the north, G2532 and G4936.1 [2destruction G3173 1great] G1096 is happening.
2 G2532 And G851 [2shall be removed G3588 G5311 1your haughtiness], G1473 G2364 O daughter G* of Zion.
3 G1519 [3unto G1473 4her G2240 2shall come G4166 1Shepherds] G2532 and G3588 G4168 their flocks; G1473 G2532 and G4078 they shall pitch G1909 [2against G1473 3her G4633 1tents] G2945 round about. G2532 And G4165 [2shall tend G1538 1each] G3588 G5495 with his hand. G1473
4 G3903 Make preparations G1909 against G1473 her G1519 for G4171 war! G450 Rise up! G2532 for G305 we should ascend G1909 upon G1473 her G3314 at midday. G3759 Woe G1473 to us, G3754 for G2827 [3has declined G3588 1the G2250 2day], G3754 for G1587 [5fail G3588 1the G4639 2shadows G3588 3of the G2250 4day].
5 G450 Rise up! G2532 for G305 we should ascend G1722 at G3571 night, G2532 and G1311 utterly destroy G3588 G2310 her foundations. G1473
6 G3754 For G3592 thus G3004 says G2962 the lord G3588 of the G1411 forces, G1581 Cut down G3588 G3586 her trees! G1473 G1632 Discharge G1909 [2against G* 3Jerusalem G1411 1a force], G5599 O G4172 [2city G5571 1lying]! G3650 Complete G2615.1 tyranny G1722 is in G1473 her.
7 G5613 As G5594 [2cools G2978.1 1a well] G5204 its water, G1473 G3779 so G5594 [2cools G2549 1evil] G1473 her. G763 Impiety G2532 and G5004 misery G191 shall be heard G1722 in G1473 her G1909 before G4383 her face G1473 G1275 always.
8 G4192 In misery G2532 and G3148 with a whip G3811 you shall be corrected, G* O Jerusalem, G3361 lest G868 [2should depart G3588 G5590 1my soul] G1473 G575 from G1473 you; G3361 lest G4160 I should make G1473 you G4.2 an untrodden G1093 land, G3748 which G3756 shall not G2733.1 be settled in.
9 G3754 For G3592 thus G3004 says G2962 the lord G3588 of the G1411 forces, G2561.3 Glean! G2561.3 Glean G5613 [4as G288 5a grapevine G3588 1the G2645 2remnants G3588 G* 3of Israel]! G1994 Return G5613 as G5166 one gathering the vintage G1909 returns unto G3588 G2593.5 his basket! G1473
10 G4314 To G5100 whom G2980 should I speak, G2532 and G1263 testify, G2532 and G1522 he shall hearken? G2400 Behold, G564 [2 are uncircumcised G3588 G3775 1their ears], G1473 G2532 and G3756 they are not able G1410 G191 to hear. G2400 Behold, G3588 the G4487 word G2962 of the lord G1096 became G1473 to them G1519 as G3680 a scorning; G3766.2 in no way G1014 shall they be willing G1473 to hear it. G191
11 G2532 And G3588 G2372 [2my rage G1473 G4130 1I filled], G2532 and G1907 I waited, G2532 but G3756 not G4931 finished them off entirely. G1473 G1632 I will pour out G1909 upon G3516 the simple ones G1855 outside, G2532 and G1909 upon G4864 the gathering G3495 of young men G260 together; G3754 for G435 man G2532 and G1135 woman G4815 shall be seized; G4245 the elder G3326 with G4134 the one full G2250 of days.
12 G2532 And G3344 [2shall be transferred G3588 G3614 1their houses] G1473 G1519 to G2087 others, G68 with fields G2532 and G3588 G1135 their wives G1473 G2009.1 together. G3754 For G1614 I will stretch out G3588 G5495 my hand G1473 G1909 against G3588 the ones G2730 dwelling G3588 G1093 this land, G3778 G3004 says G2962 the lord .
13 G3754 For G575 from G3397 their small G1473 G2532 and G2193 unto G3173 great G3956 all G4931 have completed G459 lawless deeds; G575 from G2409 the priest G2532 and G2193 unto G5578 false prophet, G3956 all G4160 acted G5571 falsely.
14 G2532 And G2390 they repaired G3588 the G4938 destruction G3588 G2992 of my people G1473 G1848 treating it with contempt, G2532 and G3004 saying, G1515 Peace. G2532 And G4226 where G1510.2.3 is G1515 peace?
15 G2617 They were shamed G3754 for G1587 they failed; G2532 but G3761 neither G5613 as G2617 ones being disgraced G2617 were they disgraced; G2532 and G3588 G819 their dishonor G1473 G3756 they knew not. G1097 G1223 On account of G3778 this G4098 they shall fall G1722 in G3588 G4431 their downfall, G1473 G2532 and G1722 in G2540 time G1984 of their visitation G1473 G622 they shall perish, G2036 said G2962 the lord .
16 G3592 Thus G3004 says G2962 the lord, G2476 Stand G1909 upon G3588 the G3598 ways, G2532 and G1492 behold! G2532 and G2065 ask G5147 [2roads G2962 3 of the lord G166 1of eternal]! G2532 and G1492 see G4169 what kind G1510.2.3 is G3588 the G3598 [2way G3588 G18 1good]! G2532 and G897.2 proceed G1722 in G1473 it! G2532 and G2147 you will find G49 purification G3588 to G5590 your souls. G1473 G2532 And G2036 they said, G3756 We will not G4198 go.
17 G2525 I have placed G1909 over G1473 you G4649 watchmen; G191 hearken G3588 to the G5456 sound G4536 of the trumpet! G2532 But G2036 they said, G3756 We will not G191 hearken.
18 G1223 On account of G3778 this, G191 [3heard G3588 1the G1484 2nations], G2532 and G3588 the ones G4165 tending G3588 G4168 their flocks. G1473
19 G191 Hearken, G1093 O earth! G2400 Behold, G1473 I G1863 will bring G1909 upon G3588 G2992 this people G3778 G2556 bad things -- G3588 the G2590 fruit G654.1 of their rejection. G1473 G3754 For G3588 G3056 my word G1473 G3756 they heeded not, G4337 G2532 and G3588 G3551 my law G1473 G683 they have thrust away.
20 G2444 Why G1473 [5to me G3030 2frankincense G1537 3from out of G* 4Sheba G5342 1do you bring], G2532 and G2792 cinnamon G1537 from out of G1093 a land G3113 far off? G3588 G3646 Your whole burnt-offerings G1473 G3756 are not G1510.2.6 G1184 acceptable, G2532 and G3588 G2378 your sacrifices G1473 G3756 have not G2237.1 delighted G1473 me.
21 G1223 On account of G3778 this, G3592 thus G3004 says G2962 the lord, G2400 Behold, G1473 I G1325 impute G1909 upon G3588 G2992 this people G3778 G769 weakness, G2532 and G770 [4shall weaken G1722 5in G1473 6it G3962 1fathers G2532 2and G5207 3sons] G260 together; G1069 neighbor G2532 and G3588 G4139 his near one G1473 G622 shall perish.
22 G3592 Thus G3004 says G2962 the lord, G2400 Behold, G2992 a people G2064 comes G575 from G1005 the north, G2532 and G1484 nations G1825 shall be awakened G575 from G2078 the end G3588 of the G1093 earth.
23 G5115 Bow G2532 and G2214.1 pike G2902 they shall hold. G2483.2 It is audacious, G1510.2.3 G2532 and G3756 will not G1653 show mercy. G5456 Its sound G1473 G5613 is as G2281 the sea G2949.1 swelling up. G1909 Upon G2462 horses G2532 and G716 chariots G3904.4 it shall deploy G5613 as G4442 fire G1519 for G4171 war G4314 against G1473 you, G2364 O daughter G* of Zion.
24 G191 We heard G3588 the G189 report G1473 of them; G3886 [2were disabled G3588 G5495 1our hands]; G1473 G2347 affliction G2722 holds us down; G1473 G5604 pangs G5613 as G5088 a woman giving birth.
25 G3361 Do not go forth G1607 G1519 into G68 a field, G2532 and G1722 [3in G3588 4the G3598 5ways G3361 1do not G897.2 2proceed]! G3754 For G4501 a broadsword G3588 of the G2190 enemies G3939 sojourns G2943 round about.
26 G2364 Daughter G2992 of my people, G1473 G4024 gird on G4526 sackcloth! G2661.3 Strew G4700 ashes! G3997 [3mourning G27 4as of a beloved one G4160 1You shall observe G4572 2for yourself] G2870 by beating the breast G3629.2 pitiably. G3754 For G1810 suddenly G2240 [2shall come G5004 1misery] G1909 upon G1473 you.
27 G1381.1 [3 as an approver G1325 1I have appointed G1473 2you] G1722 among G2992 peoples G1381 being tried; G2532 and G1097 you shall know G1722 in G3588 G1381 my trying G1473 G3588 G3598 their way. G1473
28 G3956 All G432.1 are unhearing, G4198 going G4646.2 crookedly; G5475 as brass G2532 and G4604 iron G3956 [2all G1311 3being corrupted G1510.2.6 1they are].
29 G1587 [2failed G5445.6 1 The bellows] G575 at G4442 the fire; G1587 [2failed G3432.1 1 the lead]; G1519 [3in G2756 4vain G695 1 the silversmith G694.1 2works silver]; G4189 their wickednesses G1473 G3756 do not G5080 melt away.
