14  Wherefore hear the word of the Lord, dye scornful men,

That rule this people which is in Jerusalem.

15  Because ye have said, We have emade a covenant with death,

And ewith hell are we at agreement;

When fthe overflowing scourge shall pass through, it shall not come unto us:

For gwe have made lies our refuge,

And gunder falsehood have we hid ourselves:

16  Therefore thus saith the Lord God,

hBehold, I lay in Zion for a foundation ia stone,

jA tried stone, ia precious corner stone, ka sure foundation:

hlHe that believeth shall not make haste.

17  Judgment also will I lay to bmthe line,

And righteousness to mthe plummet:

And nthe hail shall sweep away gthe refuge of lies,

And the waters shall foverflow gthe hiding place.

18  And eyour covenant with death shall be disannulled,

And eyour agreement with hell shall not stand;

fWhen the overflowing scourge shall pass through,

Then ye shall be trodden down by it.

19  From the time that it goeth forth it shall take you:

For nnmorning by morning shall it pass over, by day and by night:

And it shall be oa vexation only ||to understand pthe report.

20  For the bed is shorter than that a man can stretch himself on it:

And qthe covering narrower than that he can wrap himself in it.

21  For the Lord shall rise up ras in mount Perazim,

He shall be wroth sas in the valley of tGibeon,

That he may do his work, uhis strange work;

And bring to pass his act, his strange act.

22  Now therefore dbe ye not mockers,

Lest your bands be made strong:

For I have heard from the Lord God of hosts

wA consumption, even determined

Upon the whole earth.
