1 H7751 Run back and forth H2351 through the streets H3389 of Jerusalem, H7200 and see H3045 now, and know, H1245 and seek H7339 in the broad places H4672 there, if you can find H376 a man, H3426 if there be H6213 any that executes H4941 judgment, H1245 that seeks H530 the truth; H5545 and I will pardon it.
3 H3068 O Lord, H5869 are not your eyes H530 upon 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, H1800 Surely these 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 go H1419 unto the great men, H1696 and will speak H3045 unto them; for they have known H1870 the way H3068 of the Lord, H4941 and the judgment H430 of their God: H3162 but these have altogether H7665 broken H5923 the yoke, H5423 and burst H4147 the bonds.
6 H738 Therefore a lion H3293 out of the forest H5221 shall kill H2061 them, and a wolf H6160 of the evenings H7703 shall plunder H5246 them, a leopard H8245 shall watch H5892 over their cities: H3318 every one that goes out H2007 there shall H2963 be torn in pieces: H6588 because 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 sons H5800 have forsaken H7650 me, and sworn H3808 by them that are no H430 gods: H7650 when I had fed them to the full, H5003 they then committed adultery, H1413 and assembled themselves by troops H2181 in the harlots' H1004 houses.
8 H2109 They were as fed H5483 horses H7904 in the morning: H376 every one H6670 neighed H7453 after his neighbors H802 wife.
9 H6485 Shall I not visit H5002 for these things? says H3068 the Lord: H5315 and shall not my soul H5358 be avenged H1471 on such a nation as this?
10 H5927 Go you up H8284 upon her walls, H7843 and destroy; H6213 but make H3617 not a full end: H5493 take 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 H898 treacherously H5002 against me, says H3068 the Lord.
12 H3584 They have denied H3068 the Lord, H559 and said, H7451 It is not he; neither shall evil H935 come H7200 upon us; neither shall we see H2719 sword H7458 nor famine:
13 H5030 And the prophets H7307 shall become wind, H1696 and the word H6213 is not in them: thus shall it be done unto them.
14 H559 Therefore thus says H3068 the Lord H430 God H6635 of hosts, H1696 Because you speak H1697 this word, H5414 behold, I will make H1697 my words H6310 in your mouth H784 fire, H5971 and this people H6086 wood, H398 and it shall devour them.
15 H935 Behold, I will bring H1471 a nation H4801 upon you from far, H1004 O house H3478 of Israel, H5002 says H3068 the Lord: H386 it is a mighty H1471 nation, H5769 it is a ancient H1471 nation, H1471 a nation H3956 whose language H3045 you know H8085 not, neither understand H1696 what they say.
17 H398 And they shall eat up H7105 your harvest, H3899 and your bread, H1121 which your sons H1323 and your daughters H398 should eat: H398 they shall eat up H6629 your flocks H1241 and your herds: H398 they shall eat up H1612 your vines H8384 and your fig trees: H7567 they shall impoverish H4013 your fenced H5892 cities, H2007 where you H982 trusted, H2719 with the sword.
18 H3117 Nevertheless in those days, H5002 says H3068 the Lord, H6213 I will not make H3617 a full end with you.
19 H559 And it shall come to pass, when you shall say, H8478 Why H6213 does H3068 the Lord H430 our God H559 do all these things unto us? then shall you answer H5800 them, Just as you have forsaken H5647 me, and served H5236 strange H430 gods H776 in your land, H5647 so shall you serve H2114 strangers H776 in a land that is not yours.
20 H5046 Declare H1004 this in the house H3290 of Jacob, H8085 and publish H3063 it in Judah, H559 saying,
21 H8085 Hear H5530 now this, O foolish H5971 people, H3820 and without understanding; H5869 which have eyes, H7200 and see H241 not; which have ears, H8085 and hear not:
22 H3372 Fear H5002 you not me? says H3068 the Lord: H2342 will you not tremble H6440 at my presence, H7760 which have placed H2344 the sand H1366 for the bound H3220 of the sea H5769 by a perpetual H2706 decree, H5674 that it cannot pass H1530 it: and though the waves H1607 there toss H3201 themselves, yet can they not prevail; H1993 though they roar, H5674 yet can they not pass over it?
23 H5971 But this people H5637 has a revolting H4784 and a rebellious H3820 heart; H5493 they have revolted H3212 and are gone.
24 H559 Neither say H3824 they in their heart, H3372 Let us now 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 unto us the appointed H7620 weeks H7105 of the harvest.
25 H5771 Your iniquities H5186 have turned away H2403 these 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, H1004 so are their houses H4392 full H4820 of deceit: H1431 therefore they are become great, H6238 and grown rich.
28 H8080 They are grown fat, H6245 they shine: H5674 Yes, they overpass H1697 the deeds H7451 of the wicked: H1777 they judge H1779 not the cause, H3490 the cause 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 H5002 for these things? says H3068 the Lord: H5315 shall not my soul H5358 be avenged H1471 on such a nation as this?
