9Proclaim on the citadels in u Ashdod and on the citadels in the land of Egypt and say, “Assemble yourselves on the v mountains of Samaria and see the great tumults within her and the w oppressions in her midst. 10“But they x do not know how to do what is right,” declares the Lord, “these who y hoard up ▼
▼ I.e. the booty from violenceviolence and devastation in their citadels.” 11Therefore, thus says the Lord God, “An aa enemy, even one surrounding the land,
Will pull down your ▼
▼ Or strongholdstrength from you
And your ac citadels will be looted.”
12Thus says the Lord, “Just as the shepherd ▼
▼ Or delivers, ae snatches from the lion’s mouth a couple of legs or a piece of an ear,
So will the sons of Israel dwelling in Samaria be ▼
▼ Or deliveredsnatched away—
With the ag corner of a bed and the ▼
▼ Lit damask, ai cover of a couch!
13“Hear and aj testify against the house of Jacob,”
Declares the Lord God, the God of hosts.
14“For on the day that I punish Israel’s transgressions,
I will also punish the altars of ak Bethel;
The horns of the altar will be cut off
And they will fall to the ground.
15“I will also smite the ▼
▼ Or autumn, am winter house together with the an summer house;
The houses of ▼
▼ I.e. ivory inlay, ap ivory will also perish
And the aq great houses will come to an end,”
Declares the Lord.
