1 H8085 [H8798] Hear H1697 ye the word H3068 which the LORD H1696 [H8765] speaketh H1004 to you, O house H3478 of Israel:
2 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H3068 the LORD H3925 [H8799] , Learn H1870 not the way H1471 of the heathen H2865 [H8735] , and be not dismayed H226 at the signs H8064 of heaven H1471 ; for the heathen H2865 [H8735] are dismayed H1992 at them.
3 H2708 For the customs H5971 of the people H1892 are vain H3772 [H8804] : for one cutteth H6086 a tree H3293 out of the forest H4639 , the work H3027 of the hands H2796 of the workman H4621 , with the axe.
4 H3302 [H8762] They deck H3701 it with silver H2091 and with gold H2388 [H8762] ; they fasten H4548 it with nails H4717 and with hammers H6328 [H8686] , that it may not move.
5 H4749 They are upright H8560 as the palm tree H1696 [H8762] , but speak H5375 [H8800] not: they must needs H5375 [H8735] be borne H6805 [H8799] , because they cannot go H3372 [H8799] . Be not afraid H7489 [H8686] of them; for they cannot do evil H3190 [H8687] , neither also is it in them to do good.
6 H3068 Forasmuch as there is none like thee, O LORD H1419 ; thou art great H8034 , and thy name H1419 is great H1369 in might.
7 H3372 [H8799] Who would not fear H4428 thee, O King H1471 of nations H2969 [H8804] ? for to thee doth it appertain H2450 : forasmuch as among all the wise H1471 men of the nations H4438 , and in all their kingdoms, there is none like thee.
8 H259 But they are altogether H1197 [H8799] stupid H3688 [H8799] and foolish H6086 : the stock H4148 is a doctrine H1892 of vanities.
9 H3701 Silver H7554 [H8794] beaten into plates H935 [H8714] is brought H8659 from Tarshish H2091 , and gold H210 from Uphaz H4639 , the work H2796 of the craftsman H3027 , and of the hands H6884 [H8802] of the goldsmith H8504 : blue H713 and purple H3830 is their clothing H4639 : they are all the work H2450 of skilful men.
10 H3068 But the LORD H571 is the true H430 God H2416 , he is the living H430 God H5769 , and an everlasting H4428 king H7110 : at his wrath H776 the earth H7493 [H8799] shall tremble H1471 , and the nations H3557 [H8686] shall not be able to abide H2195 his indignation.
11 H1836 Thus H560 [H8748] shall ye say H426 to them, The gods H3809 that have not H5648 [H8754] made H8065 the heavens H778 and the earth H7 [H8748] , even they shall perish H772 from the earth H8460 , and from under H429 these H8065 heavens.
12 H6213 [H8802] He hath made H776 the earth H3581 by his power H3559 [H8688] , he hath established H8398 the world H2451 by his wisdom H5186 [H8804] , and hath stretched out H8064 the heavens H8394 by his understanding.
13 H5414 [H8800] When he uttereth H6963 his voice H1995 , there is a multitude H4325 of waters H8064 in the heavens H5387 , and he causeth the vapours H5927 [H8686] to ascend H7097 from the ends H776 of the earth H6213 [H8804] ; he maketh H1300 lightnings H4306 with rain H3318 [H8686] , and bringeth forth H7307 the wind H214 out of his treasures.
14 H120 Every man H1197 [H8738] is stupid H1847 in his knowledge H6884 [H8802] : every goldsmith H3001 [H8689] is confounded H6459 by the graven image H5262 : for his molten image H8267 is falsehood H7307 , and there is no breath in them.
15 H1892 They are vanity H4639 , and the work H8595 of errors H6256 : in the time H6486 of their punishment H6 [H8799] they shall perish.
16 H2506 The portion H3290 of Jacob H3335 [H8802] is not like them: for he is the former H3478 of all things; and Israel H7626 is the rod H5159 of his inheritance H3068 : The LORD H6635 of hosts H8034 is his name.
17 H622 [H8798] Gather up H3666 thy wares H776 out of the land H3427 [H8802] , O inhabitant H4692 of the fortress.
18 H559 [H8804] For thus saith H3068 the LORD H7049 [H8802] , Behold, I will sling H3427 [H8802] out the inhabitants H776 of the land H6471 at this once H6887 [H8689] , and will distress H4672 [H8799] them, that they may find it so.
19 H188 Woe H7667 is me for my hurt H4347 ! my wound H2470 [H8737] is grievous H559 [H8804] : but I said H389 , Truly H2483 this is a grief H5375 [H8799] , and I must bear it.
20 H168 My tabernacle H7703 [H8795] is spoiled H4340 , and all my cords H5423 [H8738] are broken H1121 : my children H3318 [H8804] are gone forth H5186 [H8802] from me, and they are not: there is none to stretch forth H168 my tent H6965 [H8688] any more, and to set up H3407 my curtains.
21 H7462 [H8802] For the pastors H1197 [H8738] have become stupid H1875 [H8804] , and have not sought H3068 the LORD H7919 [H8689] : therefore they shall not prosper H4830 , and all their flocks H6327 [H8738] shall be scattered.
22 H6963 Behold, the sound H8052 of a rumour H935 [H8802] is come H1419 , and a great H7494 commotion H6828 from the north H776 country H7760 [H8800] , to make H5892 the cities H3063 of Judah H8077 desolate H4583 , and a den H8577 of dragons.
23 H3068 O LORD H3045 [H8804] , I know H1870 that the way H120 of man H376 is not in himself: it is not in man H1980 [H8802] that walketh H3559 [H8687] to direct H6806 his steps.
24 H3068 O LORD H3256 [H8761] , correct H4941 me, but with judgment H639 ; not in thy anger H4591 [H8686] , lest thou bring me to nothing.
25 H8210 [H8798] Pour out H2534 thy fury H1471 upon the heathen H3045 [H8804] that know H4940 thee not, and upon the families H7121 [H8804] that call H8034 not on thy name H398 [H8804] : for they have eaten up H3290 Jacob H398 [H8804] , and devoured H3615 [H8762] him, and consumed H5116 him, and have made his habitation H8074 [H8689] desolate.
