1 H7751 Run H7751 you to and fro H2351 through the streets H3389 of Jerusalem, H7200 and see H4994 now, H3045 and know, H1245 and seek H7339 in the broad H518 places thereof, if H4672 you can find H376 a man, H518 if H6213 there be any that executes H4941 judgment, H1245 that seeks H530 the truth; H5545 and I will pardon it.
2 H518 And though H559 they say, H3068 The LORD H2416 lives; H403 surely H7650 they swear H8267 falsely.
3 H3068 O LORD, H5869 are not your eyes H530 on the truth? H5221 you have stricken H2342 them, but they have not grieved; H3615 you have consumed H3985 them, but they have refused H3947 to receive H4148 correction: H6440 they have made their faces H2388 harder H5553 than a rock; H3985 they have refused H7725 to return.
4 H559 Therefore I said, H389 Surely H1992 these H1800 are poor; H2973 they are foolish: H3045 for they know H1870 not the way H3068 of the LORD, H4941 nor the judgment H430 of their God.
5 H3212 I will get H1419 me to the great H1696 men, and will speak H3045 to them; for they have known H1870 the way H3068 of the LORD, H4941 and the judgment H430 of their God: H1992 but these H3162 have altogether H7665 broken H5923 the yoke, H5423 and burst H4147 the bonds.
6 H5921 Why H3651 H738 a lion H3293 out of the forest H5221 shall slay H2061 them, and a wolf H6160 of the evenings H7703 shall spoil H5246 them, a leopard H8245 shall watch H5921 over H5892 their cities: H3605 every H3318 one that goes H2007 out there H2963 shall be torn H3588 in pieces: because H6588 their transgressions H7231 are many, H4878 and their backslidings H6105 are increased.
7 H335 How H5545 shall I pardon H2063 you for this? H1121 your children H5800 have forsaken H7650 me, and sworn H3808 by them that are no H430 gods: H7646 when I had fed them to the full, H5003 they then committed H5003 adultery, H1413 and assembled H2181 themselves by troops in the harlots’ H1004 houses.
8 H2109 They were as fed H5483 horses H7904 in the morning: H376 every H376 one H6670 neighed H413 after H7453 his neighbor’s H802 wife.
9 H6485 Shall I not visit H428 for these H5002 things? said H3068 the LORD: H5315 and shall not my soul H5358 be avenged H834 on such H1471 a nation H2088 as this?
10 H5927 Go H8284 you up on her walls, H7843 and destroy; H6213 but make H3615 not a full end: H5493 take H5493 away H5189 her battlements; H3068 for they are not the LORD’s.
11 H1004 For the house H3478 of Israel H1004 and the house H3063 of Judah H898 have dealt very treacherously H5002 against me, said H3068 the LORD.
12 H3584 They have belied H3068 the LORD, H559 and said, H3808 It is not he; neither H7451 shall evil H935 come H3808 on us; neither H7200 shall we see H2719 sword H7458 nor famine:
13 H5030 And the prophets H1961 shall become H7307 wind, H1697 and the word H3541 is not in them: thus H6213 shall it be done to them.
14 H3651 Why H3541 thus H559 said H3068 the LORD H430 God H6635 of hosts, H3282 Because H1696 you speak H2088 this H1697 word, H2005 behold, H5414 I will make H1697 my words H6310 in your mouth H784 fire, H2088 and this H5971 people H6086 wood, H398 and it shall devour them.
15 H2009 See, H935 I will bring H1471 a nation H4801 on you from far, H1004 O house H3478 of Israel, H5002 said H3068 the LORD: H386 it is a mighty H1471 nation, H5769 it is an ancient H1471 nation, H1471 a nation H3956 whose language H3045 you know H3808 not, neither H8085 understand H4100 what H1696 they say.
17 H398 And they shall eat H7105 up your harvest, H3899 and your bread, H1121 which your sons H1323 and your daughters H398 should eat: H398 they shall eat H6629 up your flocks H1241 and your herds: H398 they shall eat H1612 up your vines H8384 and your fig H7567 trees: they shall impoverish H4013 your fenced H5892 cities, H834 wherein H2004 H982 you trusted, H2719 with the sword.
18 H1571 Nevertheless H1992 in those H3117 days, H5002 said H3068 the LORD, H6213 I will not make H3615 a full end with you.
19 H1961 And it shall come H3588 to pass, when H559 you shall say, H8478 Why H4100 H6213 does H3068 the LORD H430 our God H3605 all H428 these H559 things to us? then shall you answer H5800 them, Like as you have forsaken H5647 me, and served H5236 strange H430 gods H776 in your land, H3651 so H5647 shall you serve H2114 strangers H776 in a land that is not your’s.
20 H5046 Declare H2063 this H1004 in the house H3290 of Jacob, H8085 and publish H3063 it in Judah, H559 saying,
21 H8085 Hear H4994 now H2063 this, H5530 O foolish H5971 people, H369 and without H3820 understanding; H5869 which have eyes, H7200 and see H241 not; which have ears, H8085 and hear not:
22 H3372 Fear H5002 you not me? said H3068 the LORD: H2342 will you not tremble H6440 at my presence, H834 which H7760 have placed H2344 the sand H1366 for the bound H3220 of the sea H5769 by a perpetual H2706 decree, H3808 that it cannot H5674 pass H1530 it: and though the waves H1607 thereof toss H3201 themselves, yet can they not prevail; H1993 though they roar, H3201 yet can H5674 they not pass H5674 over it?
23 H2088 But this H5971 people H5637 has a revolting H4784 and a rebellious H3820 heart; H5493 they are revolted H3212 and gone.
24 H3808 Neither H559 say H3824 they in their heart, H4994 Let us now H3372 fear H3068 the LORD H430 our God, H5414 that gives H1653 rain, H3138 both the former H4456 and the latter, H6256 in his season: H8104 he reserves H2708 to us the appointed H7620 weeks H7105 of the harvest.
25 H5771 Your iniquities H5186 have turned H428 away these H2403 things, and your sins H4513 have withheld H2896 good things from you.
26 H5971 For among my people H4672 are found H7563 wicked H7789 men: they lay wait, H7918 as he that sets H3353 snares; H5324 they set H4889 a trap, H3920 they catch H582 men.
27 H3619 As a cage H4392 is full H5775 of birds, H3651 so H1004 are their houses H4392 full H4820 of deceit: H5921 therefore H3651 H6238 they are become H1431 great, H6238 and waxen rich.
28 H8080 They are waxen fat, H6245 they shine: H1571 yes, H5674 they overpass H1697 the deeds H7451 of the wicked: H1777 they judge H1779 not the cause, H1779 the cause H3490 of the fatherless, H6743 yet they prosper; H4941 and the right H34 of the needy H8199 do they not judge.
29 H6485 Shall I not visit H428 for these H5002 things? said H3068 the LORD: H5315 shall not my soul H5358 be avenged H834 on such H1471 a nation H2088 as this?
