1 H1945 Woe H5850 to the crown H1348 of pride, H7910 to the drunkards H669 of Ephraim, H6643 whose splendrous H8597 beauty H5034 [H8802] is a fading H6731 flower, H7218 who are on the head H8081 of the rich H1516 valleys H1986 [H8803] of them that are overcome H3196 with wine!
2 H136 Behold, the Lord H2389 hath a mighty H533 and strong one, H2230 who as a tempest H1259 of hail H6986 and a destroying H8178 storm, H2230 as a flood H3524 of mighty H4325 waters H7857 [H8802] overflowing, H3240 [H8689] shall cast down H776 to the earth H3027 with the hand.
3 H5850 The crown H1348 of pride, H7910 the drunkards H669 of Ephraim, H7429 [H8735] shall be trodden H7272 under feet:
4 H6643 And the splendrous H8597 beauty, H7218 which is on the head H8081 of the rich H1516 valley, H5034 [H8802] shall be a fading H6733 flower, H1061 and as the early fruit H7019 before the summer; H7200 [H8802] which when he that looketh H7200 [H8799] upon it seeth, H3709 while it is yet in his palm H1104 [H8799] he eateth it up.
5 H3117 In that day H3068 shall the LORD H6635 of hosts H5850 be for a crown H6643 of splendor, H6843 and for a diadem H8597 of beauty, H7605 to the remnant H5971 of his people,
6 H7307 And for a spirit H4941 of judgment H3427 [H8802] to him that sitteth H4941 in judgment, H1369 and for strength H7725 [H8688] to them that turn H4421 the battle H8179 to the gate.
7 H428 But they H7686 [H8804] also have strayed H3196 through wine, H7941 and through strong drink H8582 [H8804] are out of the way; H3548 the priest H5030 and the prophet H7686 [H8804] have strayed H7941 through strong drink, H1104 [H8738] they are overwhelmed H4480 with H3196 wine, H8582 [H8804] they are out of the way H7941 through strong drink; H7686 [H8804] they stray H7203 in vision, H6328 [H8804] they stumble H6417 in judgment.
8 H7979 For all tables H4390 [H8804] are full H6892 of vomit H6675 and filthiness, H4725 so that there is no place clean.
9 H3384 [H8686] Whom shall he teach H1844 knowledge? H995 [H8799] and whom shall he make to understand H8052 doctrine? H1580 [H8803] them that are weaned H2461 from the milk, H6267 and drawn H7699 from the breasts.
10 H6673 For precept H6673 must be upon precept, H6673 precept H6673 upon precept; H6957 line H6957 upon line, H6957 line H6957 upon line; H2191 here a little, H2191 and there a little:
11 H3934 For with stammering H8193 lips H312 and another H3956 tongue H1696 [H8762] will he speak H5971 to this people.
12 H559 [H8804] To whom he said, H4496 This is the rest H5889 which ye may cause the languished H5117 [H8685] to rest; H4774 and this is the refreshing: H14 [H8804] yet they would H8085 [H8800] not hear.
13 H1697 But the word H3068 of the LORD H6673 was to them precept H6673 upon precept, H6673 precept H6673 upon precept; H6957 line H6957 upon line, H6957 line H6957 upon line; H2191 here a little, H2191 and there a little; H3212 [H8799] that they might go, H3782 [H8804] and fall H268 backward, H7665 [H8738] and be broken, H3369 [H8738] and snared, H3920 [H8738] and taken.
14 H8085 [H8798] Therefore hear H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD, H3944 ye scornful H582 men, H4910 [H8802] that rule H5971 this people H3389 who are in Jerusalem.
15 H559 [H8804] Because ye have said, H3772 [H8804] We have made H1285 a covenant H4194 with death, H7585 and with the grave H6213 [H8804] are we H2374 in agreement; H7857 [H8802] when the overflowing H7752 H7885 [H8675] scourge H5674 H5674 [H8799] shall pass through, H935 [H8799] it shall not reach H7760 [H8804] us: for we have made H3577 lies H4268 our refuge, H8267 and under falsehood H5641 [H8738] have we hid ourselves:
16 H559 [H8804] Therefore thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD, H3245 [H8765] Behold, I lay H6726 in Zion H68 for a foundation a stone, H976 a tried H68 stone, H3368 a precious H6438 corner H3245 [H8716] stone, a sure H4143 foundation: H539 [H8688] he that believeth H2363 [H8686] shall not make haste.
17 H4941 Judgment H7760 [H8804] also will I lay H6957 to the line, H6666 and righteousness H4949 to the plummet: H1259 and the hail H3261 [H8804] shall sweep away H4268 the refuge H3577 of lies, H4325 and the waters H7857 [H8799] shall overflow H5643 the hiding place.
18 H1285 And your covenant H4194 with death H3722 [H8795] shall be broken, H2380 and your agreement H7585 with the grave H6965 [H8799] shall not stand; H7857 [H8802] when the overflowing H7752 scourge H5674 [H8799] shall pass through, H4823 then ye shall be trodden down by it.
19 H1767 From the time H5674 [H8800] that it goeth forth H3947 [H8799] it shall take H1242 you: for morning H1242 by morning H5674 [H8799] shall it pass over, H3117 by day H3915 and by night: H2113 and it shall be a vexation H995 [H8687] only to understand H8052 the report.
20 H4702 For the bed H7114 [H8804] is shorter H8311 [H8692] than that a man can stretch H4541 himself on it: and the covering H6887 [H8804] narrower H3664 [H8692] than that he can wrap himself in it.
21 H3068 For the LORD H6965 [H8799] shall rise H2022 as on mount H6559 Perazim, H7264 [H8799] he shall be moved H6010 as in the valley H1391 of Gibeon, H6213 [H8800] that he may do H4639 his work, H2114 [H8801] his strange H4639 work; H5647 [H8800] and bring to pass H5656 his act, H5237 his foreign H5656 act.
22 H3887 [H8698] Now therefore be ye not mockers, H4147 lest your bands H2388 [H8799] be made strong: H8085 [H8804] for I have heard H136 from the Lord H3069 GOD H6635 of hosts H3617 a consumption, H2782 [H8737] even determined H776 upon the whole earth.
23 H238 [H8685] Give ye ear, H8085 [H8798] and hear H6963 my voice; H7181 [H8685] prick up your ears, H8085 [H8798] and hear H565 my speech.
24 H2790 [H8802] Doth the plowman H2790 [H8799] plow H3117 all day H2232 [H8800] to sow? H6605 [H8762] doth he open H7702 [H8762] and break the clods H127 of his soil?
25 H7737 [H8765] When he hath made even H6440 the face H6327 [H8689] of it, doth he not cast abroad H7100 the black cummin, H2236 [H8799] and scatter H3646 the cummin, H7760 [H8804] and cast H2406 in the wheat H7795 in rows H5567 [H8737] and the appointed H8184 barley H3698 and the rye H1367 in their place?
26 H430 For his God H3256 [H8765] doth instruct H4941 him to discretion, H3384 [H8686] and doth teach him.
27 H7100 For the black cummin H1758 [H8714] are not threshed H2742 with a threshing instrument, H5699 neither is a cart H212 wheel H5437 [H8714] turned about H3646 upon the cummin; H7100 but the black cummin H2251 [H8735] are beaten out H4294 with a staff, H3646 and the cummin H7626 with a rod.
28 H3899 Bread H1854 [H8714] grain is ground; H5331 because he will not always H156 H1758 [H8800] be threshing H2000 [H8804] it, nor break H1536 it with the wheel H5699 of his cart, H1854 [H8799] nor grind H6571 it with his horsemen.
