1 So says Jehovah: For three transgressions of Moab, yea for four, I will not turn away from it; because he burned the bones of the king of Edom into lime. 2 But I will send a fire upon Moab, and it shall devour the palaces of Kerioth. And Moab shall die with great noise, with shouting, with the sound of a trumpet. 3 And I will cut off the judge from its midst, and will kill all its rulers with him, says Jehovah.
4 So says Jehovah: For three transgressions of Judah, yea for four, I will not turn away from it; because they have despised the Laws of Jehovah, and have not kept His commandments. And their lies after which their fathers walked led them astray. 5 But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.
6 So says Jehovah: For three transgressions of Israel, yea for four, I will not turn away from it; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of sandals; 7 panting after the dust of the earth on the head of the poor, and turning aside the way of the meek. And a man and his father will go in to the same woman, to defile My holy name. 8 And they will stretch beside every altar on garments taken in pledge, and they drink the wine of the condemned in the house of their god.
9 Yet I destroyed the Amorite before them, whose height was like the height of the cedars, and he was strong as the oaks; yet I destroyed his fruit from above and his roots from below. 10 Also I brought you up from the land of Egypt and led you forty years through the wilderness to possess the land of the Amorite. 11 And I raised up prophets from your sons and Nazarites from your young men. Is it not even so, O sons of Israel? says Jehovah.
12 But you gave the Nazarites wine to drink, and commanded the prophets, saying, Do not prophesy. 13 Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart full of sheaves is pressed. 14 And refuge shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not strengthen his power, nor shall the mighty deliver his life; 15 nor shall he who handles the bow stand. And the swift-footed shall not save; and the horse rider shall not save his life. 16 And the stout-hearted among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day, says Jehovah.
