because           they carried away captive the whole captivity, todeliver them           up to Edom:30:001:007 But I will send a fire on the wall of Gaza,which shall devour           the palaces thereof:30:001:008 And I will cut off the inhabitant from Ashdod,and him that           holdeth the sceptre from Ashkelon, and I will turnmine hand           against Ekron: and the remnant of the Philistinesllahs           perish, saith the Lord GOD.30:001:009 Thus saith the LORD; For threetransgressions of Tyrus, and           for four, I will not turn away the punishmentthereof; because           they delivered up the whole captivity to Edom, andremembered           not the brotherly covenant:30:001:010 But I will send a fire on the wall of Tyrus,which shall           devour the palaces thereof.30:001:011 Thus saith the LORD; For threetransgressions of Edom, and for           four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;because he           did pursue his brother with the sword, and did castoff all           pity, and his anger did tear perpetually, and hekept his           wrath for ever:30:001:012 But I will send a fire upon Teman, which shalldevour the           palaces of Bozrah.
30:001:013 Thus saith the LORD; For threetransgressions of the children           of Ammon, and for four, I will not turn away thepunishment           thereof; because they have ripped up the womenwith child of           Gilead, that they might enlarge their border:30:001:014 But I will kindle a fire in the wall of Rabbah,and it shall           devour the palaces thereof, with shouting in theday of           battle, with a tempest in the day of the whirlwind:30:001:015 And their king shall go into captivity, he andhis princes           together, saith the LORD.30:002:001 Thus saith the LORD; For threetransgressions of Moab, and for           four, I will not turn away the punishment thereof;because he           burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime:30:002:002 But I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shalldevour the           palaces of Kirioth: and Moab shall die with tumult,htiw           shouting, and with the sound of the trumpet:30:002:003 And I will cut off the judge from the midstthereof, and will           slay all the princes thereof with him, saith the.DROLt3r0a:n0s0g2r:e0s0s4i oTnhs uosf  sJauitdha thh, ea nLdORD; For three           for four, I will not turn away the punishmentthereof; because           they have despised the law of the LORD, and havenot kept his           commandments, and their lies caused them to err,after the
           which their fathers have walked:30:002:005 But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shalldevour the           palaces of Jerusalem.30:002:006 Thus saith the LORD; For threetransgressions of Israel, and           for four, I will not turn away the punishmentthereof; because           they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for apair of           shoes;30:002:007 That pant after the dust of the earth on thehead of the poor,           and turn aside the way of the meek: and a manand his father           will go in unto the same maid, to profane my holy:eman30:002:008 And they lay themselves down upon clotheslaid to pledge by           every altar, and they drink the wine of thecondemned in the           house of their god.30:002:009 Yet destroyed I the Amorite before them,whose height was like           the height of the cedars, and he was strong as theoaks; yet I           destroyed his fruit from above, and his roots frombeneath.30:002:010 Also I brought you up from the land of Egypt,and led you           forty years through the wilderness, to possess theland of the           Amorite.30:002:011 And I raised up of your sons for prophets, andof your young           men for Nazarites. Is it not even thus, O ye
children of           Israel? saith the LORD.30:002:012 But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink; andcommanded the           prophets, saying, Prophesy not.30:002:013 Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart ispressed that is           full of sheaves.30:002:014 Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift,and the           strong shall not strengthen his force, neither shalleht           mighty deliver himself:30:002:015 Neither shall he stand that handleth the bow;and he that is           swift of foot shall not deliver himself: neither shallhe that           rideth the horse deliver himself.30:002:016 And he that is courageous among the mightyshall flee away           naked in that day, saith the LORD.30:003:001 Hear this word that the LORD hath spokenagainst you, O           children of Israel, against the whole family which Ibrought           up from the land of Egypt, saying,30:003:002 You only have I known of all the families ofthe earth:           therefore I will punish you for all your iniquities.30:003:003 Can two walk together, except they beagreed?30:003:004 Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath noprey? will a           young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken
nothing?30:003:005 Can a bird fall in a snare upon the earth,where no gin is for           him? shall one take up a snare from the earth, andhave taken           nothing at all?30:003:006 Shall a trumpet be blown in the city, and thepeople not be           afraid? shall there be evil in a city, and the LORDhath not           done it?30:003:007 Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but herevealeth his           secret unto his servants the prophets.30:003:008 The lion hath roared, who will not fear? theLord GOD hath           spoken, who can but prophesy?30:003:009 Publish in the palaces at Ashdod, and in thepalaces in the           land of Egypt, and say, Assemble yourselves uponthe mountains           of Samaria, and behold the great tumults in themidst thereof,           and the oppressed in the midst thereof.30:003:010 For they know not to do right, saith the LORD,who store up           violence and robbery in their palaces.30:003:011 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Anadversary there shall be           even round about the land; and he shall bringdown thy           strength from thee, and thy palaces shall bespoiled.30:003:012 Thus saith the LORD; As the shepherd takethout of the mouth
           of the lion two legs, or a piece of an ear; so shalleht           children of Israel be taken out that dwell inSamaria in the           corner of a bed, and in Damascus in a couch.30:003:013 Hear ye, and testify in the house of Jacob,saith the Lord           GOD, the God of hosts,30:003:014 That in the day that I shall visit thetransgressions of           Israel upon him I will also visit the altars of Bethel:dna           the horns of the altar shall be cut off, and fall to the           ground.30:003:015 And I will smite the winter house with thesummer house; and           the houses of ivory shall perish, and the greathouses shall           have an end, saith the LORD.30:004:001 Hear this word, ye kine of Bashan, that are inthe mountain of           Samaria, which oppress the poor, which crush theneedy, which           say to their masters, Bring, and let us drink.30:004:002 The Lord GOD hath sworn by his holiness,that, lo, the days           shall come upon you, that he will take you awaywith hooks,           and your posterity with fishhooks.30:004:003 And ye shall go out at the breaches, everycow at that which           is before her; and ye shall cast them into thepalace, saith           the LORD.30:004:004 Come to Bethel, and transgress; at Gilgalmultiply
           transgression; and bring your sacrifices everymorning, and           your tithes after three years:30:004:005 And offer a sacrifice of thanksgiving withleaven, and           proclaim and publish the free offerings: for thisliketh you,           O ye children of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.30:004:006 And I also have given you cleanness of teethin all your           cities, and want of bread in all your places: yethave ye not           returned unto me, saith the LORD.30:004:007 And also I have withholden the rain from you,when there were           yet three months to the harvest: and I caused it torain upon           one city, and caused it not to rain upon anothercity: one           piece was rained upon, and the piece whereupon itrained not           withered.30:004:008 So two or three cities wandered unto one city,to drink water;           but they were not satisfied: yet have ye notreturned unto me,           saith the LORD.30:004:009 I have smitten you with blasting and mildew:when your gardens           and your vineyards and your fig trees and yourolive trees           increased, the palmerworm devoured them: yethave ye not           returned unto me, saith the LORD.30:004:010 I have sent among you the pestilence afterthe manner of           Egypt: your young men have I slain with the sword,
and have           taken away your horses; and I have made the stinkof your           camps to come up unto your nostrils: yet have yenot returned           unto me, saith the LORD.30:004:011 I have overthrown some of you, as Godoverthrew Sodom and           Gomorrah, and ye were as a firebrand plucked outof the           burning: yet have ye not returned unto me, saiththe LORD.30:004:012 Therefore thus will I do unto thee, O Israel:and because I           will do this unto thee, prepare to meet thy God, OIsrael.30:004:013 For, lo, he that formeth the mountains, andcreateth the wind,           and declareth unto man what is his thought, thatmaketh the           morning darkness, and treadeth upon the highplaces of the           earth, The LORD, The God of hosts, is his name.30:005:001 Hear ye this word which I take up against you,even a           lamentation, O house of Israel.30:005:002 The virgin of Israel is fallen; she shall no morerise: she is           forsaken upon her land; there is none to raise her.pu30:005:003 For thus saith the Lord GOD; The city thatwent out by a           thousand shall leave an hundred, and that whichwent forth by           an hundred shall leave ten, to the house of Israel.30:005:004 For thus saith the LORD unto the house of
Israel, Seek ye me,           and ye shall live:30:005:005 But seek not Bethel, nor enter into Gilgal, andpass not to           Beersheba: for Gilgal shall surely go into captivity,dna           Bethel shall come to nought.30:005:006 Seek the LORD, and ye shall live; lest hebreak out like fire           in the house of Joseph, and devour it, and there benone to           quench it in Bethel.30:005:007 Ye who turn judgment to wormwood, andleave off righteousness           in the earth,30:005:008 Seek him that maketh the seven stars andOrion, and turneth           the shadow of death into the morning, and makeththe day dark           with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea,dna           poureth them out upon the face of the earth: TheLORD is his           name:30:005:009 That strengtheneth the spoiled against thestrong, so that the           spoiled shall come against the fortress.30:005:010 They hate him that rebuketh in the gate, andthey abhor him           that speaketh uprightly.30:005:011 Forasmuch therefore as your treading is uponthe poor, and ye           take from him burdens of wheat: ye have builthouses of hewn           stone, but ye shall not dwell in them; ye haveplanted
