And thus it came to pass that Israel sinned against Yahweh their God, who brought them up out of the land of Egypt, from under the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt, - yea they did reverence to other gods; and walked in the statutes of the nations, whom Yahweh had dispossessed from before the sons of Israel, - and in the statutes of the kings of Israel, which they had made. And the sons of Israel did, secretly, things which were not right, against Yahweh their God, - and built for themselves high places in all their cities, from the watchmen's tower, to the fortified city. read more.
And they set up for themselves pillars and Sacred Stems, upon every high hill, and under every green tree; and burned incense there, in all the high places, like the nations whom Yahweh drave out from before them, - and did things that were wicked, so as to provoke Yahweh to anger; and they served the manufactured gods, as to which Yahweh had said to them, Ye shall not do this thing. And Yahweh testified against Israel and against Judah, through all his prophets - every one who had a vision, saying - Turn ye from your wicked ways, and keep my commandments, my statutes, according to all the law which I commanded your fathers; and which I sent unto you through my servants the prophets. Howbeit they hearkened not, - but stiffened their neck, like the neck of their fathers, who trusted not in Yahweh their God; but rejected his statutes, and his covenant, which he solemnised with their fathers, and his testimonies wherewith he testified against them, - and followed vanity, and became vain, and followed the nations that were round about them, as to whom Yahweh charged them, so that they should not do like them. But they forsook all the commandments of Yahweh their God, and made for themselves something molten - two calves, and made a Sacred Stem, and bowed themselves down to all the army of the heavens, and served Baal; and made their sons and their daughters pass through the fire, and used divinations and enchantments, and sold themselves to do the thing that was wicked in the eyes of Yahweh, provoking him to wrath. So Yahweh shewed himself exceeding angry with Israel, and removed them from his presence, - there was none left, save the tribe of Judah, alone. Even Judah, kept not the commandments of Yahweh their God, - but walked in the statutes of Israel, which they had made. So Yahweh rejected all the seed of Israel, and humiliated them, and delivered them into the hand of spoilers, - until he had cast them out from his presence; for he rent Israel away from the house of David, and they made Jeroboam son of Nebat, king, - and Jeroboam thrust away Israel from following Yahweh, and caused them to commit a great sin. And the sons of Israel walked in all the sins of Jeroboam which he had committed, - they turned not away therefrom; until that Yahweh removed Israel from his presence, according as he spake through all his servants the prophets, - and so Israel was driven away from off their own soil, to Assyria, until this day.

Let no one trust in him that - by vanity - is deceived, for, vanity, shall be his recompense;

Therefore, Thus saith Yahweh, Ask I pray you among the nations, - Who hath heard such things as these? A very horrible thing, hath, the virgin, Israel done! Shall the snow of Lebanon, fall from the rock of the field? Or shall waters from afar, deep, overflowing, be dried up? Yet my people have forgotten me, Unto vanity, have they been burning incense; And it hath caused them to stumble In their ways The roads of age-past times, To walk in by-paths - A way not cast up. read more.
To make their land a desolation The hissings of age-abiding times, - Every one that passeth by her, shall be astonished and wag his head. Like an east wind, will I scatter them before the enemy, - The back and not the face, will I let them see in the day of their distress.


But, ye are they - Who forsake Yahweh Who forget my holy mountain - Who prepare, for Fortune, a table and Who fill for Destiny, mixed wine; Therefore will I destine you to the sword, And, ye all, to the slaughter, shall bow down. Because I called and ye answered not, I spake, and ye hearkened not, - But did that which was wicked in mine eyes, And o that wherein I delighted not, ye made choice, Therefore, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, - Lo! my servants, shall eat but, ye, shall be famished, Lo! my servants, shall drink but, ye shall be thirsty, - Lo! my servants, shall rejoice but ye, shall turn pale; read more.
Lo! my servants, shall shout in triumph for mirth of heart But, ye, shall make outcry, for pain of heart, And for a breaking of spirit, shall ye howl. So shall ye leave your name for an oath, to my chosen ones, - So then My Lord Yahweh, will slay thee, - And his servants, will he, call by another name:

My people, are destroyed, for lack of knowledge, - Because, thou, hast rejected knowledge, therefore will I reject thee from ministering as priest unto me, and, because thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also, will forget thy children.

Shall the snow of Lebanon, fall from the rock of the field? Or shall waters from afar, deep, overflowing, be dried up? Yet my people have forgotten me, Unto vanity, have they been burning incense; And it hath caused them to stumble In their ways The roads of age-past times, To walk in by-paths - A way not cast up. read more.
To make their land a desolation The hissings of age-abiding times, - Every one that passeth by her, shall be astonished and wag his head. Like an east wind, will I scatter them before the enemy, - The back and not the face, will I let them see in the day of their distress.

But it shall be if thou forget, Yahweh thy God, and go after ether gods, and serve them, and bow thyself down to them, I testify against you to-day, that ye shall perish: like the nations which, Yahweh, is causing to perish from before you, so, shall ye perish, because ye would not hearken unto the voice of Yahweh your God.

They sacrificed to mischievous demons to a No-GOD, Gods whom they knew not, - New ones lately come in, Your fathers never shuddered at them! Of the Rock who had begotten thee, thou wast unmindful, - And didst forget GOD who had given thee birth. When Yahweh, he derided, - Because his sons and his daughters gave pro-vocation. read more.
So he said: - I will hide any face from them, I will see what will be their hereafter, - For a generation given to intrigue, they are, Sons, whom there is no trusting; They have moved me to jealousy with a No-GOD, They have angered me with their vanities: I, therefore, will move them to jealousy with a No-people, With an impious nation, will I anger them. For, a fire, is kindled in mine anger, And shall burn as far as hades beneath, - And consume the earth with her produce, And set ablaze the foundations of the mountains: I will heap on them, calamities, - Mine arrows, will I spend upon them: The meltings of hunger, The devourings of fever, And the dangerous pestilence, - And, the tooth of beasts, will I send among them, With the poison of crawlers of the dust:

They made a calf in Horeb, - and bowed down to a molten image; Thus changed they my glory, for the similitude of an ox that eateth grass. They forgat GOD their saviour, who had done great things in Egypt: read more.
Wonders in the land of Ham, Terrible things by the Red Sea. Then would he have bidden to destroy them, - had not Moses his chosen, stood in the breach before him, To turn back his wrath from destroying.

And so Israel hath forgotten his Maker, and hath built temples, and, Judah, hath multiplied fortified cities, - Therefore will I send a fire upon his cities, and it shall consume the palaces thereof.

Yet, I, Yahweh, have been thy God from the land of Egypt, - and, god beside me, shalt thou not acknowledge, for, saviour, is there none besides me. I, tended thee in the desert, - in a land parched with drought: Whenever they were pastured, then were they satisfied, They were satisfied, and their heart, was lifted up, - because of this, they forgat me. read more.
Therefore am I become to them as a lion, - As a leopard by the way, do I watch. I will fall upon them as a bear bereaved, and will read asunder the enclosure of their heart, - that I may devour them there, like a lioness, the wild beast of the field, shall tear them in pieces.

As snow in summer, and as rain in harvest, so, unbecoming to a dullard is honour.

Who giveth snow like wool, Hoar-frost - like ashes, he scattereth:

Which darken by reason of the cold, over them, is a covering made by the snow:

Shall the snow of Lebanon, fall from the rock of the field? Or shall waters from afar, deep, overflowing, be dried up?
