Judgment on Judah and Israel

1 Thus says the LORD,
  “For three transgressions of aMoab and for four
  I will not Irevoke its [punishment],
  Because he bburned the bones of the king of Edom to lime.
  2 “So I will send fire upon Moab
  And it will consume the citadels of aKerioth;
  And Moab will die amid btumult,
  With Iwar cries and the sound of a trumpet.
  3 “I will also cut off the Iajudge from her midst
  And slay all her bprinces with him,” says the LORD.

  4 ¶ Thus says the LORD,
  “For three transgressions of aJudah and for four
  I will not revoke its [punishment],
  Because they brejected the law of the LORD
  And have not kept His statutes;
  Their Iclies also have led them astray,
  Those after which their dfathers walked.
  5 “So I will asend fire upon Judah
  And it will consume the citadels of Jerusalem.”

  6 ¶ Thus says the LORD,

  Because they bsell the righteous for money
  And the needy for a pair of sandals.
  7 “These who Ipant after the [very] dust of the earth on the head of the ahelpless

  And a cman and his father IIresort to the same IIIgirl

  And he [was] strong as the oaks;
  I even destroyed his cfruit above and his root below.
  10 “It was I who abrought you up from the land of Egypt,
  And I led you in the wilderness bforty years
  IThat you might take possession of the land of the cAmorite.
  11 “Then I araised up some of your sons to be prophets
  And some of your young men to be bNazirites.
  Is this not so, O sons of Israel?” declares the LORD.
  12 “But you made the Nazirites drink wine,
  And you commanded the prophets saying, ‘You ashall not prophesy!’
  13 “Behold, I am Iaweighted down beneath you
  As a wagon IIis weighted down when filled with sheaves.

God's wrath against Moab,

1 ¶ Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Moab, and for four, I will not turn away [the punishment] thereof; 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 tumult, with shouting, [and] with the sound of the trumpet: 3 And I will cut off the judge from the midst thereof, and will slay all the princes thereof with him, saith the LORD.

[2] Is 9:5; Jr 48:24, 34, 41; Am 1:14.
[3] Nu 24:17; Jr 48:7, 25.

upon Judah,

4 ¶ Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Judah, and for four, I will not turn away [the punishment] thereof; because they have despised the law of the LORD, and have not kept his commandments, and their lies caused them to err, after the which their fathers have walked: 5 But I will send a fire upon Judah, and it shall devour the palaces of Jerusalem.

[4] Lv 26:14; Dt 31:16; 32:15; Jg 2:11, 17; 10:6; 2S 12:9; 2K 17:19; 22:11; 2Ch 30:7; 36:14; Ne 1:7; 9:26, 29; Is 5:24; 9:15; 28:15; 44:20; Jr 8:2, 9; 9:14, 25; 16:19; 23:13, 25; 28:15; Ezk 13:6, 22; 16:1; 20:13, 16, 18, 24, 30; 22:8, 28; 23:11; Dn 9:5; Ho 5:12; 6:11; 12:2; Am 3:2; Hab 2:18; Ro 1:25; 1Th 4:8; 1P 1:18.

and upon Israel.

6 ¶ Thus saith the LORD; For three transgressions of Israel, and for four, I will not turn away [the punishment] thereof; because they sold the righteous for silver, and the poor for a pair of shoes; 7 That pant after the dust of the earth on the head of the poor, and turn aside the way of the meek: and a man and his father will go in unto the [same] maid, to profane my holy name: 8 And they lay [themselves] down upon clothes laid to pledge by every altar, and they drink the wine of the condemned [in] the house of their god.

God complaineth of their unfaithfulness.

9 ¶ Yet destroyed I 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 beneath. 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 of your sons for prophets, and of your young men for Nazarites. [Is it] not even thus, O ye children of Israel? saith the LORD. 12 But ye gave the Nazarites wine to drink; and commanded the prophets, saying, Prophesy not. 13 Behold, I am pressed under you, as a cart is pressed [that is] full of sheaves. 14 Therefore the flight shall perish from the swift, and the strong shall not strengthen his force, neither shall the mighty deliver himself: 15 Neither shall he stand that handleth the bow; and [he that is] swift of foot shall not deliver [himself]: neither shall he that rideth the horse deliver himself. 16 And [he that is] courageous among the mighty shall flee away naked in that day, saith the LORD.
