2 Hear, all you peoples!
Listen, O earth, and all that is in it!
Let the Lord God be a witness against you,
The Lord from cHis holy temple.
He will come down
And tread on the high places of the earth.
4 dThe mountains will melt under Him,
And the valleys will split
Like wax before the fire,
Like waters poured down a steep place.
And for the sins of the house of Israel.
What is the transgression of Jacob?
Is it not Samaria?
And what are the ehigh places of Judah?
Are they not Jerusalem?
6 “Therefore I will make Samaria fa heap of ruins in the field,
Places for planting a vineyard;
I will pour down her stones into the valley,
And I will guncover her foundations.
And all her hpay as a harlot shall be burned with the fire;
All her idols I will lay desolate,
For she gathered it from the pay of a harlot,
And they shall return to the ipay of a harlot.”
8 Therefore I will wail and howl,
I will go stripped and naked;
jI will make a wailing like the jackals
And a mourning like the ostriches,
For kit has come to Judah;
It has come to the gate of My people—
