“Those at Ease in Zion”1 a Woe to those who are at ease in Zion
And to those who feel secure in the mountain of Samaria,
The b distinguished men of the foremost of nations,
To whom the house of Israel comes.
2Go over to c Calneh and look,
And go from there to d Hamath the great,
Then go down to e Gath of the Philistines.
▼ Or youthey better than these kingdoms,
Or is their territory greater than yours?
3Do you g put off the day of calamity,
And would you h bring near the seat of violence?
4Those who recline on beds of ivory
And sprawl on their i couches,
And j eat lambs from the flock
And calves from the midst of the stall,
5Who improvise to the sound of the harp,
And like David have ▼
▼ Or invented musical instrumentscomposed l songs for themselves,
6Who m drink wine from ▼
▼ Lit sprinkling basinssacrificial bowls
While they anoint themselves with the finest of oils,
Yet they have not o grieved over the ruin of Joseph.
7Therefore, they will now p go into exile at the head of the exiles,
And the q sprawlers’ ▼
▼ Or cultic feastsbanqueting will ▼
▼ Lit turn asidepass away.
8The Lord ▼
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered LordGod has u sworn by Himself, the Lord God of hosts has declared:
“I v loathe the arrogance of Jacob,
▼ Lit hatedetest his x citadels;
Therefore I will y deliver up the city and ▼
▼ Lit its fullnessall it contains.”
9And it will be, if aa ten men are left in one house, they will die. 10Then one’s ▼
▼ Or beloved oneuncle, or his ▼
▼ Lit one who burns him, ad undertaker, will lift him up to carry out his bones from the house, and he will say to the one who is in the innermost part of the house, “Is anyone else with you?” And that one will say, “No one.” Then he will ▼
▼ Lit sayanswer, af “Keep quiet. For ▼
▼ Lit not to make mention of the name ofthe name of the Lord is ah not to be mentioned.” 11For behold, the Lord is going to ai command that the aj great house be smashed to pieces and the small house to fragments. 12Do horses run on rocks?
Or does one plow ▼
▼ Another reading is the sea with oxenthem with oxen?
Yet you have turned al justice into poison
And the fruit of righteousness into ▼
▼ I.e. bitternesswormwood,
13You who rejoice in ▼
▼ Lit a thing of nothing, ao Lodebar,
▼ Lit WhoAnd say, “Have we not aq by our own strength taken ▼
▼ Lit a pair of hornsKarnaim for ourselves?”
14“For behold as I am going to raise up a nation against you,
O house of Israel,” declares the Lord God of hosts,
“And they will afflict you from the at entrance of Hamath
To the au brook of the Arabah.”
